  • Description


    Gidday!!! Let us introduce our family ... we are Justin, Felicity, Frankie and Clancy and we'd love to share our little slice of Australian paradise with you. We live on the outskirts of Brisbane in a semi-rural location and also share our life with dogs, cats, chickens and polo ponies. We are a very fun family that thrives on the outdoor lifestyle this part of the world enables. Frankie and Clancy are just starting their school journey, Justin and Felicity run a local property maintenance business. And we all ride our ponies as often as we can.

    We'd like to open our home to a couple or two travellers who are keen riders and can help us around the house and in the garden. We are located in a semi-rural location so self sufficiency is important.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We live in a very beautiful part of Australia and are located on the doorstep of the beaches and islands that make Queensland famous. Between May and October, we will be travelling to polo matches on some weekends too. We have the superb mix of both urban and rural lifestyles as we live only 20kms from the bustle of Brisbane City and can sleep at night without street light or sound of a vehicle. You can go bushwalking in the morning and go to a concert that afternoon!

  • Help


    We are looking for some help from across the year around the house, in the garden and even in the stables and a little childcare. That means cleaning and tidying, doing laundry and folding, some meals if you are a great cook, weeding and mulching our garden, feeding animals (that sometimes means our kids!) 5 days a week, 5 hours a day. Some days will be longer than others however we will work with you to get the balance right.

    In return, we'll provide a very comfortable, self contained cottage and meals as well as an experience in Australia that we hope will be a positive and memorable one. You can share meals with us or prepare them in your kitchen. Ideally, you'll need to be a confident rider, have initiative and be capable of following instruction in relation to jobs to be done.
