We have a beautiful 40 acre horse agistment property, veggie garden & fruit trees and approx. 5 acres bush. 3 min drive to surf beach, bay beach & Inverloch town or 10 min drive to Wonthaggi, a larger town. Push bikes available. We are very interested in living a sustainable lifestyle and hope that our WWOOFers are also interested in living sustainably and learning, and sharing knowledge of this. There are almost always wallabies at our farm and if you are lucky you may see kangaroos, echidnas, wombats & occasional koalas. Volunteering may include harvesting, food collection, composting, mulching, hay carting, weeding, fencing, planting, food preservation.  Sometimes there is some work caring for horses: often all the work is in the garden and paddock maintenance, as the horses are mainly looked after by their owners. Accommodation for up to 3 in our home, although we usually prefer 2. Shared meals, cook together. We eat a healthy, sustainable diet.  Bron is vegan and while Ray eats most foods, many meals are vegan or vegetarian.  Vegetarians & vegans catered for.  No children, no smoking, all stays negotiable on application. Please let us know your available dates when you apply and the length of time that you would like to WWOOF here. (1 to 2 weeks preferred).

I am currently in a gap year which I would like to be able to share as follows: a part where I work (currently done, by managing a project in favor of the integration of refugees) and, on the other hand, going to discovery of the world, of cultures, of encounters. After putting this project aside because of the context that we all know, I think it's time to take the plunge and go to the school of life, to gain maturity, in humanity. The WWOOFing seems to associate all that what I am looking for: discovery, sharing, meeting, proximity to nature.

We live on an old pastoral farm in SA. Our farm was established in 1850 by German settlers. The land has been used for grazing and growing wheat. We are working to restore the land essentially to use for growing native seeds, grape vines, a fruit orchard and vegetables. We also live on a river which we are currently regenerating with local native plants. We have a range of animals: 2 x Maremma sheep dogs Chickens Pig 2 parrots

I want to do WWOOFing this summer for several reasons. But before giving these reasons, I prefer to describe the context. I met a boy in my student days who will be doing a double degree in Brisbane next year for a year. Despite the astronomical ecological footprint of flying such a trip and the guilt that comes with it, I tell myself that the opportunity to discover such a country and its culture will not come again soon. And this is without taking into account that I am obliged to do a 9-week period abroad to validate my degree. This is where WWOOFing comes in. Indeed, it is for me a way to get closer to the Australian culture, or at least a small part of it, by working and living with locals. Moreover, being confined to a very theoretical life with my studies, it would allow me to satisfy my desire to "put my hand to the wheel" and, what's more, in a sector that interests me. Indeed, I have a call to reconnect with nature and food: being a vegetarian myself and informed a bit, I realise the importance of agriculture and its balance with nature. Finally, I wish to work in order to keep myself busy and useful to this cause while remaining close to my lover for a few more weeks before our physical separation for a year.

Helm’s Deep is a terraced suburban block overlooking the Gippsland Lakes. We are renovating our home and garden to be more energy-efficient and sustainable. We are learning and incorporating permaculture principles as we gain more knowledge. The focus this year is food forests, berry growing, and beekeeping. We are also creating shaded outdoor living areas. We share our life with two Border Collies. We also have chickens. Our garden leads to a walking track along the lake and the township is a very easy 20 minute walk.

I really love animals and being outside and that is one reason why I chose WWOOF for my year abroad. Another aspect is that I would like to learn new skills in terms of animal caring (or sustainable farming) and would like to be part of the team/ family where I stay and of their daily life instead of travelling and working alone.

Our passion is travelling, and we enjoy meeting new and interesting people around the world, and we already spent time in Australia both working and travelling. It was an exciting time in an impressive country we made many valuable acquaintances while there. Many years later, we would now like to share the positive experience with our kids and introduce them to Australia’s nature and the Aussie lifestyle. We are a hands-on young family, and we love skilled manual work. My wife and I, we both grew up in a working-class-family. For our work-life-balance, we spend a lot of time in our own forest or on our neighbour’s farm. We would enjoy having a break from our daily life in office and spend some quality time with hands-on physical work for/with you.   Furthermore, improving our English will be a positive side effect of joining WWOOF. Especially for our kids who started studying English at school last summer.   Joining WWOOF gives us the unique opportunity to combine both our favourite work activities and making a wonderful and exciting experience as a family Down-Under and in nature.

I was WWOOFing before in Sweden and I had such a good time and learned so much about myself, farming and Sweden and Swedish people: I just LOVED it! I really like nature (my holidays are always outdoor: hiking, biking, camping, canoeing...) and I like animals and plants and I like when you look at a field in the morning and in the evening and you literally can see what you've done the day! I really hope to learn a lot about farming in Australia and Australia and its people and its way of live (and I'm looking forward to improve my spoken English). In Sweden I worked with sheep, meat cows, milking cows, on vegetable fields (a lot of weeding as you can imagine), in a glass house with tomatoes and cucumbers, in a little cafe and shop on the farm, painting houses in the typically red and white colours, making cheese, and so on and so on...

My main objective in wwoofing is to discover a new country and a new culture. Then, helping you, while learning a new way of working will be an additional satisfaction. Finally, one of my objectives for this trip is to improve my English level, I count on you to help me progress. So, WWOOFing is an opportunity: it would allow me to discover a new culture, meet new people and share unforgettable human adventures, which is very important for me. Moreover, English is an important professional criterion, to improve myself is an objective, a total immersion in an Anglo-Saxon country is the ideal, I will be ready to make the necessary efforts to achieve this, while listening to your advice. I am and would be invested a maximum to learn by your side. For me, exchanging is a chance for many reasons, it can only be beneficial for both parties.

I've been working. with permaculture professionally all over the world, and have just returned this year after 31 years living overseas (mostly India and various parts of Europe). Having designed for so many others, finally it's time again to design our own place (my wife Francesca is an Italian agronomist), and build another house (the old one is in the rainforest we planted and in need of restoration as a guest house. We're planting an extensive food forest of hugely diverse species, to add to what remains of the original forest garden, as well as extensive vegetable gardens for our own kitchen, for friends and guests. This whole land, shared with two others, is a remarkable arboretum of mainly Australian rainforest species, and there are kilometres of footpaths all over the land, giving access to most of the most beautiful parts of it. One boundary is over a kilometre of stunning rainforest creek, there is a large pond on the land, and the views of the world heritage national parks and caldera of the ancient volcano are spectacular. We eat very well, having an international cooking capacity; we are not extreme, but cook only vegetarian food generally. Currently I'm beginning to design and implement a beautiful large (185acre) nearby property, focusing on functional integration of water management, cabinet and structural timbers, rotational grazing, food forest, small cropping and biodiversity. This is a long-term project.

We are on 20 acres of pasture and a beautiful rainforest gully which we are regenerating. We have horses, a miniature pony, chickens and a dog. We are 3 adults in the family. We have inherited permaculture features, plants and trees and want to do more. We are undertaking regenerative farming to improve the pasture and capture water. We are 15 minutes from the Sydney-Newcastle railway and back onto a native conservation area with many delightful bushwalks. There is an abundance of birds and wildlife. We have a spare, very comfortable double room in an annexe to a simple country house.
