Hi I'm very interested in learning more about the scheme and about the towns and jobs available please contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org. :)
Is there any info on queensland for the 1 dollar deals or similar thanks
hi there id like to know both of these things that the first 2 people asked on this blog pls let me know by emailing me on email@example.com
hi, would like more info on how the scheme works . what other areas are there as well.thanks
Yes I would like to know if there are any in Queensland too.
Interested in Queensland area. I am multi-skilled and feel I could contribute alot to a community and provide training for young people in various fields. I am interested in finding out more!
i would be very interested in this program should it be available in qld...
we are teachers and nurse with children..enjoy reno work...
HUbby, me and the kids dead keen to come an live this lifestyle, we have trades and can offer your toen lots, please let me know work wise what there is, we are not fussy we can go to any town any state...
Hi, Yes obviously keen to go where there is a 'home and yard' with work and jobs about if available. Always working and flexible to go where I can. Been living in Qld for 26 years, so love the place, but just as keen to give other areas a go. Have done a lot of caretaking sheep and cattle properties, high rise apartment buildings and other private home properties. Would love the opportunity to 'settle down' a lot more, and not have to move on every six months due to landlords selling up or rents hiking up!
Sounds very interesting. I know of a family currently living in another country, that would jump at a chance for this lifestyle change. The kids are teens and the Husband is a keen carpenter and DIY man. He currently builds and renovates cinemas for a living, the wife is well educated too. I guess the only problem is qualifying with there skills and knowledge to get into Australia. Maybe, someone knows how they could be offered a better opportunity and let me know ....
soumds great .my mum & i are interested in a diferent kind of life rather than the city.rents are very expensive here in newcastle. a change is what were looking for.thanks
I just wanted to say that anyone interested in the Rent a Farmhouse make sure u have a trade or otherwise u will be wasting your time and money. My family has applied for a house since the start and have been rejected each time because my husband didnt have a trade even though he was willing to do farm work and do IT work and I was an aged care nurse. I also find it disappointing they are more focused on the work side of this process and not wanting to keep the population growth up. So we have decided to save and buy our own tree change then we dont need to feel rejected and unworthy.
This of course is the factor thats important. Its no good moving until you secure a job, and there aren't many ones available apart from farm work and plant maintenance. Thats why the country towns are dying. A lack of jobs.
There are a lot of jobs advertised in The Land newspaper. looking through them, yes, its all trades or experienced farm hands. At 61, that would probably kill me. Ten years ago maybe.
The other way to go is to get yourself an HR or HC truck license. Thats what I'll probably do. This also qualifies you for mine work too.
looking for what areas are up on offer in the nsw areas, thanks.
WHERE'S THE MAP? your website is very hard to find info on! I can move anywhere prefer nsw/vic. why do you not have a full list/map of locations.

My daughter and I are looking to relocate to a rural area and thus we have applied to join your community.
Having read several of the posts on the websites and forums, I was wondering exactly what the criteria is that your communities have in mind when shortlisting the applicants?
I may not have a trade, but I have worked on farms before, I can drive a tractor and operate implements, and I also have administration experience and qualifications. I can certainly perform a vast array of renovation and decoration tasks and I love helping others do it to! I am more than willing to help anyone out whenever it is desired or required, or for that matter, even when it is just likely to be appreciated! That is part of why we wish to relocate. We wish to be a part of the community, to be active participants rather than mere residents. Hence, we do not "fit in" here in suburbia.
Anyway, we hope you consider our application worthy and we look forward to hearing from you in the near future!
As I feel this is a worthy cause I have posted to my face-book page and also to a few "Farmer" pages this Groups Web page details. I hope that is acceptable. If not just slap me.... lol
hi i have been looking for farm land for quite a while now you see we are currently renting 6 acres but its just not enough for what we are using it for and its so expensive.. we rescue horses and break them in for childrens mounts and rehome them to forever homes.. so i was wondering if people have any farms for rent for like 300 a week or less in victoria with at least 20 acres?
I have seen the story the Courier Mail Posted. Are there any properties sin Queensland that you can do the same thing on. Please contact me on my email I would like to know more. Many thanks
We applied over 5 yes ago and never heard anything back. Frustrating!
Nice blog thanks ffor posting
Cumnock was the first town to co-ordinate the $1 a week community farmhouse scheme, and now help other towns to find families.
