***Looking for a friendly workawayer that is already in Australia to help with childcare/ babysitting starting late September for 7/8 weeks. Due to international border closure, you must be in Australia.

Hi we are a busy working family living by the coast on the South Arm Peninsular. Our home is hilltop wooden sanctuary surrounded by trees and a view of the ocean out to the Tasman Peninsular and Betsys Island. There is a walking or mountain bike trail ( Tangara Trail ) behind our house that runs for around 35 kms and there is a surf beach across the road.There are plenty of places to explore and birdlife is abundant.
We love food and cooking and have a fully equipped kitchen.
We pay $250 per week.
If you work with us you will have use of a car, standup paddle boards and mountain bikes and you can work in with my husbands roster to have days off in a row to explore the state. We are 30 minutes from Hobart where you can explore Salamanca , MONA, Cascade Brewery, micro breweries and the many shops and restaurants that Hobart is famous for.

Justin is a wildlife ranger and is a wealth of information about Tasmanian nature and wildlife. We would be able to provide you with information and guide you about the best places to visit. We can provide you with a Parks Pass so you have free camping in any of the national parks.
We also work on ships and go to the Antarctic and Arctic regularly.
I work on a marine research vessel.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We are looking for 1or 2 honest, fun girls or a couple with a "can do "attitude who can look after my 4 year old son named Oscar.
Caring for Oscar includes preparing lunch and some dinners , play, outdoor adventures, craft and playing at the park or beach for example .
I would also ask you to do some light cleaning duties like clothes washing and sweeping or vacuuming when needed. We hope you like cooking as meal preparation is a part of you duties. We have a Coffee expresso maker and a fully equipped kitchen and well stocked pantry. I’m sure you’ll enjoy the view of the Calvert Lagoon and Tasman Peninsular while cooking. We are not vegetarian and enjoy all kinds of food and influences from other countries.
Oscar will be attending kindergarten at the local school which is 5 minutes away on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday so you will have to drop off and pickup at school times. This gives you time off during the week to study or explore!
Oscar also has 2 step sisters that are 7 and 9 years old. Amber and Bronte stay with us 2 nights a week. Although you’ll primarily look after Oscar there may be some times when it will overlap and you’ll have the 3 kids for an hour or 2.
We also have chickens and a miniature pinscher named Tigga! We hope that you like animals and are able to care for them also.
It is important to have a drivers licence. We would need you for around 8 weeks. During that time you will have blocks of days off to go and explore with the use of one of our cars. My husband has 4 days off in a row per fortnight which will allow you some time to really explore beautiful Tasmania.
I will be working away on a marine research ship during this time and my husband will be home before and after work.
You will be paid at the end of your stay for your efforts.
I will be with you for the first week or so of your stay so you can get a feel for our routine and Oscar can get used to you being his carer. I can show you some of the surrounding areas so you can feel confident finding your way around.
Oscar is a happy, confident and playful boy with a keen sense of humour and easy going nature. Watch out he may steal your heart!💓
You will have a large ocean view bedroom and fall asleep to the sound of the ocean. You have a comfortable queen size bed, fridge and Foxtel tv.and kettle so you feel like you have your own retreat at the end of the house. The room is big enough to put a yoga mat down if that’s what you’re in to.
There is so much to explore in Tasmania. The famous Mona art museum, Salamanca Markets, Mount Wellington, Freycinet National and Marine Park, Hastings Caves, white water rafting, The Tarkine, Wineglass Bay, Bruny Island, Cradle Mountain, Ben Lomen, Derby, Boatharbour bay, Sisters Beach and numerous walking and mountain bike trails to name just a few.
We have a walking trail behind our property that goes to the beach. There is an abundance of bird life that visit our house. Blue wrens, scarlet robins, kookaburras, Spotted Pardalotes, yellow tail cockatoos and green rosellas drop in daily.
