What else ...
We are walking distance from central Toowoomba which has beautiful parks and gardens, lots of trendy places to eat, shopping centres and nightlife. We also travel frequently to a beautiful location in the countryside for our business which is 40 min from Toowoomba where travellers are welcome to stay amongst nature with beautiful views and great food. Travellers are expected to be sober, clean, tidy and respectful. They can provide their own meals or share with us. You can be expected to be treated like part of our family. This includes assisting with preparing meals, cleaning and washing up. As per Workaway guidelines we would expect up to 20 hours per week per person assisting with our projects. Usually less than this but no more than this.
