Yes, I recommend this program

WWOOFing is such an amazing way to travel and volunteer in Australia!

! had the best experience of my life WWOOFing!
Wonderful, kind, knowledgeable hosts teach organic growing techniques. Passionate with love of the planet & passing on skills & techniques.
I learned how to plant trees, make compost, grow food, feed and care for sheep, alpacas, chooks, pigs and cows. I milked for the first time of my life and we cooked several delicious dishes with fresh organic ingredients.
I also met other WWOOFers who became friends and with whom I travelled between Hosts.
I wholeheartedly recommend WWOOFing as a fantastic way to trave, meet local people, share their lives for a while and make lifelong friends.

If you did this all over again, what's one thing you would change?
I would have joined WWOOF earlier so I had more time to plan my trip ad fit in more amazing hosts. Some sounded so good but I ran out of time to visit all of the ones I would have liked to meet.
