  • Description



    I am a single Mum to 3 children under 14, a dog, 2 cats, 2 highland x cows, 8 chooks and 2 ducks :D
    We live 400kms from Melbourne (1/2 way to Adelaide) in rural Victoria.
    I run a catering business, work for a bank, teach at Tafe, and have a first aid business.

    I am looking for someone who is prepared to isolate here with us during Covid and help home-school the kids and keep the house running with me.
    In return I can offer food and board (own room), sketchy wi-fi, fun times, a peaceful bushsetting, and some pocket money to help when you are able to freely move about OZ again.
    Depending on your skills there may also be some farm tasks available.

    Just remember we live in rural Victoria and are quite remote - it's 40kms to town and you can't see another house from our place! :D

    I am looking for someone who are interested in helping around the house doing jobs such as

    House Cleaning
    Gardening & fencing
    Helping to look after the Animals

    We are interested in sharing our lifestyle with travelers so I can show my children how big the world really is... And to show travelers how welcoming Australians are :)

    What else ...

    Our property is rural remote so it's preferable that you have your own transport incase you want to go to the shops for supplies
    Once Covid ends we are happy to take you to local places sightseeing and we will be more than happy to pick you up or drop you off at the bus stop in town (V-line).
