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.

I've just fledged my youngest child and I'm up for new adventures. WWOOF seems like a safe and fun way to be a solo traveler. As I age, I am becoming more interested in sustainability in all it's guises - food, housing, internal wellbeing. I know very little about gardening and permaculture, but I'd like to learn more. During this year of pandemic I've been delighted to grow veggies in my urban back garden. It's been a lovely creative outlet to make soup from my own ingredients. What do I hope to achieve by WWOOFing? Such an interesting question. I don't know and I'm leaning in to the discomfort of not knowing. At the very least, connection to new folk and new ideas with the opportunity to exchange my skills and ideas.

Virtue Farm is a 33 acre property overlooking Fraser Island, and includes 27 acres of remnant forest which will never be developed. The forest is an oasis for bird life and other animals and is great for walking.  We are 10 minutes from Hervey Bay and 10 minutes from the Fraser Island Barge that leaves from River Heads.  We have an existing permaculture garden and are upscaling to small farm size. Our house block is 1.5 acres and backs on to the farm land.  We are in the beginning stages of becoming a commercially viable farm, so you will be helping to establish our property. We ask for five hours of work per day per person, depending upon the type of work and we can be very flexible in this regard. This could include farm work, vegetable patch work, caring for the chooks, moving small saplings, rock picking, planting, mulching, weeding, harvesting, fencing, land clearing and chopping wood  and general home maintenance. If you have any specific skill base or interest we are open to negotiation. In return, we will supply an evening meal shared with us and you can prepare your own breakfasts and lunch from what we supply. Accommodation  for 4 in a granny flat downstairs, we have 1 room with two king single beds - can be joined to make a king, 1 room with a queen size bed. We can accommodate singles and couples. Mixed diet and a mix of vegetarian and meat based meals.  Whilst we have some capacity to cater for vegans, we will have to learn from you to assist us to cater for your needs and are willing to do so within limits. Internet access is available close to the house. Virtue Farm acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of the land, the Butchulla people, where we work and live, and recognise their continuing connection to land, water and community. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging. While you are here, you should make time to go to Fraser Island. We are very flexible and happy to work around dates that you can access which are cheaper for you. Many of our volunteers have found great deals on the “Book Me” website. You would be welcome to leave your property here where it would be safe if you do choose to visit. Additionally, we strongly suggest that you plan for at least a one night overnight stay on Fraser Island; many of our volunteers have done the day tour and loved it, but all say they wished they’d stayed for longer as they felt like they only had a glimpse and not enough time to experience all it has to offer. Those people who stayed for two or three nights seem to have had the best experiences. We have some back packs and camping gear for volunteers to use (for a small fee to cover wear and tear) if they want to do the longer treks and hikes on Fraser Island. We are also aware that some companies do dual booking between the Whit Sundays and Fraser Island and they have been both popular and economical. As long as you book your trip to Fraser Island from Hervey Bay we are happy to drive you to where you need to be. If you book from Rainbow Beach, then you will have to arrange your own transport as it is about an hour and a half away. We have two bicycles and helmets which we are happy to share so you can spend a day or afternoon in Hervey Bay exploring and experiencing all that our fabulous community has to offer. There is no public transport to our home, but we are happy to drive into Hervey Bay so you can see our beautiful beaches, piers, parks and lifestyle. There are some lovely walks in the remnant forest on our block and it is always lovely to watch the kangaroos that visit daily. The volunteers that we have had so far have enjoyed their time with us and have been happy to join in with our family and extended family. You will stay in the two bedroom flat downstairs, with its own bathroom, kitchenette with microwave, fridge, toaster and kettle , dining area and lounge room. We have one room with a queen sized bed and one with two king singles. There is a TV, DVD player and some board games, card, paints and mindful colouring books. We also have heaps of Earth Garden magazines and similar to browse.

First joined in 2018 then did a spell on Workaway for a year overseas. Great experiences all round. I've also used couchsurfing dot com and found it amazing the people you can meet and the kind of world we live in where all these things are possible. I've always volunteered since childhood so this is just a continuation of that idea about working together and giving what we can.

Hi, We live in a beautiful part of the world and especially now with this Covid stuff it is a very safe place to live with all the same freedoms without Gov intervention. We are always looking for WWOOFers but at the moment we are after someone or a couple who want to live here permanently. We offer free accomadation and food for someone willing to work in exchange. It would suit someone who is sick of the City and just wants to get back to the basics and live a simple healthy lifestyle. You must be committed to natural food and growing and have good honest work and sharing ethics. It is also ideal for someone who hasnt the money but wants to live on a farm. I am building a new timber bungalow in the rain forrest right now for this person as we have our own saw mill and I am a builder who loves wood work and furniture making etc. Please give us a call and we can have a chat about this .

