My name is Sue, I am a nurse and I live on 5 acres in the countryside surrounded by the D'Aguilar mountains in a town called Samford, the first rural town outside of Brisbane (only 28km from Brisbane to be precise). I used to do a lot of traveling and backpacking when I was younger but nowadays I spend a lot of my free time cycling, catching up with friends and working in the garden.
My two sons Andrew 25 and Robbie 24 are keen travelers and come over often to help me in the garden so they are also a big part of my life and will be over several times. Both speak German and Andrew also speaks Chinese and Robbie also speaks French and Russian so they would both love to improve their language skills.
I also have a Poodle called Plod but don't worry he is a full size dog and very calm so if you would like to take him on walks he would love that as sometimes I work late nights at the hospital.
I am ideally looking for workawayers who aren't afraid to do get their hands dirty and I also require a 2 week minimum stay. There is a pool and you can choose to stay in either the house or the detached granny flat. So if you would like to help me and meet my family please don't hesitate to contact me and I look forward to meeting some interesting and wonderful people.
