  • Description


    Hi I'm Leeroy and this is Anthony and our dog Bam, we are a couple looking for some help around our Launceston house. We purchased our home 2 years ago and have started painting the outside as you can see in one of our pictures.

    I work in a primary school and Anthony is a principal, we love food and wine, art, nature and entertaining. Tasmania is a wonderful place to enjoy these things, there are many beautiful hiking trails and camping spots. There are fantastic galleries and artist run spaces which we'd love to show you. We have really great friends who we'd love you to meet and enjoy food and wine with. We love to light the fire outside at the end of the day and have a few drinks.

    We have a beautiful red kelpie who loves going for walks and playing catch. He is everyone's best friend and is great company. We live between Launceston and hobart so there is lots of opportunity to get around the beautiful state.

    We always have a project or two on the go. At the moment we are renovating a bathroom and painting the house. We are always out in the garden and enjoy growing our own produce. We would like to exchange board and food for a hand with a range of jobs but in particular gardening and painting. No experience needed just a willingness to learn and lend a hand.

    We would love to have you stay with us and show you around our beautiful state. Any questions please feel free to text or email me. We look forward to hearing from you. :)
