Hi thanks for visiting.
Next vacancy December 17 2019

This idyllic 6 hectare hobby farm is located along a creek valley in the foothills of the Dandenong ranges.
Along the creek border is a flora and fauna reserve of more than 100 hectares full of wildlife, complete with walking trails, all accessible from the farm.
Kangaroos and wombats visit every day as do a myriad of native birds such as cockatoos and parrots.
Volunteers can help 5 hours per day, 5 days per week, in a range of tasks including domestic duties, animal care (horses and dogs) and farm work. Contributing to the daily chores of meal preparation, cleaning up after meals is in addition to the farm work. Think of it as being part of the family where you participate and share the chores.
The reward is the special Aussie experience that is on offer. Unique Australian wildlife in a completely natural setting, a warm cosy home and all only an hour and a half from Melbourne by train.
Learn about farm tasks like fencing, organic gardening, horse care etc.
The property is 10km from the nearest town and train line. If I am going into town on weekends I am happy to provide transport to and from or if you have other travel needs Taxis, Uber or even a mountain bike are available.
I am a well travelled person, interested in different cultures, and lead a fit, active life. I participate in long distance running, horse riding, kayaking, hiking, dancing, fishing and other sports regularly.
If you are hard working, reliable and looking for a rural Australian experience this could be for you.
