    Hi there

    We are caravanning full-time around Australia!

    Mum works from the caravan whilst dad looks after the kids. We'd love someone to help with the kids/babystitting, some cooking, and social media/photography/videography for our website and social pages.

    Don't worry, you wont need to sleep in the van with us - we will have a separate tent (bed/duvet/lights etc) to keep you cozy next to the caravan. We will be travelling North from Byron Bay so the weather should be good as we go. We plan to stop in coastal towns along the way - staying for about 5 days in each town and then moving to other camps over the weekends.

    We are looking for a female who is excellent with kids. You will have great experience in babysitting/nannying/au pairing and credible references. You will preferably be trained in childcare and or first aid. We want someone who is warm, confident and loves to have fun and engage with kids. We are looking for someone respectful and responsible.

    The hours will be flexible and we can discuss what works best.

    In exchange we offer food ( Jeff is vegetarian, but Jen eats meat so the choice is yours), accommodation, and transport to each town as well as covering park fees.
    We plan to leave from Byron Bay in the first week on May and head North.

    We're a friendly and welcoming family and have had 3 Workawayers stay with us before. We all got along really well and are still in touch with them. The one workawayer was going to come on the van trip with us but we were heading in the opposite direction to where she had already travelled.

    We'd love to hear from you.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are a South African family who have immigrated to Australia so you will get to experience two cultures by coming to our house! We are English first language. Myself and Jeff have done a fair bit of travel ourselves (before babies!) and we are interested in foreign cultures so would welcome having a foreigner in our home.

  • Help


    We need you to look after Spike (4 yrs) and Scout (3yrs), for a few hours in the day, cook a few meals, and help take pics/video for us to use on our social media channels, with a small bit of washing up.
