  • Description


    We are a family of 4, our children are young adults and we have parents living next door. We have 2 cheeky dogs, 6 chickens and loads of fish. Our home is a tropical elevated with a backyard jungle with fruit trees, herbs 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 it can be hot work. We love sharing the cooking and tasting new dishes too!

    We are a family of four 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.

  • Help


    We are needing help around the house - primarily cleaning, cooking, renovation and building, gardening and light maintenance. 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 would also be open to 2 hours work for just accommodation. We are seeking practical hands-on helpers.
