We have a small cottage in the mid Blue Mountains, walking distance to the train to see the many beautiful sites including the 3 Sisters. You can also easily get a train to the City of Sydney. We love music and having a jam with our piano, drums and guitars. If you would like to be part of our family of mum and teenage daughter and help out with some cleaning and home maintenance, we would love to have you. We do lots of home cooking and love spicy food. There are also great walks close by if you want to keep fit. We have a cat who lives mostly inside and have a young flatcoat retriever who loves cuddles and playing soccer.
We would love to host non-smokers who are happy to eat a variety of healthy meals with us including meat and seafood and lots of vegies as we see sharing meals as an important part of the experience. We respect that some travellers may be vegan but this is difficult for us as we really want to cook and share all types of foods together.
We have outside cabin type accommodation with a double bed, small fridge and tea/coffee making facilities for a couple or single person who would access the main house for bathroom and kitchen facilities. We are happy to just give one small project per week to each of our workawayers to give time to explore the Blue Mountains. We really enjoy the sharing of cultures and travel stories. Normally we ask our guests to work 4 out of 7 days or the equivalent spread out over the week.
The Blue Mountains is now safe to visit with all fires under control. Walks are now open too so you can come and see the beautiful sites, including running waterfalls, now we have had quite a bit of rain. Please come and support our area. We can put you in touch with organisations who are out in the field assisting animals which have lost some of their natural habitat, with food, water and aid. You can also use our sewing machine to make pouches for wildlife as they recover under the care of animal welfare groups.
At our place we would love some help re-varnishing our deck which involves moving some tables etc so this may be more suited to a couple. Otherwise there is always a bit of gardening and housework to do and, of course, playing with and cuddling our animals.
Over the next few months we also have a few weekends planned where we need some dog and cat sitting -so if you don't mind a large retriever wanting to snuggle up with you in front of dvds, we'd love to have you help out in this way :)
We look forward to meeting you!

Great site seeing in the Blue Mountains. Patient host if wanting to practise English. Happy to share cultural recipes.
Help with housework and dog sitting. Some maintenance around the house would be great help. Need to love animals as we have a cat, large dog and lots of wild birds which can be hand fed. If you can play an instrument for jamming or can teach some cool riffs on guitar to a teenager that would be great volunteer work as well.
