Our property is a great place to stay to get to know Australia. We have lots of native wildlife mainly kangaroos and birds, there are beautiful views and amazing stars at night. We are in the Macedon Ranges area just 65 minutes from Melbourne city. We have a vineyard, olive grove, greenhouses, Maremma dog, 2 alpacas, sheep and very friendly goats.

Stay in private room with excellent wifi and three meals a day in return for 4 hours work per day. Stay Sunday - Friday (there is tent accommodation on the weekends if you want to stay)take off and explore Melbourne, Bendigo or this region on the other two days.

Please only apply by email on this website.

Some of the work to be done includes:
Weeding, mulching and fertilising vineyard and olive grove
General gardening and weeding
Wood chopping

10 minutes drive to town - Kyneton, where there is a fast train to Melbourne (Bendigo/Epsom Line). We can pick you up from Kyneton train station if you do not have transport. Approximately 1 hour drive from Melbourne and MEL Airport. We go into Kyneton most days. The nearby towns Daylesford, Trentham and Historic Goldfields towns are great to explore.
