  • Description


    We are a young family who have just moved to beautiful Port Macquarie in New South Wales, australia. We joined the Workaway community a few months ago and have loved the experience so far!

    My husband Sorn is an Indian heritage Aussie dad and runs a small software business. I am a Belgian Australian mum and clinical psychologist. We have two beautiful children - Nina (3) and Hugo (1.5). We also have a border collie Maple who is very much part of the family. We love nature, music, reading and quality time together.

    Our home is backing rainforest and an easy walk through rainforest to Shelly beach.

    We just moved to this home and need help with renovation projects around the house. Sorn is pretty handy and can guide you on things you might want to learn

    The projects are many and We can offer you tasks based on your strengths and interests!
