We are a busy young family living in rural Queensland Australia. We have two little boys who are 3 and 4 and both attend daycare full time. They are very active children, always happy, playing and wanting to be outside. They also love to engage with others so please expect that they will want to have fun with you. We also have an 8-year-old daughter who is with us on alternate weekends.
I work in a remote Indigenous community and my husband is a farmer. Although we are busy we really enjoy doing things as a family in our downtime and you'll often have the chance to join us for a swim, trip to the park etc. We are also lucky to live around many beautiful national parks and bushwalks are a must-do if you come to the area the views are beautiful. We also live approximately 2hours from the beach and enjoy a weekend away at the beach when we can.
Babysitting and creative play
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We'd like it if you could become apart of our family and also share your culture with us. we are excited for our children to experience your culture and hopefully, we can show you some wonderful aspects of rural Australian life also. With my husband being a farmer there will be ample opportunities for you to visit a rural property and see native Australian wildlife, being locals we can also show you all the hidden treasures that most travellers would not get to experience. we are surrounded by some incredible national parks, natural waterfalls and mountains such as the beautiful Bunya Mountains
We're looking for general household help mostly, cooking, cleaning, help to organise, maybe some projects in the garden or DIY projects. The children will attend childcare and will not be your responsibility but we are wanting someone who like children and will develop a relationship with them. occasional babysitting would also be appreciated.
