    We are a family of 4, ages - 30, 36, 8 and 1. We have a lovely home in Thornbury close to a bus stop and the city of Melbourne, creeks and parks. We are a conscious and inclusive family and need some help gardening and unpacking/sorting through the garage, odd jobs here and there. We have a spare room for temporary short stays.

    We are so close to the city and there is so much to do 'north side' of the city. There is great live music, inclusive community, bushlands, national parks close by, museums, art galleries, markets and more! The is an amazing food scene here in Melbourne. If the workaway person needs help practicing their English language skills we can help with that too.
