    I love to fix things up myself but there are just some jobs that need 2 pairs of hands - at the moment I would especially like some help painting.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We have hosted numerous au pairs, workawayers and travelers through AirBnb and I just love what they bring to our little family.

    I enjoy spending time getting to know my workawayers so I can understand how I can help you achieve all that you want on your travels.

    My private spacious studio accommodation is usually rented out but would be all yours for the duration of your stay. The studio is a large open plan room containing a kitchenette with a separate bathroom.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Geraldton is a small city of approx 40,000 people. There is plenty to see and do, plenty of other au-pairs to meet and plenty of fun with our family and friends!

    During the spring, summer and early autumn months from September through April, Geraldton experiences consistent seabreezes.

    Kitesurfing and windsurfing locations in and near Geraldton include Back Beach, Separation Point ("Seppos"), Point Moore, Hell's Gate, St. George, Sunset Beach and Coronation Beach.

    Coronation Beach is an internationally renowned windsurfing destination, located approximately 25 km north of the city.

    Surfing, and more recently Stand-Up Paddlesurfing, are also popular activities in and around Geraldton. Popular surf spots include Flat Rocks, Headbutts, Greenough, Back Beach, Sunset Beach and Glenfield. Stand-Up Paddlesurfing spots include Point Moore, Town Beach, The Foreshore, St. Georges Beach and Drummond Cove to the north.

    In winter, local weather conditions shift to predominantly easterly (offshore) winds. Indian Ocean storms generate large swells that produce good conditions for surfing (though the fringe barrier reef protecting the Geraldton coastline blocks much of the swell, significantly reducing the size of the waves that reach the beaches). Large swells may create potentially dangerous rip currents as water flows through passages between the reef.

    Saltwater fishing, boating and sailing are popular along Geraldton's coastline.

    Scuba diving and snorkelling are popular activities around Geraldton. There are several wreck diving sites off the coast, including the South Tomi, which was sunk in 2004.
