We have a 100 acre bush property with a small bike shop (Cycletrek) and 10km of mountain bike trails (also lovely walk trails) and 1 cabin accommodation (our home is 450m away on the same property). We are in the Preston Valley 20km south east of Donnybrook, 50km from Bunbury. See website for further details.
Helpx guests will stay in our beautiful solar powered, self contained cabin. Stays can be from Sunday nights to Friday mornings as we usually have paying guests on weekends and school holidays. Check with us if you want a longer stay - if we are not already booked, we can discuss your needs or there is the possibility of weekending in our campground.
All bedding and linen is provided, and all basic kitchen equipment, so you can easily provide all your own meals. You will leave the cabin as you found it, ready for us to make up for our paying guests.
You will need your own vehicle, but we can lend you a bike if you'd like to ride the trails.
Mobile phone is via Telstra or Optus - Vodaphone is generally useless but you may pick up reception if you walk around the property a bit. There's no internet connection at the cabin however Help-x guests may come up to our house for that if desired.
The nearest shops are in Donnybrook (20km), other than a small local store 4km down the road, which also does take away meals. There are plenty of wineries in the area and a couple of breweries over in the next (Ferguson) valley. A bit further afield are Balingup and Bridgetown - lovely little places to visit.

2 hours of work per person per day, can be done in a block (e.g. 4 hours one day, none the next) and is varied from helping with firewood collection, building (we are owner builders and of course have not finished our house yet!), household chores like window and gutter cleaning, and various jobs working on the cabin.
