    We live in our home at beautiful Peregian Beach on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland. Semi-retired teacher and physiotherapist who would love some help around the house and yard. We both enjoyed “Workaway” travelling around Australia and met some amazing hosts who are now our friends. We love hosting people in our own home and enjoy meeting new people. Thanks, Susie & Sue :)
