We are a family of 5, three children aged 15, 19, 22. Grandparents live next door. We have 2 cheeky dogs, 10 chickens and loads of fish. Our home is a tropical elevated with a backyard jungle and vegetables. We are about to do some renovations to the home, so need practical hardworkers. The garden is always evolving and there is always plenty to do there but can be hot.
We are a family of five with my parents living next door. You will become part of our extended family. Experience life in tropical Australia with locals. We live near coastal reserves and the ocean so the natural environment is very accessible. We are close to bike/walking paths and mountain bike tracks if you enjoy getting out and getting physical. Walking/riding distance to the local shopping centre, markets, beach and bus routes.
We are needing help around the house - primarily renovation and building, gardening and light maintenance, cooking and cleaning. If you have a particular skill let us know as it may be of use. We ask for four hours a day each in exchange for all meals and accommodation and are happy to be flexible how that is work if you would like to also take some time to explore Darwin and the surrounds. We are generous with the food and like to share some mealtimes together. We are seeking practical hands on people who bring a skill. We are not in a position to teach theses skills at this stage.
Accommodation is a cosy airconditioned caravan. Suitable for a couple. We have a beautiful blue pool to cool off in as being the tropics it can get hot.
We live near public transport and have bicycles to borrow. Wifi is available.
Limited internet access

We are smokers
