    Good Host
  • Description


    We live on a 2 hectare bush property 30 minutes southwest of Hobart. Werner is a builder and has just finished building an extension to our house to provide us and our kids Otto (15) and Lilia (12) with some more space.Sam is a primary school teacher working in Hobart.
    Since we’re both really busy we mostly would like help with housework, cooking and some gardening and other jobs around the block but if you have construction skills we would love you to help with some landscaping and building tasks.
    We have a small hut with electricity, an awesome outdoor shower and basic composting toilet setup. There is a camp Kitchen with gas cooker as well but we would prefer to have evening meals together with our helpers.
    We are a German and English speaking household. We all love the outdoors and do a range of activities including mountain biking, bushwalking and swimming.
    Having your own transport is an advantage because we are 4.5km up the hill from the nearest bus stop.
