  • Description


    Located close to shops, bus stop and parks our house is located halfway between Brisbane and Ipswich. It's an hour away from the famous Gold Coast beaches and also the quieter Sunshine Coast. 20 minutes in the opposite direction finds you in some of the most beautiful country areas of Queensland. My husband Bob and I share our home with Bailey the beagle, Tilly the Border Collie , Lola the ragdoll cat and lots of native birds which we feed in the leafy back yard. Unlimited wifi, your own room with television and a kitchenette with fridge, we also have a couple of pushbikes you are welcome to use. At the moment we are trimming, weeding and mulching gardens and would like some assistance. You may also be asked to help out with cleaning and other small chores around the home.

  • Help


    We would love some help weeding, planting, trimming and mulching the gardens, as well as general cleaning. Not heavy work but does require some strength emptying wheelbarrows and lifting branches to put in the mulcher. We require only three hours per day (9am to 12 midday) for five days, and then two days leisure time.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We live in South East Queensland which is well known for its stunning world-class beaches with white sand, warm surf and great weather almost year round. There are also plenty of beautiful areas to be found out in the countryside. You can travel from our place in a number of directions, spend each weekend doing something different! There are islands offshore from Brisbane, and to the north and to the south you can visit the coastal regions, and there are a number of towns big and small to the west. We are 10 minutes walk from a large shopping centre (Redbank Plains Towns Square) with restaurants, a pub, variety stores and Coles, Woolworths and Aldi. 10 minutes walk also to the bus stop, so you can catch a bus to the train station to access Brisbane and Gold Coast as well as the Sunshine Coast. There's plenty of places to visit, you won't be bored!!
