    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    If you are interested in food gardening, entertaining a toddler, cooking, cleaning, building a deck or enclosing a carport into a office room please let us know.

    We are very easy going and flexible with what you want to do. We will appreciate any help around the house you are willing to provide to lighten our load. If you would like to get away to a different part of Australia for a few days and return we are flexible and able to drive you to airport etc.

    We have a little girl so we try and do fun things with her and you are welcome to join us. Feed the ducks at the botanical gardens, go to Underwater World, depending on the time of year the beach, go to theme parks etc. Whatever you would like we will try to accommodate and make your stay in Brisbane, and our home, as enjoyable as possible. We are very open to suggestions and fun outings.

  • Help


    We live 20mins from Brisbane city. We want to get our vegetable garden producing more and learn more about producing produce. So anyone who has food growing experience would be great, otherwise we can learn along the way together.

    We are also in the process of building a deck out the back so help may be required with this project as well as building a room out the back for my husband to us as an office.

    We are a family of 3 with a toddler. She is beautiful, heaps of fun and very social, so someone that likes kids would be AMAZING! Help us create fun activities for her and come on outings to local attractions. I am studying nutritional medicine so would like some time to do some study if someone is willing to entertain my little girl for a few hours a week.

    We would love to learn about your country and culture. Help prepare traditional foods you may have grown nostalgic for being away from home. I love to prepare food, we generally eat healthy and are a vegetarian house who like to eat organic and local where possible. Raw nut slices and a huge variety of healthy meals will be provided.

    Ideally we are seeking a female to stay with us who would like to entertain our baby for a few hours a day so we can be more productive and she can have a friend to entertain her. A vegetarian would be great but not necessary.
