We are a family of husband and wife plus our son who is 18 years old. Everyone in our family has travelled throughout Europe and Asia. We offer a happy and warm family experience and would also like to show our volunteers our favourite things to do around Southeast Brisbane. We have had German, American and French backpackers stay and have enjoyed their company . We also have a cat and chooks.
Best if you have a car as we are not very close to public transport
DIY and building projects
Help around the house
Our guests will experience Australian hospitality by getting to know our family. We will involve them in our family life and show them around our city and nearby areas.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We live in South East Brisbane on 2.5 acres. We need help in the garden to weed, rake leaves, spread mulch, a little digging and prune things. We also have some odd jobs like helping to clean windows, gurney work, leaf blower around the outside of the house. Sometime a small amount of house work would also be good.
We have a new modern detached guest room with 2 single beds, a mini fridge and separate bathroom. You get your own patio facing the warm sunshine and a beautiful serene garden. The family house is next to the guest accommodation. You can have your meals with us in the main house.
The area we live in is about 30 minutes by bus to the city. If you do not have a car the walk takes about 10 minutes to the bus stop. The suburb is very rural but very close to the city.
