Hi! We are an Australian/ French Canadian couple in our 20s who have recently bought our first home on the beautiful Mount Tamborine, Queensland. Located 35 minutes from the Gold Coast and about 1 hour from Brisbane. We enjoy sharing stories, playing music, cooking and eating delicious dinners and spending time in nature.
DIY and building projects
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We have been so fortunate to meet and connect with many international friends who now feel like family. This has been throughout our own travels, as well as in our home. Workaway provides an opportunity to share, connect and exchange and meeting new and wonderful people only brings out the best in everyone.
When staying with us we would love for you to feel comfortable with us and become part of the family, to cook and eat with us, work with us, and any days that we are off and have the time to head down to the beach for a surf, or into the mountain on a hike we would be happy for you to come along!
We are looking for self motivated and respectful guests to help us with a range of jobs. We would ask for 5 hours help a day/ 5 days a week. Of course it wouldn't be an issue to do a couple of longer days and then take a few days off to go and explore!
Some skills that would help us progress with our renovation are:
Carpentry & wood working
Landscaping/ permaculture experience
Handy man/ handy woman
Cooking, cleaning and general house maintenance
Brush cutting/ planting
Clean & Tidy
Non Smokers Only
