We are a family of four, mum, dad and two boys 15 and 11 living on one acre in outer area of Townsville, North Queensland. We also have three dogs and many chickens. We have a beautiful property which backs on to the Ross River just down from the Ross River dam. We are wanting our property to be as much as possible in its natural state and have planted many trees and are lucky to already have many big old trees on our property. We work or attend school and have other responsibilities so our property at the moments needs a bit of attention after the wet season as well as other gardening projects we've began. Also due to illness we would love some help around the house just housework etc. We have done a lot of travelling ourselves prior to settling down and having a family so we have lots of interesting stories we could share.
