  • Description

    Description

    We are a loud, fun and just a little bit messy family of 5 (mum, dad, + a 14 year old, 11 year and 4 year old). We love our large home in the Blue mountains and happy to share our guest room with a talented traveller. There are a lot of creative projects we have around the house inside and out, and if you can help out in between your travels - what a great partnership. We do have 3 cats, a dog, and chickens (they add to the fun & messy part).

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The Blue Mountains has so many sights to visit including wonderful bushwalks, one of which is on our doorstep. We are also happy to share our English skills and provide transport to the wonderful adventures. We can also offer accommodation in Sydney and in a vineyard at the Hunter Valley (through our parents) - who are also happy to share hospitality in return for some labour.

    We are happy to organise upfront what you would like to work on and when you would like to work so we are all clear and provide each other space as needed. We love to share the beauty of our area in the Blue Mountains and with a little notice, happy to help with transport to each exciting destination. Shane is a wonderful cook and happy to produce amazing fresh food that you enjoy (plus learn any wonderful recipes from you in exchange). In regards to the work, we love not only high quality skills but also a creative mind that will help us make our Blue Mountain home comfy yet inspiring. So we will listen to your ideas and advice.
