Assignment details

Location: Brimbin 2430

Region: Mid-North Coast

State: New South Wales

Duration: 33 days

Dates: 20-Jul-2019 - 21-Aug-2019

Requirements: We have a lovely small farm on the mid-north coast NSW with 2 dogs, 4 cats, 2 galahs, a few chickens, ducks, goats. Very private yet conveniently close to town, only 12 minutes drive to the Taree town centre or the M1 motorway, 30 minutes to beautiful Forster. This 4 week homestay would suit animal & nature lovers. Hidden within this 160 acre property is a comfortable two bedroom cottage with views down to the river, with a fully fenced and secure house yard. Allow 30 minutes every morning and 30 minutes every evening to meet the feeding routine of our pets and livestock, also about 30 minutes each week to clean the chicken coop. It is not hard work, it is just keeping up the routine which we can show you. If you are a bird lover you can sit with our friendly Galahs Rocket & Ellie and they will love to share a cup of tea and toast in the morning. Relax with a book under the wrap around verandah, or paddle a kilometre of pristine river before you see a neighbour. Day trips to Forster, Port Macquarie & Gloucester, you can leave early in the morning after feeding the animals, but you need to be home by 5pm before it gets dark to lock up the goats and chickens away, and lock the cats inside. Yes you really need to like cats because they will want some attention, but they will do their own thing during the day, and they wont bother you at night if you shut your bedroom door. At home we have Satellite NBN with 90GB per month, TV, Netflix, Foxtel, gas heating and cooking, and comfy beds.
