  • Description


    Come and join us in the beautiful Blue Mountains, Australia, where you can experience all that is to offer in this World Heritage region while lending a helping hand to our family.

    We are a busy family living on nearly half an acre in the mid-Mountains township of Hazelbrook, which is 15-20 minutes from Katoomba, a major tourism centre. We are within walking distance to the train station where you can access many beautiful sights across this region. You can also easily access the City of Sydney as well as other regional centres by train.

    There are several bush walks nearby and you can access views and waterfalls just a short walk from our house.

    We are happy to host non-smokers who are willing to help with a number of specific projects as well as garden maintenance and general house duties.

    Couples or singles are welcome as our accommodation and needs suit both. You will have access to the kitchen as well as your own shower and toilet. We are also keen (amateur) musicians and we have a number of instruments you are welcome to play. Learning languages is also a passion of some of us and we would welcome the opportunity to extend our skills while assisting you in furthering your English skills.
