  • Description


    My husband and I live on a farm. We have 2 lovely twins 5 year old daughters and artie 2 year old
    we manage a sheep farm. I am a swimming instructor and beauty therapist and my husband is a sheep shearer. We grow our own organic veggies. We live 650 acres with 2 fresh water lagoons that you can kayak on, sheep dogs chase , chooks we also have plenty of wildlife ie Wallabys, possums and Kangaroos. We need help in many areas depending on your skills. We would prefer someone who loves small children, someone wanting au-pair work would be awesome.

    We are very lucky family and our farm has not been effected by the fire there is still
    Lots to do and see on kangaroo island
