  • Description


    Hello Workawayers, we are Padma (Australian citizen), Arthur (Dutch citizen) and Zoë (born in August 2018). We moved from Amsterdam to Sydney in late 2018 and are in the process of starting our own business in the vegan food services sector.

    We live in Epping (northern suburbs), in a brand new four-bedroom house, surrounded by trees and birds, 200m from Terrys Creek nature reserve and 1km from Epping town center and railway station (24 minutes to Sydney Central Station by express train).

    We are looking for an English or Dutch speaking female Workawayer with babysitting experience to look after Zoë and help a bit in the house. We would ideally like someone who would like to stay at least one month, but will consider anyone staying at least two weeks. We are vegan and therefore a vegan person would be preferred but otherwise we would welcome someone who is happy to eat vegan food only in the house.

    See the calendar on this page for availability.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Our house’s proximity to a railway/metro station and bus stops provides an excellent opportunity to explore Sydney and experience the city's lifestyle. There is also the opportunity for the Workawayer to try a variety of different vegan food and learn how to cook some meals if they want.

  • Help


    Looking after our baby daughter, Zoë (playing with her, going for walks, feeding her, changing nappies, etc), performing some general household duties and possibly some help in the kitchen with meal preparation). Most of the time we will be home too (working from home).

    What else ...

    Our house is 200 meters away from Terrys Creek, a beautiful hiking trail that leads all the way to Lane Cove National Park. Epping railway and metro stations are just over a kilometer away, making our house an excellent base for exploring Sydney and its surroundings.
