We are a Christian family living on a property in rural QLD, we love being together and with our friends and family. Our little boy is 4 years old and we need someone to help care for him and assist with a few basic duties around the house during the day, as Julie is studying part-time, working and setting up her new hair salon, and Josh is working full time on the property.
We enjoy playing board games, watching movies, going for picnics, playing music, and just having fun family togetherness in our downtime :)

Help around the house
They could experience living on a property in rural Australia, and meet locals in a friendly, small town community.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We need someone, either a single female or married couple, to help look after our 4-year-old son and help with general home chores such as washing, cooking and cleaning, as Josh works full time and Julie is studying online through university part-time and is running her own hair salon in town.
We have a comfortable caravan available for sleeping and your own privacy, and meals will be in the house with the family.
We are a fun-loving Christian family, and we all do our fair share of work. Josh works full time on the property, and Julie studies in addition to keeping house and working 3 days a week in her hair salon. We would love someone to be a part of our family and help us out; simple things like helping to entertain Henry during the day, and lending a hand with the housework and sometimes cooking, too.
There are some lovely places to see and visit around Taroom, as you can see here on this website: and we would enjoy showing you some of the sights and have you become 'part of our family' for your stay.
You would be expected to help out for just a few hours each day Monday to Friday, but the hours are always flexible; it really is basically just joining our family as we go about each day. Of course, you will have plenty of free time, and whether you’d like to join in with us during your free time or do your own thing, it’s totally up to you! We are located near Taroom about 6 hours drive (by car) from Brisbane or 4 hours drive from Toowoomba or Rockhampton.
Transport to Taroom is available by bus from Brisbane, Toowoomba and Rockhampton, or places in between.
