  • Description


    We are a friendly and fun Australian family with two beautiful children aged 8 and 3. We have one English cocker spaniel dog and 3 fluffy friendly cats. We live in a spacious 4 bedroom 2 bathroom home out in a very safe, quiet friendly community. We are living in one of the safest areas in Brisbane with a strong sense of community. Facilities nearby are a lovely swimming pool complex, supermarket, McDonald’s, restaurant, gymnasium. 10 minute walk to the bus stop we are 15 kms to the CBD and only a 30 minute bus ride from one of the best shopping centres in Brisbane. The area we live in has a rural feel to it without being to far from the city and all the action. The bedroom has a queen bed one set of drawers, two bedsides and a large wardrobe. It’s down the other end of the house so private, you would have your own toilet and bathroom that needs to be shared with the children for the bath. There are two living areas with two TVs we have wifi and Netflix.

  • Help


    I really need help with childcare of the two kids, mainly the 3 year old as the 8 year old is in school. The odd job around the house, cleaning, hanging out washing or bringing it in. Maybe walking our beautiful cocker spaniel Bentley from time to time. You really need to love young children and animals.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Lots to do on your time off local bus service runs every 10 minutes into the city or large shopping complex. Local swimming complex in walking distance, take a train to the Gold Coast, explore Brisbane city tourist attractions Southbank etc . We like to have fun and a laugh but we also like to keep a clean and tidy home. We need to vigilant about hygiene and washing and sanitising hands as our youngest son has immune suppression. The only expectation is if you got sick you avoid contact with the youngest child. Kids go to bed about 8pm so would expect reduced level of noise in the house in the evenings to wind down and rest.
