  • Description


    Welcome to the Central Australia, come and live in the heart of Australia. We are only hours away from Uluru and Kings Canyon, plus many other heritage listed sites. We have a beautiful house with swimming pool, chickens and a dog. You will have you're own room, food and rent free. We eat mainly vegetarian. Alanna lives in front house with Jasper, we like quiet, you will stay with us. Eamon and Claire live in second back house.

    We plan to take you to a music and arts festival called "Wide Open Spaces" we will pay for the ticket for some help at the festival. It is so much fun!

    We like to have fun and we live busy lives throughout the week. We are young 28yrs and 32yrs. We like music, beer, friends and laughter. We are both open-minded and caring women. We do not welcome racism, sexism or homophobia here. Alanna identifies as a lesbian and both of us are involved in social justice movements. This role would suit someone who is very open minded.

    About us:

    We are two single working mothers in need of an extra set of hands and cultural exchange. Someone who is willing to be apart of the crew, step up and also have fun.

    Claire is a doctor and mother of Eamon who is nearly 4.

    Alanna is a social worker and mother of Jasper who is nearly 7 years old.

  • Help


    Both of our children are at school and preschool everyday so we do not expect you to work during this time.

    Claire requires care for Eamon every Thursday after preschool and duties include putting Eamon to bed and being available overnight as Claire is at the hospital working. 1-2 weekend nights per month Claire has to work a 24 hour shift and requires care for Eamon.

    Alanna requires babysitting after work for a few hours at a time, a couple of days a week. Alanna would like to have the freedom to attend yoga classes and some social events from time to time.

    Alanna requires Jasper to be picked up from school every Monday afternoon.

    We both usually work 8:30 AM - 5pm so you will have daytime free.

    On a Friday or Sat night we like to go out dancing or socializing.
