  • Description


    Needing a house sitter from 8 - 19 May.

    G’day, my name is Sandi. I am a retired gardener, keen fisherman and touring cyclist. I am developing my retirement retreat set on three acres overlooking the rural village of St Marys and Break O'Day valley. St Marys has all the essentials of life and close to the east coast and surrounding national parks and bushlands. My life is relaxed, content, yet full of excitement.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Life is a two way street. You only get back what you give. I like art, cooking, dogs, fishing, reading, a diverse range of music, discussing world events, the natural environment, quiet times, meeting people, sharing stories and long distance bicycle touring. Most importantly, I am open to all cultural mixes.

  • Help


    Please bring some common sense, positive attitude and a willingness to help with what ever is priority. Some practical skills would be fantastic. Current projects include construction of retaining walls, frog ponds, pathways, fencing, new plantings, garden mulching and general maintenance.

    Visitors are welcome to join me fishing, walking, drives throughout my region or just sitting on the veranda soaking up the view. St Marys is well positioned to explore the east coast, midlands, Launceston and North East region of Tasmania and is serviced daily by Carlow's Coaches from Launceston.
