Last Updated: March 5, 2019

We have a mixed farm on Swanpool Creek, in Swanpool (north east Victoria) with a farmhouse on the top of a hill with views of the surrounding mountains. We have a vineyard (Chardonnay and Shiraz grapes), a eucalyptus tree plantation, a large garden (as well as a veggie garden) and a small flock of Dorper sheep, an alpaca, 2 horses and some chickens and ducks.

We are looking for people that would be willing to stay for a minimum of a 4 days and work about 5-6 hours a day / 5 days a week in exchange for comfortable and private accommodation and delicious home cooked meals. The work is variable and (depending on your skills) can include things such as helping to restore the vineyard, gardening, farm maintenance, looking after the farm animals, carpentry, painting and cooking.

Swanpool is centrally located in beautiful north east Victoria in the foothills of the Australian Alps. We would be delighted to show you the region while you are staying with us- we are near national parks, historic towns, wineries and snowfields.

We are about 2 hours out of Melbourne by car. There is a regular train service from Melbourne (and from Sydney) to Benalla and we can pick you us at the station. We have a B&B and accommodation may be in a caravan when we have guests staying (otherwise it will be in the house).
