Pet & kid friendly bungalow on hobby farm near Buninyong, Ballarat. Wild kangaroos, range of native birds including rosellas & kookaburras and beautiful valley views make this a great place to relax with your animal & human family.
Two room bungalow is located on a 12 acre hobby farm which backs onto crown land and is a short ride to state forest with dozens of trails suitable for bushwalking, horse and bike riding.
Bungalow is best suited for 2 people but could cater for a couple of children as well though would be a bit cramped.
Bungalow has own fenced yard suitable for dogs. Yards and stables are also available if you want to bring your horse on holidays with you.
Property also has round yard and dressage arena for horse riding and we may be able to provide pony rides (weather and time permitting).

Échanges avec les voyageurs
I live in the main farmhouse on the property. Interaction with guests depends on my availability and guests desires (I work 2 very long days in Melbourne and 1 day a week from home). Can provide info about local tourist attractions and if I am not working I may be able to give guided tours, led pony rides and basic riding lessons if desired.
Great place to holiday with your pets.
Also I used to run my own childcare business so have range of toys available to loan if you holiday with kids.
For International guests we are happy to teach you a bit about Australia's history etc. We used to be hosts for HelpXchange and love sharing bits of our culture with international visitors.
Dogs and horses okay with previous approval, other pets negotiable. No smoking inside any buildings (if smoking outside you must collect all butts). Quiet and respectful behaviour as we rent the granny flat at back of house to long term tenant so please be respectful to her.
I am a single mother by choice of 2 fantastic girls. I moved to my farm near Ballarat from Melbourne 8 years ago and have loved hosting helpXchange international back packers here for the past 5 years.
My daughters and I love travelling and have travelled through most of a Australia and a bit overseas as budget conscious travellers doing fly/drive/backpacker holidays and road trip / camping holidays.
I love animals especially horses and really enjoy helping others to enjoy them too.
My friends come from all walks of life: different religions, cultures, backgrounds and sexualities. The one thing they all have in common is a belief in every individuals right to live life according to their own beliefs so long as they cause no harm to anyone else.
