  • Description


    Come explore the Ningaloo reef, Western Australia!
    We are a family of four living in Exmouth, WA looking for an au pair to come stay with us next year. We love the outdoors, camping, diving, swimming, boating and this is an AMAZING place to explore... Whale sharks, whales, mantas, dugong and turtles ! The big five of Ningaloo!! We would love to share our experiences of this place, and host a traveller in exchange for help with our two kids after school ..
    Pete and I work full time for parks and wildife, so if your looking for extra nature based experience then we can definitely help you see the sights Exmouth has to offer during your stay. We have chickens, fish and cat and often take in orphaned or injured wildlife.
    Max and Matilda (our kids) are 6 and 7 and are pretty independent, they are learning to bike to school and have after school activities most days.
    You would have your own queen sized room, own bike, own bathroom and wifi.
    We are looking for someone who would be happy to work the afternoons for us and either explore the area or work part time elsewhere in the evenings / mornings to keep busy :) most of all, we are looking for a responsible person who enjoys the company of kids!
    We are looking for someone who wants to stay for us for at least 3months, so if all this sounds like something you would like to add to your trip then please get in touch for more info :)
