Hi! We are based in Heidelberg Heights 12km from Melbourne's CBD. Our community has 20 households with approx. 35 people ranging in age from babies to folks in their 60s. We're a housing cooperative and a member of a social housing program. We've hosted guests under the Help Exchange program for approx. three years now and we've had many rewarding experiences. We are an open, friendly, environmentally-conscious community who enjoys meeting new people, and we value the help and new energy that travellers bring to our community.

- 2 hrs work per day in exchange for accommodation (which includes access to shared bathroom, toilet, kitchen, laundry, and lounge).
- No food provided.
- Work includes cleaning, gardening, cooking, working with community members, etc.

- We're interested in hosting guests who would like to experience staying in an intentional community.
- We'd like guests to stay for a minimum of two weeks (this reduces the workload on hosting and inducting guests).
- We'd like at least two weeks' notice of intention to stay.
- We require that guests have their own travel insurance (including medical and evacuation cover).

If you're interested, please send us a message and tell us:
- a bit about yourself (where you're from, why you're traveling, how long you're in Australia, etc.)
- if you have any relevant skills?
- your intended visit dates
- any references (from other HelpX stays or other)
- links to your Facebook profile (if you have one!)

If we have vacancies we will contact you to arrange a Skype chat or phone call to talk more.

Jan to mid Apr: unavailable
Late Apr onwards: availability

We look forward to hearing from you!

Chris & Mikoto.
