We run a wholesale indigenous plant nursery set on a beautiful 50 acre bush block 10 min drive from the 90 mile beach. We are an easy going family, we have 2 young boys (4 and 2 years old - so, if you don't like kids, please do not apply) and three slightly crazy but friendly dogs living in a peaceful place with many native animals.
We have only one spare bedroom; it has a queen size bed, so ideal for couples or a single person stay. You also have your own bathroom and toilet.
We live in a comfortable house, where you'll have privacy and space, but you are welcome to join us in the living room whenever you like, to have meals, or socialise. We have lots of movies, video games, musical instruments and artistic endeavors to enjoy. Mobile reception is available.
Most of the work is generally nursery related - transplanting plants, sorting and general maintenance, but occasionally, some household duties too.
You'll be asked to work 4-5 hours a day in exchange for main meals and accommodation. Work time is flexible, so you can pursue your sightseeing adventure of Australia at a time more suited to you.
Hayley is a wonderful cook and all diets are welcome, just make sure you let us know what you can't eat (allergies etc).

We live 200km east of Melbourne, about 20 minutes south of Sale. You can catch a train or bus to Sale station, where we'll pick you up. For information, look up V/Line Trains and look for the Bairnsdale Line.

Looking forward to meeting you all!!

Simon and Hayley
