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 young adult 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 and quite large 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 a small inside room with single bed for individual travellers.
Over the cooler months, we are currently looking for early risers (7 am) to help with our retriever in the mornings whilst we get ready for work. After a play and walk, you will have lots of time to go out yourself on the many Blue Mountains walks.
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.
We are really keen to have travellers stay again now travel to Australia has opened up. We miss having people stay and share their stories and having meals together.
Please consider us if you'd like a welcoming place to stay. Our retriever is still only 5 years and loves to play and have endless cuddles so you will need to love dogs as well as our cat who tends to break into rooms and sneak on the bed.
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.
Small room inside for single traveller. 3 bedroom house with outside deck looking on to large backyard and reserve. We have a variety of beautiful birdlife who come to visit daily and like being hand fed. 20 minute walk to train station or 5 minute walk to bus stop for bus to Katoomba. Great multicultural home cooked meals.
