  • Description


    I am a wife and mum of 3 children, aged 13 (boy), 11(girl) and 9(boy). we live on a vegetable farm growing mostly carrots, pumpkins, beans and onions near Gatton Queensland.
    It is a beautiful area, surrounded by the great dividing range, 7kms to our closest town, Gatton which has all types of shops and supplies, swimming pool, gym, yoga.
    We are only 1 to 1.5hrs from Brisbane, 1.5-2hrs from Gold Coast.

    My husband manages the vegetable farm and I am a stay at home mum with an online business I run very part time but spend most of my time doing things with the children.

    We are a typical country family who enjoy the outdoors, mountain biking, camping, mountain climbing, water skiing. We also take trips to the beach.

    I enjoy having people stay with us from all over the world so our family can learn about different cultures. I travelled before I had a family and had amazing host families so I like to give the opportunity to others too

    We are a busy family who do alot of activities with the kids on weekends like camping, boating (water skiing), mountain climbing, and kids sport.
    You can learn about the farm and growing vegetables and experience a typical Australian country lifestyle in a rural area.

  • Help


    I am looking for someone to mind the children for some overnights (maybe about once a month) and to help get them off to school some mornings and be there when they get home from school sometimes (even though they are quite self sufficient).

    I would like help around the house with cooking and cleaning (even though we have a house cleaner , so not a alot) and maybe some gardening.

    I expect them to pick up after themselves and show initiative around the house to help keep the household neat and tidy.

    Own air-conditioned living area with toilet and shower in a lovely caravan with access to our house OR we also have a fully furnished farm house available too.
