Volunteer Horse Farm Work - 1 Hour From Melbourne, Accom/wi-fi/car

Equus Pty Ltd Nar Nar Goon North, Victoria

Job Description

We have a position available for a volunteer working on a horse farm. We mainly have Thoroughbred horses which we break in, pre-train, train for racing and we also have some retired racehorses, which are used for riding lessons, eventing and showjumping. We are located on 60 acres, 15 minutes from Pakenham. Our family has 2 kids (9 & 13).

Plenty of opportunities to ride (if you can already), or we can teach you if you are interested. If not, there are plenty of other jobs to do around the farm such as:
Feeding/Watering horses
Helping build fences
Help with construction work
Household duties
Driving kids to / from school

We have had a number of backpackers with us over the years and most we are still in touch with today (happy to provide references).

We can supply you with your own room in separate accommodation (2 bedroom) next to main house. We also will provide all your meals & Wi-Fi, and use of outdoor spa (so refreshing after work, or just to chill out!)
We can also provide use of a car (subject to valid, clean Driver’s Licence) on your days off, so you can go exploring this beautiful region of Victoria. Gippsland has some gorgeous areas to see & enjoy – we are about 1 hour from Phillip Island (see the Penguin Parade), 1 hour from Healesville Sanctuary (see native Australian animals), 1.5 hours from Mt Baw Baw (go skiing in Winter), 1 hour from lovely beaches, 1 hour from Melbourne.

Work is five days a week, two clear days off. We are always renovating something and would love a hand with that if you are interested in building, painting etc.

We look forward to hearing from you soon. Please either email or text me, and we look forward to meeting soon. Please note, work with us does NOT count towards a second year visa extension, nor is it paid work.

For the right applicant, we are also happy to take someone on a part-time basis if you want to get another job along with this one. Minimum stay is 3 weeks.

If you are travelling to Victoria and want to arrange your position ahead of time, we can do that, so let us know when you will be here and we can advise if we have a position available.
