    Hi
    We are family of two adults and three children who live in the very pretty bushland of Crafers in the Adelaide Hills. We currently have two koalas in our garden, an echidna at our post box and a very big visiting kangaroo. A 20 min drive, straight down the freeway or bus will take you into Adelaide city. We have spent the past two years travelling the world (visiting 28 countries) and meeting lots of workawayers, so now that we are settling down again we'd LOVE to meet some travellers. The bus stop is about a half hour walk so if you don't have your own car we are happy to drop you there when we can, and pick you up as long as it's not too late!

    You'll be living in Australian bushland, with the chance to see some wonderful wildlife. You will learn how to take care of native bushland. I'll be speaking English and and I can help with written grammar if needed as I am a teacher.

    Ok the work...we basically live on a 2 acre bush block and need some help tidying it up. We need to drag logs and dead wood to a wood pile (we have been doing this ourselves but some help would be great!) and tidy up the garden and bushland. I need help cleaning the house - changing beds, wiping down bathroom, vaccuming, and hopefully you cooking your favourite meal for us (if you happy too) ! The house is clean so it's about doing a bit every day to keep it that way.
    We would love to share our evening meals and hear about your travels.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We are a few minutes drive from Mount Lofty Summit (Lookout) ,Mount Lofty Botanic Gardens (these are beautiful!) and the Cleland Conservation Park (where you can cuddle a koala). The famous German village of Handorf is a 10 minute drive - it's a great place to order German beer (or Australian) and eat some good German food. Adelaide city is about 25 min bus ride. (we can drop you at bus terminal) and the gorgeous beaches of Adelaide about 25 minutes away. We are surrounded by amazing vineyards and great places to eat. Quaint villages of the Adelaide Hills including Stirling, Aldgate and Bridgewater (with its historic mill and excellent pub) are only a few minutes away. McLaren Vale the famous wine region is less than a half hour drive too, so with us as your base, you will be able to see so much. Oh yes, I forgot to say that if you are a keen cyclist this area is where the Tour Down Under rides though. So lots of amazing scenery to see on your bike. And a big downhill cycle to the city centre on a bike path.

    We are a non smoking family, so we wouldn't allow smoking in the house...because we are in a bush fire prone area, we would have to ask that if smoking outside you are EXTREMELY careful when extinguishing cigarettes as the bushland is very dry at the moment. We have three young children so we would ask that you don't swear when they are around (unless a big spider falls on you!) ...and as they have school each day we'd ask you not to make too much noise after they go to bed. Oh yes and I would like help clearing up after each meal eg help load the dishwasher and return kitchen to clean :) As the saying goes 'many hands make light work!' (most people help but just thought I'd say upfront :) We're a pretty relaxed, fun family, so just come and enjoy meeting a well travelled family who'd love to suggest 'must see' places to visit....and hopefully you can share with us your fav places!