My property has been different since 4th January last year when a savage bushfire wiped out every square cm of its 175 acres. I always wondered whether established rainforest would burn easily, and I learned that if the fire is hot enough, the inherent damp in the environment makes virtually no difference to how combustible it is. It is still beautiful with a new rugged kind of beauty - the beauty of a survivor. It is largely ancient rock formations, and you can see the rock so much more now that it isn't draped in greenery. It has been amazing to see how quickly life has sprung back, though, as green sprouts emerge and take off from every nook and cranny. Here as a WWOOFer you can experience a pioneering lifestyle, living simply, very simply, without power and with variable phone and internet access. Sleep in your own tent if it has sewn-in floor, or in basic safe shelter provided and help develop a fabulous rainforest property on which I plan to establish accommodation for homeless young people. Tasks? You name it . . . previous helpers have gained skills in natural building (both earth building and construction with timber-in-the-round and dressed timber), how to fell and bark trees, how to build a professional looking deck using felled timber for the structure - also sheds, tank stands etc. Help to create our Cob buildings - currently in the planning stage. Stay a while and learn how to build a Cob house!  It's not as hard as you think. Previously we were developing an organic garden following permaculture principles, however that infrastructure was lost in the fire and so now we are starting all over again. For the time being, the emphasis is on getting infrastructure rebuilt, so there is accommodation and water available for a start. Most of my WWOOFers have had little or no prior knowledge about building, and they have come away with good knowledge and skills in a matter of days or weeks. I'm happy to say they have frequently commented on what a great experience it was. I look forward to hearing from energetic, willing helpers.

I hope to contribute to sustainable projects, exchange knowledge and ideas, and learn a lot in the process! The WWOOFing community shares common morals to I; respecting our land and resources, living sustainably and energy aware as well as being open-minded and respectful to each other. I hope to meet more likeminded people and gain valuable experiences and friendships.

I hope that WWOOF will connect me with people living the lifestyle I seek to live. I want to understand how people and community's can thrive whilst supporting the natural systems that they rely on. I'm seeking first hand experience with like minded people who have already commenced their journey of sustainability. I believe that living and working with such people will provide a great insight into what to expect and how to better create environmental balance. Human connection is another reason why I have chosen to WWOOF. I love meeting people, sharing stories, experiences and knowledge. I hope to find out more about the people living this lifestyle and the journeys that have taken them to running these projects. Lastly, I hope to experience a variety of environments and practices. I know I want to create a life of balance with our natural systems, however the where and how remains a mystery. I hope that WWOOFing will provide me with the chance to experience a wide range of methods and regions.

Organic-certified and biodynamic-certified hazelnut farm just five minutes outside of Sheffield, Tasmania. We welcome WWOOFers (single or couple) all year round, but particularly during our harvest period (mid-March to end of April). We especially welcome people who have an enthusiasm for growing things and/or caring for animals. If you also have experience that is a great bonus! (but not necessary). Our family consists of Greg and Elizabeth, a friendly but sometimes jumpy big dog, three cats, and about 25 cows. The farm is peaceful and picturesque, and has wonderful mountain views.

If you truly love dogs & cats & are willing to work hard to make them happy, you've come to the right place! Our 100 acre of natural canine adventure & aquatic park has waterfalls, kangaroos, koalas and a picturesque lilly-filled lake. We operate a busy pet motel and also have a rescue shelter where street-dogs, cats & other animals are cared for until they are re-homed. We are on the train line a few hours north of Sydney or 1 hour bus ride south of Port Macquarie. 30 mins to the surf beach. Due to the amount of dog training you will receive, we have a four week minimum stay.   Preference will be given to those who can stay longer and if you prove to be a great worker, you may be offered longer term paid work. As we also have a farm with sheep & cattle, we occasionally have a position available for second year visas. Your accommodation is a comfortable room in our beautiful modern second home, usually with another WWOOFer. You would have your own toilet for yourself. This home has a modern kitchen, two bedrooms, two toilets living area and at least one furry dog to keep you company at night! No animal experience necessary - a true love of dogs, a sense of safety and responsibility and a willingness to learn will get you through. You need to be fit and strong. Good cooks are always welcome! Please email contact details of your former supervisors or hosts for references – fine if they are overseas.

Last year I booked a one way ticket overseas, alas that dream did not come true so here I am following a different path with just as many cool options. I want to travel around to gain experience on the land, learn new skills and see different lifestyles and landscapes - I am pretty keen to see where this journey could lead. Some goals I have are to read more books, pat a lot of cows/work with animals and drive a tractor.
