  • Description


    Our family lives on a mice cropping, cattle and sheep farm 80km north west of Goondiwindi in Southern Queensland. We are a fun loving family that lead pretty busy lives. We are surrounded by animals, beef cattle, horses and our much loved Dogs. Both parents work and we are after someone to fill in gaps so mum can go to work and not worry in the afternoon about who will pick up girls. There will be also many opportunities to go out in the paddock with my husband. Also horses are available to be ridden if you are keen and competent. We are also trying to get our garden started and would love an extra pair of hands.

    Our daughters are 8 and 10 and very independent little people. They just need help with their homework and reading in the afternoons and someone to hang out with if no one is home.
