Our place is in a stunning setting amongst the native bush and wildlife of the Strathbogie ranges. It's a great space to relax, explore, and there's often a fun local event to attend.

We are a family of 2 adults and 2 kids (9 and 10 years old). We have a large garden, grow a lot of veggies, have an orchard of over 100 trees (every type of fruit imaginable), bee hives and about 50 free range chickens. We are both teachers (music and art) and I play saxophone in several bands most weekends (afrobeat, lots of west and South African styles, jazz, funk, soul and more), so if you like good music and visiting Melbourne, this might be a good place for you.

We have a friendly dog and a cat, and lots of beautiful friends nearby, in Melbourne and all over. There are lots of nice spots nearby for swimming (Polly McQuinns waterhole and Gooram falls), walking, riding and adventures. 15 mins to lake Eildon and an hour to skiing at Mt Buller (bus stop a few kms down the road). 30 mins to either Mansfield, Euroa or Alexandra and 2 hours bus, train or drive to Melbourne. There are lots of kangaroos, wallabies, wombats, echidnas and koalas around our place. We are in the beautiful Strathbogie ranges (Ned Kelly country) with amazing views and stunning bushland.

We generally ask for a few hours work most days but if you prefer to put in a long day and have a few days off, that's good too. Duties may include planting, weeding, pruning, harvesting, mulching, feeding chickens, basic building/maintenance, collecting firewood, cooking, cleaning and more.

We have good mobile reception with Telstra, some with other providers. Accomodation in a comfortable powered caravan, camper trailer or even an old ambulance!
