Australia is a proud farming nation and an ideal place to learn about farming life while enjoying the great outdoors. Internex has ties to more than 250 horse, livestock, and mixed farms in every state in Australia, so you can trust us to find the perfect placement for you.
Helping on a farm in Australia provides an opportunity for you to live and work on with a Aussie farming family, develop new skills, improve your English and learn about the Australian farming Culture.
Your primary role on the farm will either be helping with horses, with cows (milking, calving), looking after children and most typically, a combination of roles that best suit you and the family. There are also options on agricultural, sheep, beef, pig and mixed use farms on request if you have experience in these areas.
You will live with your host family and receive meals and accommodation. Generally your room will be in the main home, however it is also common for the family to have a sleep out/rumpus room. You will help on average for 5-6 hours per day and will also be expected to help out with all domestic chores related to cooking and cleaning and grocery shopping etc.
If you have previous experience with horses, or have worked on a farm (minimum 2 years full time experience or equivalent) you can chose to stay up to 24 weeks. If you do not have the required experience the maximum amount of time you can stay is 12 weeks. Some families agree to an extension once you have arrived and have proven your ability.
