**May 2018 update!** We have started work renovating a 100 year old house in the next town from us. (there's a photo below) We will be painting, installing a new kitchen and bathroom, laying floorboards and tiles and getting the garden looking beautiful. It's a wonderful little property, we are very excited about it, and would love it if anyone with some skills in the above were able to help. Otherwise we always have plenty of projects and jobs to do at home. At the moment we are pruning fruit trees, preserving apples and preparing the garden for the coming winter. The weather is still beautiful, our favourite time of year. We hope to hear from you!

We are nestled in a beautiful valley, in the rolling hills of South Gippsland, nurturing our land, animals and family in our little paradise. We love having Helpers for the stories shared, for the fun we have here and sight-seeing, and for the helpful hands to get a variety of tasks done. On our 3 acres we have alpacas, very tame sheep, chickens & ducks, a large orchard and vegie garden. We love eating fresh, local produce, and we sell our excess and also delicious home-baked sourdough bread to a local food co-op close by. Our children are 7 & 5 and get such a wonderful education meeting people from all over the world. Koalas frequent our place, along with a variety of other birds & wildlife. Accom for 2 in a separate building with bathroom & kitchen. Shared meals, mixed diet. Children b.a. No smoking. Initial stay 7 days, then neg.

Apart from help around the farm we can do with help in the household at times too. The type of tasks you can help with, depend on your interests, abilities, and our needs. Work times will vary depending on weather and other circumstances. Usually you would work for about 6 hours 4 or 5 days in one week and then have 2 or 3 days off. It will average about 4 hours a day. In very hot weather or if it's physically hard work hours will be shorter.

Once a week we will take you for a sightseeing/outing to some wonderful places in our area. Wilsons Promontory is one option and one of the most beautiful National Parks in Australia (see second last photo). The beach is about 25 minutes from us.
