  • Description


    We live on 25 acres approximately 7 km from Tamborine Mountain (tourist area in the Gold Coast hinterland) and 20 km to Beenleigh which has a train station to both the Gold Coast and Brisbane. We do not live within walking distance to public transport, nor shops. It is semi-rural.

    Unfortunately we are not in a position to offer 2nd year visa sign off however, let me give you a little information about us, our family and what we are looking for.

    Our home includes dogs,horses ,chickens and cows; we also have three beautiful grand children who visit regularly. Tony and I both run our own businesses.

    We love the idea of obtaining help and at the same time meeting people from all walks of life and with different cultures.

    Currently we are looking for help predominately with outside work including mowing, wipper snippering, and to help us with a project of removing horse yard fences ready for installation of new fencing by contractor.

    We are non smokers. We do not wish to offend, but ask that only non smokers apply.

    If you have any enquiries or additional question, please do not hesitate to contact us via email. cheers and we look forward to hearing from you.
