    Description

    We are a family of four living in a peaceful, friendly town on the beautiful river Murray. We live walking distance from the town and the river where nature lovers will enjoy the peaceful surrounds. We have a lovely studio apartment in a big garden available for the right person to relax and enjoy away from the hustle and bustle.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Visitors may enjoy learning about regional South Australia. We are Australians living a typical Aussie family lifestyle and would enjoy meeting visitors who are keen to immerse themselves in this culture. This area is known for primary production and for river sports such as water skiing and kayaking. The pace of life is relaxed and the weather is almost always sunny, very hot in the summer. There are many outdoor opportunities such as walks and nature watching with many kangaroos, emus, pelicans and other wildlife common in the area.

    We are looking for an individual, couple or family to help us continue learning Spanish and give us an insight into the Spanish-speaking culture they are from. I am a teacher in the local area and I am looking to improve my language skills and for my children to learn some Spanish from another speaker. Some household duties such as household chores or meal preparation may be required as well as tutoring/language learning for myself and my children (5 and 7).

    We have a lovely studio apartment available for the right person to relax and enjoy, away from the hustle and bustle. The studio is separate from the main house and includes a kitchen and bathroom. There is a queen sized bed and 2 pull out couches. We will provide supplies for breakfast and lunch and an evening meal.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We live a fairly quiet family life and would enjoy sharing our home with a person or family who enjoys a chat and wants to see into Australian culture and lifestyle by staying with locals. We have a few pets (dog, cats, rabbit and chickens). There is a daily bus that arrives in our town from Adelaide but no other public transport. We live in easy walking distance to town amenities and the river. Visitors can also catch the bus further upriver to visit other towns. We often drive to Adelaide or upriver for weekends and events. We have not had previous experience with workaway but have enjoyed having guests stay through airbnb.
