    We are based at Jurien Bay Western Australia, A small coastal country town, located approximately 2.5 hours North of Perth, Western Australia

    This is a great opportunity to be involved with a dynamic Australian family of ocean lovers!
    We are experienced travellers and enjoy swimming/snorkelling (anything ocean) and who like to live life to the fullest.

    We operate a low cost Eco Friendly SeaLion tour company with 2 Boats doing tours.
    We really enjoy the company of other travellers and hope to share this very interesting culture exchange experience with you soon.

    This will be well suited to an Outgoing, Energetic, Fun Loving, Down to Earth person who is after an amazing fast paced Culture Exchange Experience In a Home Away from Home environment.

    In exchange we offer Accommodation, home cooked food, wifi, also along with the occasional day trip over the duration of your stay to see some of the local sights in exchange for some daily help.

    Look forward to hearing from you.
    Warmest regards
