Willing Workers On Organic Farms is a unique membership organization linking travellers to hundreds of farming properties all over Australia. You
don't need a working visa to participate because work is unpaid
A word of warning. As with any human endeavor some people will seek to exploit others and some WWOOF hosts are commercial farmers participating so as to profit from your almost free (SLAVE) labour. Our further concern is that when WWOOFers have reported bad experiences to the Organisation in the past their report's have been ignored.
BEWARE if it doesn't feel right - it probably isn't!
