We have recently moved to a lovely 5 acre horse property 20 minutes outside of Hobart. We have a 3 1/2 year old son who is engaging, creative, curious, and funny. We would love help around the property, with gardening, property maintenance, housekeeping, and child care.
We can offer a private bedroom separate from the main house (shared shower and toilet), plus meals. There are lots of walking tracks around the area, and regular bus service in to town. Additionally we often travel into town and are happy to give lifts. We also are new to Tasmania, and would be happy to take you with us on small excursions when we explore the land and sea.
We are looking for someone that would be interested in integrating into our family life for the length of your stay. We would prefer someone with a drivers licence, but that is not essential. Non-smoker preferred.

Cooking / shopping
Help in the house
We have spent a lot of time overseas, and happy to teach English to people for whom English is not a first language. Also will take our helpers out hiking, fishing, and show them a true Australian BBQ!
We recently moved to the property, and need help around the grounds, maintaining, gardening, cleaning, etc. We also plan to do some small building projects, and can use help there. Additionally, we have a young son, and would be grateful for some child care. We are very easygoing, and flexible with respect to the time and schedule. We are happy for you to set your own schedule for the most part. Occasionally there will be time-sensitive jobs, but primarily they can be completed at your leisure.
English, some French, Italian, Indonesian
You will have a room of their own, in a separate building from the main house. You will be invited to become part of the family, participating in meals and family excursions.
