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, only Australian helpers were able to visit us the last 2 years. Local Australian helpers, unable to go overseas were filling the gap which was a very nice experience as we used to have overseas helpers only before. And for the first time in years, we had times without helpers at all.With the borders open again this has changed and we are back to being booked 3 to 4 months in advance with mostly long-term guests.This should not deter you to ask anyway as booked helpers sometimes cancel their spot. 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 start your journey inward to grow and get to know yourself and your interaction with others. Deep discussions are possible in a relaxed atmosphere. Be creative with great light, & scenery for painting and photography, writing, music and getting 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 Finnish Sauna and helpers are welcome to join. A great place to open up, listen to yourself and have meaningful discussions. 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.

I joined WWOOF in 2019 when I volontureed in California for 1 month and then in 2020 for 3 weeks near München in Germany. I’ve been dreaming to come to Australia ever since I was 15. Since I now have some time for myself, I've decided to finally discover this wonderful country !

It was always clear for us to take a gap year after school and before studying. After some research we´ve discovered WWOOF! It´s an unique way to discover Australia from an inside perspective – always in contact with locals. Additionally, we want to improve our English skills, meet new people and explore a new way of living in an interesting culture which is very different to the German one. Nowadays the majority of groceries are treated with pesticides and genetic engineering. So it´s very important for us to support organic methods. In general, we´re interested in learning about your working methods and achieving new skills. Especially working on farms makes it possible to stay active in nature. We both are pet owners so we enjoy spending time with animals and taking care of them. Furthermore we hope we´ll develop ourselves in new situations, far away from home, and collect memories that will stay in our head forever!

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.

I really like nature and animals and l am interested in learning about life on Australian Organic & Permaculture farms and learning about growing and producing organically. That is why I decided to join WWOOF.

The House of the Rising Sun. Be the first to watch and wake up to the sunrise in Australia, perched on top of a mountain on the most eastern part of Australia, at the end of a valley, in a secret, giant forest overlooking the vast, majestic Pacific Ocean, is a place called Kinabalu. Many guests & travellers guests started to call it The Treehouse - a name that has now stuck. This is a private conservation park in principle with much work to do, including gardening, tree planting & environmental repair work. Surrounded by a rainforest sanctuary & nature reserve, you can take walks into old growth forest & swim in the waterfalls, so make sure you bring your walking shoes. It has been quite an achievement, building this over the last 11 years. I am presently focused on the garden. Come and plant some herbs if you have a green thumb. See you at The Treehouse - an experience you'll never forget!

We hope to achive some experiences about the Australian culture, the nature, the language or just the daily life of the Australians. Also we are very exited to see a completly diffrent way of life, on the other side of the world. The crucial point to help other families there so that we can take part in their lives is very important for us. Because everyone can benefit from it and on top of this we can exchange together. Finally this made us decide for WWOOFing.

We joined WWOOF because we are very interested in the organic agriculture and cultivation worldwide. After finishing our studies, we'd love to meet new people with a similar mindset and get new insights of working on different organic farms. We're also hoping to get inspired for future jobs/ living situations!

Really interested in learning more about how to grow food, I've tried my hand at starting a garden and was always interested in working on a larger farm for a bit. WWOOF also seems like a great way to meet people from all different walks of life and I'd love to hear about people's journeys

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.

I have known and appreciated organic farming since my youth. I like being in nature and like work where you can see what you have achieved. A wonderful contrast to working in the office. When I first heard about WWOOF, I immediately knew that I wanted to do just that.

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.

We hope to not only improve our language and working skills but also to get insights into the Australian culture and way of living at the same time. Another reason for our decision is our ambition to learn about the agricultural differences in Australia compared to Germany and the interesting flora and fauna in your beautiful country.

I got to know WWOOF through a friend who once worked on a farm in Canada. She was very enthusiastic. I like the idea of doing something different from my job and broadening my horizons. I like animals and working in the garden. I like to be outside and am not afraid of work. I hope to get to know real life in Australia through WWOOF and live with the host family for a longer time.

We're looking forward to all the opportunities WWOOF creates for so many. Besides the obvious like getting to know the locals and the countryside we'd like to learn and experience new things while we're here. Even if it's fruit picking, cleaning windows or gardening.
