Friends of us told us about WWOOF and we knew ‚we wanna try this!‘ As I wrote above: we love the nature and are super excited to learn new things. Both of us are not shy to do hard work or get dirty hands. We would also like to get to know Australia through locals and discover how they live and help out how they work.

I would love to continue to build my skills in gardening, permaculture and natural building, and meet interesting people along the way. I have spent some time volunteering in Ladakh on natural farming projects, and in Australia doing some natural building, and would love to explore more volunteering options that involve herb, flower and market gardens. I am also very keen to learn about beekeeping and cheesemaking.

We are looking to expand our knowledge, meet people, see new places and have a break. We have been working pretty long hours the last few years so before buying our own place we decided to go traveling a little and make sure we going down the right path by putting ourselves in different situations.

I am looking for an opportunity to incorporate mushroom growing techniques into current practices on a WWOOF farm. I can also help to build a mushroom farm and make excellent use of bi-products to build soil and increase organic matter and productivity. To this end I have created a series of designs to help accomplish this. I can create small structures very cheaply using aircrete technology that is extremely insulative, fire resistant and also vermin proof. I have also designed a water activation technology that will help to reduce water usage and soil water retention. This technology is excellent for producing high quality compost teas. My skills are in design and implementation of wholistic systems. I am looking for a long term position that would allow me to assist my host in the implementation of a productive enterprise or a system capable of sustaining a small community. I am of course very happy to help with day to day tasks. If any of this interests you I hope that I will hear from you soon

City/Town: Sarina
Farming Methods: Permaculture
Accommodation Type: Separate Building
We have a six acre property half way between Sarina and Sarina Beach which we purchased 14 years ago. The six acres was cleared with very little vegetation or trees when we purchased. We have created zones on our spray free property with over 200 different fruit trees, a rain forest and many other garden zones. We are now in the process of converting our house yard to a zone 1 with 18 grow beds and a large greenhouse to be more productive. We have a large flat that is fully self contained with all amenities adjacent to our home. We have 3 rain water tanks which supply the house and flat with filtered water. We are very fortunate to live in a community with many other permaculturists, which we come together on a fortnightly basis to swap produce, learn and share skills. Our property supports a large cross section of natural wildlife and we also have many bee hives for our Natural and pure honey supply. I use our home grown produce for our homesteading needs. Our property is on a hill with a wonderful view facing Mt Chelona hence our property is called Chelona View. We live 5kms from Sarina Beach, which is a picturesque walking and fishing beach. We are also close to Finch Hatton Gorge and Eungella National Park. Airlie Beach is only 3 hours drive north of Sarina.

Thank you for your interest in volunteering. We appreciate help, enjoy young people and having an excuse to visit the beautiful and interesting places Adelaide, the hills and the Fleurieu Peninsula in South Australia have to offer with them. Due to the corona virus all our booked overseas helpers had to cancel their flight to Australia. The first time in Years we might at times be without helpers at all. Some local Australian helpers, unable to go overseas are now filling the gap which is very nice as we used to have overseas helpers only before. Please read through all the text below and only apply if you think this is for you. We live on a 2 hectare property with the young Angas River running through. We have organic gardens with fruit trees, all sorts of berries, vegetable gardens with free roaming bantams, big layer hens, a Muscovy duck, flower beds, lawns as well as two goats on paddocks and a cute house cat. 1 of our 4 kids, Katharina, is living next door with her partner. Bernward is semi retired but still runs a sustainable architecture and building consultancy business part time from offices attached to the home. Barbara works at the local hospital. We have been accommodating helpers since 2011  through various help exchange sites. If you want a break from travelling in a non judgmental  friendly  family environment and you are open and self-motivated, this is the place for you. This is not an action or party place but rather a place to relax and get creative with great light, & scenery for painting and photography, write and get back to nature. A big woodworking workshop invites creativity. I enjoy teaching woodworking skills to our helpers with the option to learn how to fit out campervans and tiny houses. A couple of times a week we heat up our Sauna and helpers are welcome to join. Help is always needed in the garden & paddock, picking berries & apples, looking after animals, weed control, making firewood, compost, cleaning up sheds & around the place, sometimes on a sustainable building site. We live 45min by car from Adelaide, 45min from safe swimming beaches & 45min from the surf, so we are pretty central. Accommodation  for 2 in separate stone cottage & own room in the main building. All share in home cooked evening meal. Mixed diet. No smokers please. Longer stays (min 3 weeks) preferred after initial few days. Please contact us via email only.

Belted Galloway cattle farm in the southern highlands. We milk these cows, too - they love to be patted. We also raise chickens for breeding and eggs, have a Permaculture veggie garden, and have just planted hazelnut trees. We are at our next stage of bushfire recovery having completed fencing and felling some trees. There are many tasks still to do even though it has rained and looks green. We need to expand the permaculture areas, constant weeding, pruning fruit trees, planting bare rooted vines and transplanting fruit trees. We also maintain a small wildlife reserve on part of the farm and look at grasses to make sure that the wombats we co-exist with have enough to eat. Volunteer tasks include feeding chickens, tending veggie garden, moving cattle to strip graze, milking cows (in non drought situations), weeding, collecting firewood, composting & worm farming. Accomodation for 2 within our home. Shared meals, all cook together. Mixed diet. Vegetarians & vegans catered for. Children b.a. No smoking on property. Initial stay 12-14 days. Longer stays negotiable.

