  • Description


    We are a busy German and English speaking family with 2 kids and a dog and run two businesses from our property - one of which happens to be a Castle - which is a tourist attraction and function venue, a toyshop and an online business.

    I also help run a charity that gifts weddings to the terminally Ill. And we offer a free little pantry to people in need at the front of our property.

    We need help with the house and the housework and the gardens etc.

    The Sunshine Coast encompasses beautiful beaches, surf spots and rural hinterland in southern Queensland, Australia. It stretches from the coastal city of Caloundra, near Brisbane, north to the Cooloola. The climate is temperate and sub tropical. It is a  popular tourist destination for international but also local visitors. You will have some great opportunities to explore and enjoy the area.
