  • Description


    Hi I am looking for someone to do some painting in an old house in a lovely part of Hobart. Also to do some landscaping and gardening. The house is close to the CBD but also near to lovely bushwalks etc. with a lovely view. You will have your own room. I do provide meals but you will fix your own breakfast and lunch as I am at work. Require a total of 20 hours per week to do as suits you.

    Its been a joy meeting people and exchanging ideas with people from all over the world. I have learned so much from them. I am an artist so I enjoy sharing that with people and am also interested in sharing the history of tasmania with travellers if they are interested.

    Founded in 1804 by Colonel David Collins, Hobart is the second oldest city in Australia. It grew out of the penal settlement on the island at Risdon Cove, eight kilometres up river, which was founded in 1803 and abandoned five months later for the present site of Hobart. The city has many beautiful historic buildings and precincts, especially in the area around the river. There are many fine examples of Georgian and Victorian architecture, such as Salamanca Place, which has a terrace of warehouses dating back to the whaling days of the 1830s. Nearby Battery Point, the original seamen's quarters of the city and Macquarie and Davey Street offer more than 60 buildings classified by the National Trust.

    Salamanca Market - a major Saturday morning attraction, for locals and visitors alike. Situated in front of large sandstone warehouses which have been converted into a maze of craftsmen's workshops, giftshops, restaurants and other 'artsy-crafty' shops. These warehouses were mostly built to service 19th century whaling. Market stalls are one of the cheapest places to buy Tasmanian timber products.

    Battery Point, behind Salamanca Market. This area is very old and full of interesting architecture. Many of these buildings are built in the area's golden sandstone, giving the older parts of the city a warm golden glow.

    Botanical Gardens.- Beautiful location about fifteen minutes walk from the city centre. A must see attraction is the sub Antarctic garden. Its like walking into a freezer full of plants!
