  • Description


    We are a family of five. Myself (Deanne), husband Shane (we are in our mid to late 30s), and our children, aged 8, 5 and 3. We also have a dog. We live in sunny Queensland, just 20 minutes (by car) to Brisbane City. We are a friendly bunch who are keen to have a chat and welcome you into our family for the duration of your stay. We are flexible and will try our best to accommodate any needs you may have. In our spare time we enjoy watching a movie at home, spending time playing with the kids and getting out and about as a family. We only consider female Workawayers who are travelling alone. Must be non-smoking.

  • Help


    Are you friendly? Good with kids and like to play? Motivated, mature and helpful? We are seeking help with the running of our household. Your tasks will focus on general cleaning (bathrooms, floors, kitchen, general tidying up, washing) some meal preparation (dinners) and help with the children. We might also ask you to help with the odd job like gardening, going to the shops, or spring cleaning depending on needs and availability. We requires Workawayers to stay for a minimum of four weeks. Three days per week I will be at work (Shane works five days per week) and the kids attend school or daycare. On these days we'd love some help in the mornings getting the kids ready and out the door on time. If you get the basic jobs done early, you are free to go off and explore for the whole day if you like. During school holidays, we might ask you to look after the kids for the days I am at work - we can work this out before we finalise anything.

    Brisbane is an amazing city full of wonderful pockets to explore. You can enjoy trips to Brisbane city, including Southbank, all via public transport next to our house. We live opposite a nature reserve and park and close to a state forest with bike/walking tracks. Our suburb is full of parks offering a natural feel if you're keen to explore in your free time. You can catch a bus to a large shopping centre for anything from shopping to dining or entertainment such as the movies or ten pin bowling.
    We are friendly people who believe in treating others with respect and we expect the same in return. During the week, two of our children attend school five days per week. I work part time and on these days, our youngest attends daycare 5 days per fortnight. If you are interested, please contact us for more information. We would love to hear from you!
