Are you looking for a change of scenery and a new experience! This job on a Rose Farm in Nambucca Valley might just be what you are looking for!

Job details are mulching, weeding, brush cutting, painting, fixing, assistance with the roses/bushes, help with weekly market stall & local distribution of our roses, pat the farm dogs, play with our 3 boys (ages 3, 8, 10 – NOT babysitting, just engaging with them – kick a ball, push the tyre swing, play some cards, read a book, check out their drawings, snuggle on the lounge & watch some kids tv etc while I get dinner ready each night, & chat to them when they come & find you on the property to say g’day to you).

Accommodation is separate to our main house, fully self contained with own bathroom,kitchen, & your own deck overlooking the dam & rose field. Provisions are given for you to have breakfast & lunch by yourself, at your leisure. Join our family at main house for dinner each evening. Vegetarians & carnivores welcome but sincerely regret that we are unable to cater for vegan diets. Job would suit singles, couples & must like being around and interacting with children. Working 2-6 weeks. Pristine beaches are just 20 mins drive.

If you don’t have a car, you’ll need to be content to spend your next non-working time relaxing on the property. Or jump a ride whenever we go into town ourselves. We have kangaroos, wallabies, frogs, birds, trees & roses. We do also have snakes, spiders & insects – it’s not a rose garden, it’s a working rose farm! Interested?? Please get in touch 🙂
