  • Description


    I am a wife and mum of 3 children, aged 13 (boy), 11(girl) and 9(boy). we live on a vegetable farm 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.

    We are 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.

    We are a typical country family who enjoy the outdoors, mountain biking, camping, mountain climbing, water skiing.

    I enjoy having people stay with us from all over the world so our family can learn about different cultures.

    I travelled as a backpacker years ago and had a family who opened their home to me, so I like to give the opportunity to others too

    I am looking for someone to support our children with homeschooling as soon as possible. They are 10, 12 and 14 years old. My 14 yo has learning difficulties.

    I would like help around the house with cooking evening meals and tidying up after, 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.
