  • Description


    Its Just me and the dogs (border collies) living on 7 1/2 acres in a quiet country setting.

    Situated 20min North West of Gympie, beaches are just an hours drive away.

    We (me & the dogs) need help around the property, most of which will be outside, establishing veggie gardens, general maintenance and cleaning, and there may be some projects to do as well. Occasionally we have puppies to look after as well.

    Me I’m a single female working 4 days a week in Gympie, the dogs are Border Collies aging from 4 months to 15yrs, we occasionally have puppies to.

    We are looking for a minimum one week commitment. After then, if it’s working well for all of us, there’s the possibility to stay longer.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You will experience living in a quiet country setting and what maintenance is required for our 7 1/2 acre property... together we can learn about / establish raised vegetable gardens, and plan other projects for the property.

    You will learn about Border Collies, why they do the things they do and how to interact with them in a fun positive way, how to feed them a healthy raw diet, we make all our own food. i like to train them for the sport of Canine Disc, and if you are keen to learn we can teach you how to throw a disc and potentially participate in a weekend competition.

    I also like to create fun things, border collie gate art, customised dog bowls & buckets and other fun things using resin, would be more than happy to share the skills i have.

  • Help


    jobs will include weeding, lawn-mowing, window-cleaning, house cleaning, possibly some cooking, maybe some dog walking/training and any other general maintenance tasks and projects that arise

  • Accommodation


    You can stay in your campervan/caravan on the property, otherwise i have a 17ft caravan for you to stay in, it has a double bed, spacious sitting area & fridge situated close to the house where we would share bathroom and kitchen facilities, although we spend most of our time outdoors, laundry facilities are also outdoors. Food will be provided and we can plan the menu together, while i usually eat quick basic meals i also don't mind cooking and trying new things.
