  • Description


    Attention Couples or Singles? We need you.
    Our home is beautiful and on 5 acres with 4 horses, a small dog and a couple of chickens - BUT - we have just purchased 67 acres as well (with another beautiful house and magic views) only 5 minutes away from this one. We are close to Hobart (only 20 minutes by car) and transport is available.

    We need to get our smaller acreage tidied up and looking spick and span around the grounds as we need to put this house up for sale, so we can move to our other property. Lots to do there too. Our current home is big and lovely. You'd have your own great Queen size room, and we are friendly and global frequent travellers ourselves! Although we are in our 60's ourselves, we are very young at heart - and we have two amazing children (don't live here but nearby with partners) who are in their late 20's / 30's.

    At the bottom of our road, is a fantastic country pub (5 minutes walk) and it has live bands every Sunday afternoon (it's fabulous).

    Help to be done is gardening, bit of painting, clearing up our horse paddocks (sticks and horse mess etc), tidying our sheds up, if a couple maybe some help could be given to me (Annie) in packing up stuff inside the house to move over to our shed on our other property. You can cook, we can cook, we can all cook - choice is your own. We provide all you'll need though.

    Come and help us. We also have a friend coming to stay with us from Cairns and he has workawayers at his property - so its a great introduction if you then wish to travel up there!

    We need help within the next couple of weeks - for about a month or more. If you can only stay a few weeks, that's fine too.

    Get in touch with us.
    Annie and Grant

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are well-travelled, in fact we run a company working with international students and as such we travel worldwide to many countries often. We've just returned from USA, but also travel through Europe and Asia. We are super friendly, welcoming, and we would love to learn about YOU, and your culture and share our travels and knowledge and Australian way of life with you.

    Help us get our house ready for sale ... and help us with our new house we have already purchased!
    Couples welcome

    We live on a fabulous 5 acres, only 20 minutes outside of Hobart. Transport is available. Our home is comfortable, stunning (like a ski chalet inside) and we have a spare private bedroom. At the bottom of our road there is a fabulous country pub that has live bands every Sunday afternoon - and is a great place to go for a break (walking distance).

    We are frequent world travellers ourselves and so welcome all. Our home is needing to be put up for sale (because we have purchased another beautiful 67 acres and home - again close to Hobart - with magnificent views), and we need to get this house ready to sell.

    What we need help with at this house:
    - garden tidy up - weeding, mulching, raking etc
    - horse yard tidy up
    - general tidy and maintenance jobs (clearing sheds, fixing / tidying things up)
    - inside sorting, boxing, packing stuff, cleaning and moving things
    Me (the woman of the house) could use some help with my horses and sometimes cooking a meal would be great :)

    At our new house:
    - cleaning up any wire around pasture paddocks (for safety of horses before they move there)
    - fencing assistance
    - gardening assistance
    - general assistance with husband (excavations / drains / carport erection etc)

    Our family:
    My husband and I, plus we have a small cute dog 'Daisy'; 4 horses (Kazz, Buddy, Scout and Solli) and a couple of chickens!

    Our friend:
    A friend is also living with us (from Cairns) for a while to help us too - he is great and our willing workaway helpers will be helping him on our property as well.

    Important: You will need to feel comfortable around animals (small dog, horses, chickens);
    A bonus if you have horse skills

    We need self-starters:
    Gardeners, handyman (or at least willing to give things a go and learn on the job), building or building labourer assistant, physical help on a property, maybe some fencing or helping with fencing.
    Physically fit

    If you are a couple (Great)!
    Perhaps one of you would like to cook occasionally - and I need help inside the house for our move!