We moved in to this 100 acre property, situated between Pemberton and Northcliffe in the South West of Western Australia, at the end of 2018. It is surrounded by stunning karri forrest and on the crossing of the Bibbulmun walking trail and the Munda Biddi cycling trail. We have a productive home orchard and veggie gardens, as well as ponds and a lake with marron, the largest freshwater crayfish in the world and pretty tasty. We have cows, sheep, chickens, and a couple of worm farms. Also a very energetic young pomeranian dog, Rupert. Plenty of water is also a bonus in this country. In addition to our rammed earth house, there are also 4 holiday cottages on the property. Most of the time, our helpers can stay in one of the cottages if it is not during busy holiday times or long weekends. Otherwise, they stay in our house in the spare room. We have spare bikes for our helpers, so that they can go and explore this beautiful area.

Projects include:

During the winter months, David is busy planting lots of trees, so you will be able to help create a lasting benefit for the future. There are trees for fodder, shelter, fruit and some for longer term timber resource.

We are experimenting with regenerative farming and improving the soil with growing a diverse mix of grasses and making and applying compost teas to increase the subsoil life. Other ongoing projects:

Constructing and maintaining permaculture gardens and orchards, picking berries and fruit. Planting native flowering plants for the bees, propagating and seeding vegetables. 

Making compost and mulching the gardens. 

Woodworking projects, ranging from making greenhouse to re-fitting kitchens in the cottages.

Chopping firewood and collecting kindling.

We have a rural property, 18 acres. scattered gardens with fruit trees and vegetables. We have great accommodation with composting toilets, hot showers and laundry. We are both getting up there in years and would like some help while passing on years of experience.

Mowing, whipper-snipping etc. We have a large dam for swimming and a couple of boards to play around on. Nice and peaceful, plenty of wildlife, and a creek to explore. Any person interested must have own transport as we are 25k from town. We are interested in either a couple or singles. Oh and not be afraid or allergic to dogs as we have 3 Ridgebacks, all friendly.

I want to actively learn and enjoy different experiences and WWOOFing just seems like the perfect way to do that. My biggest passion is being in the garden, I have a small veggie patch at home which I tend to regularly and I get immense joy from. I would love to learn sustainable methods to farming, I want to experience a day in the lives of other people, I just want to LEARN!

I have thought about WWOOFing for over 25 years; I decided it was time. I am hoping to relocate from rural SA to Darwin for an academic year for the purpose of undertaking an Honours degree at CDU. The current rental crisis requires some "out of the box" thinking in terms of finding suitable accommodation in Darwin. I am hoping to find a suitable Host farm at which I can stay and work for part or all of 2022.

I was a WWOOFingchost on a 10 acre rainforest and bushland property north of Mackay Qld for nearly 10 years. It was one of the most wonderful, memorable experiences of my life. I got out of it as least as much as I put in - which was a LOT! We undertook revegetation projects, built a shack from mostly recycled materials, did loads of weed management, grew fruits, vegies and nuts organically and had an absolutely fantastic experience with our WWOOFers. I always said I'd love to do it myself and now I am. I can cook, clean, garden, follow instructions, respect your privacy, play scrabble and appreciate your place, pets and projects as much as you do. I'm currently deepening my yoga practice after 25 years of being a more casual fan. I love a chat but I also appreciate my own space/peace and quiet. I am travelling in a compact 4WD motorhome and left Qld in February 2021. Some power or water or use of an inside bathroom or laundry is always appreciated but not crucial. A little hut in the bush is always fun as I can spread out - but not too much! A spot to lay my yoga mat out is all I need. I do have a very cute, well behaved little dog but she has won hearts and changed opinions on dogs from one side of Australia to the other. Yes I realise that's a bit unusual. I've been doing a lot of house sitting and have great references to prove how housetrained and helpful we are. She is 10 years old and basically sleeps all day and night (in the moho). If you meet me or Daisy and don't think we are a good fit, we can just head on down the road. No worries! You won't be disappointed though. I love to learn and will be very happy to help you no matter how large, small or dirty the job. Plus I still have a lot of things I'd like to learn, so teach me and I'll really enjoy being a part of making YOUR dreams a reality. Having people in your home is a leap of faith and I've rarely been disappointed when the shoe was on the other foot. Give us a go.

We've spent almost six months fitting out our van because we love this way of travelling which allows freedom and close contact with nature. We also like the fact that living off-grid makes you realise the preciousness of energy and water resources and therefore makes you pay greater attention to your consumption. We've joined WWOOF because we strongly believe that changes need to come now regarding the environmental crisis and we want to learn skills that will help us become sustainable inhabitants of this planet, such as permaculture, organic and biodynamic farming. We are also very keen on learning natural building techniques. And if on top of this, we can have some friendly animals as roommates, that would be perfect !
