    Hi, my name is Tracey :)

    My children are 29, 27 and 24 - two of which still live with me. We have two dogs, Barney and Angel, both very old in age but not spirit. I'm looking for some help with tasks around the garden/home and assistance with the care of our oldest dog Angel as her back legs have recently started deteriorating :( In exchange, I can offer you accommodation and food (Vegan).

    We have a lovely home close to the beach and have hosted 20+ international students over the years as a host for the local high school. I have traveled extensively and my son Sam has WorkedAway around Europe so I am very aware of the needs of foreign travelers and the mutually beneficial nature of WorkAway. We choose to eat Vegan and while that has to be respected, all are welcome in our home.

    Australia, and largely the Gold Coast, is a melting pot of culture and ideas - there is something for everyone here. We have been living Vegan for 5 years now and are always happy to share what we have learned along the way :)

    The Gold Coast is a travelers paradise. We moved here from Tasmania after holidaying here regularly. We live in Mermaid Waters, a central suburb of the Gold Coast, close to our world-class beaches and very close to Pacific Fair, one of our major shopping centers. Broadbeach and Surfers Paradise are also close by for a very active nightlife - although we ask you aren't returning home past 12am on weeknights as we work early.
