We live in Yeppoon across the road from the beach, with views of Great Keppel Island.
My little family consists of myself, Jenny, my husband, Mick and our two sons, Jack and Peter who are 10 and 11 years old.
We have a mowing business.
We would be very excited to meet a traveller looking for somewhere to stay and help out around the home.
As we have travelled quiet a bit ourselves, we understand that sometimes the best experience is staying in a local home with a local family. We would be happy to take you out with us if we are going somewhere.
Enjoy the café scene and the night life in local Yeppoon, just 2.5km away.

The weekends are your own time to do as you please.

Friday night is traditionally movie and pizza night with the family...unless you wish to head out on the town and check out the night life.
We love to have a BBQ with our neighbours which you will always be welcome to of course.
