About the workproject

We need 2 volunteers

Jalbrook Estate is located in the beautiful Blackwood River Valley in the South West of Western Australia. We have a large parkland garden as well as deluxe self contained cottages on site. A small herd of resident alpacas and an alpaca knitwear gallery is also a part of this garden. We host bus tours on the property and our travellers are encouraged to interact and meet our guests.

I am recently widowed after losing my husband. We were married for 46 years and started to develop our property twenty years ago. I have two adult children and four beautiful grandchildren. We have hosted many young travellers in our home for the past twenty years and many have returned to visit. The property is well known in the region.
