SORRY NOT AVAILABLE UNTIL SEPTEMBER 2020

We haven't got many jobs currently, but you are welcome to ask anyway and if we can, we will offer you a place.
After spending a year helpxing in Europe in 2012, we are home in NZ and ready to be a host for like minded travelers. We are interested in other cultures and will be happy to share knowledge of our country too. We believe it must be a good experience for all parties.

We are not on a big property or farm, however we always seem to have some jobs to do. Depending on your interests and abilities we have lots of jobs to choose from;
* gardening - plenty
* chopping firewood
* handyman jobs - various building skills would be helpful
* painting - when the weather is favorable
* you are welcome to cook as well
Daily hours of work will be somewhere between 4 -5 hours. We are happy to negotiate longer days giving you complete days off to explore our region - we can discuss this when you arrive.

Our children have both grow... more inside

Thanks Helpxers for having a look at our profile.

First, before we begin, please note that we are only open to Helpxers this year for November-June.

We have a lot to do on our property so happy to have you join us in the next month or so.

Our priorities this year are to:
(a) complete some building renovation - so would love to find some helpers with some experience in carpentry and/or plumbing (they don't need to be qualified), (b) build a brick pizza oven by the newly expanded pond on our property. For these kind of projects, we need helpers who are fit and able and willing to do some nice, hard work along side the hosts! We've also decided, given the nature of the work this year to accept volunteers who are 20 years or older.

For lots of info on Timber Trail Centre have a look at www.timbertrailcentre.com, and for info on adventures to be had in our region, check out our blogs on that site.

Hi,
we are needing a couple of helpers for a few days. We live 1/2 an hour from the famous Tongariro Alpine Crossing.
We are a family of 4, with 2 busy children aged 12 & 8, we live 10 minutes north of Turangi and 20 mins south of Taupo, on a 1/4 acre section with our friendly dog & cat.

We would love to offer our new insulated sleepout and small dinning area with fridge, hotplate, jug & toaster. Both are situated next to a bathroom that has a toilet, shower, washing machine & sink. You will have to share the areas with other travellers as we have campermate guests staying in their motorhomes or camping.

We are needing some help with gardening, lawn mowing, removing scrub & branches, clearing weeds.(It would be ideal if you are able to use a scrub bar to clear some land or a weed eater). Please be aware that most of our work will be outside in any weather but we can provide raincoats and gumboots if needed. We do have some inside jobs like sewing, some general cleaning a... more inside

We welcome your enquiry as we enjoy having helpers to stay.

Lake Taupo is a beautiful place with so many activities to experience. We can help you plan your Tongariro Crossing trip and all the other outdoor activities.

If you are here on a weekend you will help us sell our produce at the Saturday Market.

We need help with our hydroponic business, gardening, housework, and all sorts of other chores indoors and outdoors.

Occasionally there is heavy stuff to carry so you need to be okay with that.

For each night you stay we would like you to give us 4 hours work. This will be whole days and some half days.

When you work for half a day, you will work in the morning and have the rest of the day off.

We will let you know all the things there are to see and do around Taupo.

We provide all your evening meals and breakfast.

We supply your lunch on the days you are working.

Our pets include a little dog and cats so if you do not like animals or have allergies,... more inside

Je suis francaise et me suis installée en Nouvelle-Zélande il y a 15 ans, où j'ai rencontré mon mari Jérôme (français aussi!). Nous avons deux charmantes filles appelées Anouk (12 ans) et Janette (10 ans). Nous avons la passion pour l'art, la nature et le voyage en dehors des sentiers battus a la rencontre des gens de différentes cultures. Nous aimons la vraie nourriture, surtout celle qui vient directement de notre jardin bio cultivé avec beaucoup de passion! Jerome aime la nature et travaille pour le "Department of Conservation". IL réhabilite la population de kiwis dans notre forêt locale, en bordure de notre petit village d’Owhango.
C'est ici que nous avons construit notre maison ecologique il y a 7 ans et l'avons conçue pour être chaleureuse et accueillante. Nous avons divers projets en cours autour de la propriété et du jardin et souhaitons bien progresser dans les mois à venir. Par conséquent, nous aimerions avoir des "collaborateurs" enthousiastes avec lesquels nous pourro... more inside

Lifestyle block situated 15ks from Taupo township, with extensive planted grounds and garden. We are a retired couple who now require assistance keeping our large property in order. We are in a very peaceful country location with stunning views overlooking Lake Taupo and the mountains of the Tongariro National Park. We have travelled extensively overseas and often have international guests, as we enjoy hosting and talking to people from other countries.
Our preference is for mature, fit young people who are good workers and prepare to work for 4 hours each morning in return for good accommodation and hearty
meals. As our property is in the country, a car is necessary.
We are looking for helpers for 4 days for gardening, maintenance and window cleaning

I live in my family villa and have a newborn baby girl. i am trying to make a bit more time off the farm, so i can spend more time with my girl and her mum, who live in town.

i have an extensive travel background, having been shearing sheep in spain, norway etc for over 18 years. i have been to 160 odd countries, so i am very keen to help out travelers and give them great experiences, like people did for me.

located in the central plateau, just north of national park. we are close to the Whanganui river and the mountains, and one property is on the national cycle way. great fishing and hunting!

This place is spread over 4 different properties, predominantly deer with some cattle and sheep. no dairy herd! lots of pets! chickens, pigs, goats etc. and a dog.

Koruridge is situated in the beautiful Mapara Valley.
Just 14km from Taupo centre.
Located just 2.5km from my favourite place on the shores of the Great Lake - Whakaipo Bay.
I own and run a boarding kennel facility and breed & show Rhodesian Ridgebacks.
I'm young at heart with a lively character :-)

I require help in a few areas from helping in the kennels, spraying weeds, firewood, household chores and general maintenance.
Hours are generally 8am until 12.30 (4.5hrs a day)
If your wanting to do the Tongariro Crossing then you can do a full day to get a full day to do the crossing and your meals.

In return I offer 3 meals a day.
Cereals, toast for breakfast, generally a sandwich, toasted sandwich with crisps, fruit for lunch and a cooked meal at dinner.

I’m a well travelled host having back packed around the World in my younger days & visited numerous countries for snowboarding.

Look forward to hearing from enthusiastic people.
