About the workproject

We need 1 volunteer

We live in Tasmania, the little island state of Australia. We're lucky to live in the Huon Valley, which is just gorgeous, on a 40 acre property. We run a tourism business with horse drawn carriages in historic Hobart, some 65kms away. We always need help with care and training of our fantastic team of horses. We will only take volunteers who are very experienced with horses thanks.

About the host



Host since



English, German

It's been a while since I spoke German but I used to be able to understand quite a bit. With a bit of patience, I'll be able to understand you, especially if you write it down for me!

We are a couple who have a passion for horses. We moved to Tasmania in 2014 from Queensland. Sharon has two adult children and Steve has none. We're all on our own now, except for our horses! We enjoy showing Tasmania to travellers from all over the world.
