  • A other German engineer had recommended this Plattform to get in touch with the locals. He sad: if you want to work longer and can give a hard hand then go with wwoof. So, I’m use to it to trust my feelings after a conversation. It was a very nice guy and here I am. I would love to prof myself and my abilities. And as I sad: Stay a bit longer on one area and I really like to give a hand where it’s needed. Looking forward to hear from you.

We joined WWOOF because it seems like an amazing way to learn about organic farming practices, give back to the land, and extend our travels. We both live a vegan lifestyle and enjoy eating locally and sustainably. We would love the opportunity to get a hands on experience and learn about food practices, where our food is coming from and how organics are farmed in beautiful Australia. We are looking to have fun while working hard to earn what we eat.

For our 12 month van trip it seems like a great way to learn some practical skills and see some different ways of doing things that maybe we could incorporate into our own little garden at home. We would love to start keeping bees and chooks in our yard to start 'closing the loop' in our backyard.

I joined WWOOF because I've tried one way of living and I want to try something new now. I feel a very strong urge to experience a different way of living. I want to experience working on farms. I sometimes help a friend of mine at his property doing odd jobs and that made me realise that I enjoy working outside in nature and now I would like to do it more and learn skills required to work at farms. And while doing that, meet and connect with different people. Another reason is that, even though I've been living in Australia for a while, I still feel like I haven't seen it at all. I want to travel around this country and live in different places and have different experiences altogether.

I was talking with my cousin about the felling I was having about traveling and she told me the name of this page. Searching on internet and looking some reviews I realise this is exactly for I'm looking for. I thing this will be an incredible experience for me to meet people and learn about the farm work.

I prefer to work while doing Wwoofing because I want to be integrated in the heart of the Australian way of life, I want to exchange my knowledge, to acquire many skills concerning the work in the farm. I know it can be very varied and that's what interests me.

We live on 280 acres, with 1 of 2 sons & small dog, nestled under the highest peaks of the Grampians National Park, 20 kms south of Halls Gap. We operate the Grampians Paradise Camping & Caravan Parkland, a beautiful, small camping ground with shady trees, gardens, small lake & wetlands. Native birds, animals & frogs abound. Bright starry skies. Work with us on environmental projects, fencing, gardening, maintenance, personal vegie garden and fruit orchard, firewood collection, ground works, jobs about the camping ground, occasional building projects (Aidan is very into Traditonal Timber Framing and nearly always has a project on the go). Caravan accom for 1-2 people with own cooking facilities and the use of the camp kitchen and amenities in the camping ground. Require own bedding. Campground amenities building has bathrooms and  laundry. No children. Some independent cooking and possibly some shared meals with family. Prefer No Smoking, and No Smoking Indoors under any circumstance. Can pick up from public transport at Pomonal (bus  Tues, Fri and Sun), Ararat, Stawell or Halls Gap (V Line Services - train and bus). See photos on our website. PLEASE NOTE: we have chemically sensitive family members, so will ask that no perfumes/fragranced products or scented washing powders, deodorants or shampoos are used before coming into our home. We are happy to provide unscented laundry powder, shampoo & soap as well as any advice.  Please note that some essential oils are okay, but please speak with us before using them. Having transport is a huge advantage in this location as there is no immediate public transport, and many of the bushwalks in the Grampians require a trip in the car to access start points. Having said that the new Grampians Peaks Trail, a 13 day trek through the Grampians will be passing within walking distance of our property, so at some time in the future there will be great access to this incredible walk - we will upate this note once they open the Redman Bluff section of the Peaks Trail.

Hi and thank you for reading our profile.  Our beautiful cattle farm is set in the picturesque Eurobodalla Shire. We raise Angus/Friesian cows, our herd usually runs at about 35 cows, heifers and steers.  We have one lovely Limousine bull who loves our girls and gives us beautiful calves usually in July/August if we get the timing right!  We use a strip feeding method allowing the cows to graze in a given area for a day or two before moving them into the next "strip".  This is done using electric tape and secure insulated poles for the tape to pass through once knocked into the ground.  Not an arduous task at all and all part of stopping the paddocks from being trampled.  We routinely inject our herd for intestinal worms etc. to keep them comfortable and prevent disease; we also drench them topically for lice.  We have a stock yard, pens, gates and a cattle crush to enable safe handling when performing these tasks. We have approximately 30 free range chooks and a rooster which we feed twice daily with top shelf grain and left over vegetable and fruit scraps.  Eggs are collected daily of course from their nesting boxes in their chicken coop and sold to local friends.  The chooks have a very large area in which to peck and scratch, including a 3 tier orchard of fruit and citrus. We grow as many vegetables as we can in our netted 3 tier vegetable garden using cow, chicken and horse manure for fertiliser.  We have a small compost heap but are in the process of purchasing materials to build a 3 bay compost area, sufficient for the tractor to turn the compost regularly.  We have many tanks for rain water that is utilised on the gardens and for washing and showering.  We also have a bore which retrieves mineral water from the aquifer; this is used to pump water into the cattle troughs and don't they love it.  We have a very large solar array on two roofs from which we draw our electricity although we do not rely solely on this for our energy needs - so there is always electricity even if the sun isn't shining. Our property is bordered on one side by the Tuross River and yes we have a swimming hole and sandy beach to enjoy. Our two beautiful quarter horses Kingsley and Jet are free to roam in their own paddock, complete with water trough, stables (under construction as we speak).  They are ridden by both Rob and I and are frequent visitors at the gate, begging a few pieces of liquorice, a carrot and apple. I am a passionate gardener and have the daily walk around all the garden beds with either a cup of tea or glass of wine in hand to inspect for bugs, weeds etc.  depending on the time of day.
