    Hi, I am looking specifically to host Japanese travellers.

    My name is Trish. I am 51 years old and I am from Australia. I lived the Whitsunday's in Tropical North Queensland. I am happily married to Husband Phil and have 2 young men aged 17 (Max) & 19 (Sam). We have a wonderful active life living in this tropical paradise we call home. We enjoy boating, diving, mountain biking, road riding, tennis, skiing & boarding. My other interests are tending my vegetable garden, hiking, trail running and in the last 12 months, trying to learn the Japanese language.

    We have owned and operated a relatively large Helicopter Maintenance Facility here in the Whitsundays for 26 years. In September of 2018 we are semi retiring. Afterwards my Husband Phil is planning on working on helicopters in Antarctica for 3 months of the year and I would like to head back to Japan and immerse myself in the Japanese culture and try and improve my grasp on the language. I would also like to host any Japanese travellers looking to visit Australia .

    The Whitsundays is one of the most beautiful places in the world. I have traveled to many countries and still love returning to our little piece of paradise.

    For the last 5 years we have been to Japan every January to Ski and Board. I have been captivated with the beauty, the culture and it's people. I am currently in Awaji Shima, Japan for a month as a Workaway myself so you can see I am quite motivated to learn the language.

    Hi, I am looking specifically to host Japanese travellers.

    The main priority to host any travellers would be language practice. There are other things that you could help with as we live on a large block that takes time to manage. You could help mow lawn, feed cows, wash cars, clean pool or just help out with any general maintenance. Also I'd love youth teach me to cook Japanese food!!!

    I would imagine that 2 - 4 hours a day 5 days a week would be plenty. We can be flexible with hours depending on what you would like to do and see.

    Having your own transport would be Ideal but not necessary. We live right next door to a bus depot. If you decide to do any of the tours such as sailing, diving, boating then most companies have a curtesy coach that will pick you up. there are also some lovely walks that you could do and I have a moped that I am happy to lend if you have an international Drivers Lic.
