We live in a rural setting on the edge of Warrnambool (3.5 hrs by train from Melbourne) with its beautiful coastline and sea.
Warrnambool has just been voted Australia’s most livable city and we live 20 mins from a pretty fishing village which is also a favourite tourist destination.
We also have a holiday rental house in Warrnambool very close to the beach/ocean, Visitor Information Centre and Flagstaff Hill.
South West Victoria is very interesting and diverse with lots to see & do including the Great Ocean Road. We can also take you to see kangaroos, koalas, emus in a natural setting in the area. 3 of our Helpxers have found a koala in our garden - it happens sometimes.

Our property has lovely views to the north and consists of a large garden with fruit trees, vegetable garden, home, outdoor swimming pool, tennis court and thatched Balinese bungalow which is used as a reflexology clinic and we have a very special 13 year old West Highland dog who loves attention.

We (Doug and Sandy) have travelled extensively and lived overseas. Sandy has worked for a farm & cultural exchange program for many years & lived in Denmark & Canada and Doug has travelled South America for a year so we appreciate what it is like to live with families in other countries and to work and explore at the same time.

We would love some short stay assistance in our garden, house and outdoor areas. 4 hours help per day in exchange for accommodation & meals & we will introduce you to our area & culture & assist with your English (if you would like). Help may involve weeding, digging, paving, painting, cooking if you enjoy, sometimes helping at our apartment, feeding chooks, cleaning up & some help in the house. We also have bicycles if you want to explore a little locally on bike paths.

Prefer two people together. One bedroom, (2x single or double bed) & one bathroom available for Helpxers. Definitely NON smokers.
