  • Description


    Hey Foodies/Vegan travellers,

    Our property is located in Mackay which is in Central Queensland Coast area. Mackay is a stunning area with beautiful beaches and very nice places for walking and swimming. Mackay is less well known to tourists so you can fully enjoy all its beauty without the crowds. Airlie Beach is nearby if you want to mix with fellow travellers or do tourist adventures.

    We love food and cooking. We prepare beautiful and delicious vegan meals every day. We have a diverse menu and we can guarantee 100% that you will have a diet rich in diverse nutrients and free of any animal products. My daughter is a very strict vegan and we follow her in this lifestyle because of the health benefits and we love the food too! No brainer!

    My eldest daughter is a psychology student/artist and my youngest daughter is a musician so naturally, we are totally connected with local arts and culture.

    We offer a happy and safe environment in a family home. We make a big effort to make you feel welcome and show you around. Our place is extremely suitable for female travelers and your safety is assured.

    We have an adorable puppy dog, named Oscar, He is a friendly playful pup who loves going out for walks and exploring'

    Please note that I am very interested in learning French and would love to meet people who are willing to share their knowledge of the French language. My French is at an intermediate level, I am also passionate about teaching English so I am really happy to help you as much as possible refine your English skills. As a language learner myself I have a good knowledge of English grammar which helps in explaining concepts.

    We are hugely safety conscious and for this reason you will not be exposed to any work outdoors in the heat. I try my hardest to make the work as varied and interesting as possible so you can develop new skills and talents. If we work outdoors it is either early in the morning or afternoon. The work will involve domestic work and gardening. We strictly follow the workaway guidelines.

    You will be offered a very safe home environment in Mackay. We live very close to the cbd so you can take a quick bike ride to the swimming lagoon. You will have your own private room but it is small in size.
