Au Pair & Wh Visa Work On An Animal Sanctuary

Rescue farm Peachester, Sunshine Coast

2nd Year Visa Eligible

Job Description

Volunteer/exchange position that counts towards 2nd and 3rd year visa.

Over 6 years we've welcomed over 100 backpackers to our beautiful rescue farm on the Sunshine Coast.

Our offer is unique (similar to WOOFING/helpx/work away) where we provide food and accommodation in exchange for 24hrs help each week.

Travellers with Vans welcome. We have spaces to park and facilities.

Tasks may include: working with 2 children. 2 and 5 years old for school drop offs (license essential. Our car is provided), pickups and afternoon care including cleaning, meals,
reading and bedtime.

Some other work on the farm like organic gardening, fencing, road repairs, flood recovery work and rescue animal care.

We're looking for an individual/s with experience caring for young children independently.

All animals are residents and friends here to live out their lives into old age.

The property is close to Australia Zoo, national parks, bush walks, hiking mountains and swimming lakes. Maleny Botanic Gardens and Bird world is a short drive away.

Sunshine coast beaches 30 minutes
Brisbane 1 hour
Noosa 1 hour

We ask for 24hrs help each week in return for shared accommodation and all vegan/vegetarian food provided from our gardens, other nearby organic farms and stores.

A car is useful to have out here as there is no public transport or shops nearby (15min by car to town).

The accommodation has shared facilities so getting along with others is essential. We often have farm camp fires, play board games and do trips to the beach/activities on the coast.

If helping out on a rescue farm sounds like you get in touch :)
