I did a few experiences as a wwoofer in the south-west of Western Australia, in the south-east of Queensland and in Tasmania. I enjoyed meeting nice hosts, sharing their way of life and learning more about the Australian culture. I liked being closer to nature, to the wildlife and taking care of farm animals.
However, some hosts regard wwoofers as a cheap labour force for weeding. This job is part of “organic gardening”, of course. But it shouldn’t be the main activity on the property. Actually, few hosts have time to teach their wwoofers new skills such as permaculture principles or biodynamic practices and techniques.
I advise “Willing Workers On Organic Farms” to have their own car, it is much more convenient to visit the surroundings on your days off and to go to a new place. Find travel companions and share the costs of driving a car. Read hosts’ profiles carefully before contacting them and have a look at the reviews if any. Write a review at the end of your stay to tell your feeling about it.
