Would you like to stay in our newly renovated house with us in exchange for work in the beautiful town of Donnybrook?

We love having people stay with us and although we no longer live on a bigger farm, we still have plenty to do on the smaller one. There is also the possibility of visiting the larger farm for maintenance with us in Esperance.

The work we require is mainly gardening, lawn mowing, and pruning trees but there will also be some cleaning and cooking at times. This work is not hard, most is very light and easy and we ask nothing from you we are not prepared to help with!

We love trying meals from other cultures as I am not the most experimental cook but there is always plenty of food!

We have horses and a veggie patch but no longer have all the other farm animals we once had. Donnybrook has a lot of paid fruit picking and farm work going if you are a good worker. We have previously found paid work with friends for our HelpX people that work hard.

Your own vehicle is desirable as the local work is out of town but we will be in and out to Donnybrook most days and it has plenty to offer plus only about a half hour from Bunbury. Its a very central location to view the south west from and we are happy to take you sight seeing when time permits.

Now for the nitty gritty. We do require you to do some daily work for your room and plentiful food in very comfortable and clean environment.

We are fair, honest hosts and want fair and honest workers! Our first taste of helpx was a terrible experience and we were very reluctant to do another stay. Luckily we did as we got 2 lovely girls for 6 weeks and the had 3 weeks with another lovely girl from Taiwan. Our longest visitor was from France and lived with us for nearly 6 months and moved from Esperance to Kirup then to Donnybrook with us. It was a big move from a farm to a house and he was an amazing help and became part of the family. We could not have done it without him! Since then we have had 2 other French guys for a number of weeks with the second being an excellent help.

So if you want somewhere safe, clean, friendly and nurturing to stay, come see us. We love to socialise and we want to make your stay in Australia as good as possible. We want to treat you like family and show you around our lovely town! We really don't expect much from you to achieve this goal - just common courtesy, social skills and some manners.
