    Hello Travellers!!

    We are a friendly, welcoming family of four (however: our 2 children have moved out now) with a passion for travelling…..!!
    We are interested to meet and assist travelling couples (or 2 friends) in exchange for assistance with property maintenance, painting, gardening and veggie gardening, cleaning, etc. {nothing too strenuous though :-) }
    At this stage we are looking for helpers who are are 23 years old or older ànd have some Workaway/ comparable references.
    We have availability from Mid September 2019
    We live close to nature on a 1/2 acre block in the beautiful village of Federal in an authentic, nicely renovated timber home("Queenslander") nestled in the hills behind Byron Bay. We have a 14m salt water swimming pool!
    We are not far from the stunning rainforests around "Minyon Falls" and being so close to Byron Bay beaches is always a plus: surfing, beautiful walks, visiting the Byron Bay lighthouse or whale watching!!
    Our property gets regular visits from (up to 4!!) koala's and occasionally we get visited by Wallabies as well as an Eastern Grey Kangaroo. Recently we had a Goanna on the property and there are Echidna's as well.
    We have 2 gorgeous little puppy-dogs and a few chickens.
    Usually we ask for 4 genuine hours per day / 6 days week or 24 hours/week - it can be spread out over the week in whatever way suits YOU!
    In return we offer you a spacious, very private bed/living-room with your own TV and your own bathroom. All meals (vegetarian, except for when Paul fires up the BBQ) will be included.
    Free WIFI access.
    Also: we have a very strong preference for non-smoking Workawayers...
    And: we can ONLY accept people who have their own travel-(including medical) insurance!
    Furthermore: you will need to have your own car as we are quite isolated and there is no public transport around here

    Please contact us for more information if you are interested to stay with us!!
    Warm regards,
    Paul & Kea
    :)
