We are a young family with 3 little girls. 6, 4 and 1. We live in a lovely old house in Blackheath in the Blue Mountains, 5 minutes walk from the train station and 10 mins walk from town.
We have a dog named Ben who loves everyone, and 5 chickens who give us fresh eggs.
Having travelled a lot before having babies we like meeting others currently on their own adventures. I'm a stay at home mum and my husband works from home, travelling occasionally. So we don't often get to meet new people.
We are a family with coeliacs, so are very gluten free friendly. We mostly cook all our meals, the kids love trying new foods.
My father is from the Netherlands, and our favourite thing is speculaas spice to use in our cooking, so any dutchies armed with speculaas spice are extra welcome!

Help around the house
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
Travellers can use our house as a base to explore the amazing Blue Mountains, I'm happy to drop you off and pick you up at popular bush walks and look outs.
Travellers can use my washing machine, use our internet to catch up on email and FaceTime with family. I love sewing so can repair any travel worn clothing.
You get to experience how a busy Australian family lives, walk with us to school, emerse yourself in country town life and experience our close knit community.
I would love help with the kids and pets in the afternoons and evenings when my husband is travelling. The rest of the day would be yours to relax or sightsee.
