  • Description


    We are a young professional couple with 3 gorgeous school aged children (5-12yrs) who would like more time on weekends with our kids. At the moment we spend this time ironing, food prepping, home maintenance etc and would love some help keeping on top of it. It would be awesome if guests were able to help with homework etc of an afternoon but not essential.

    We have thoroughly enjoyed having international workawayers in our house pre covid and are exciting to see the world opening up again. In fact, we are about to fly to see our first workawayers in her home country of Germany. It has been a great experience for us and for our kids.
    We have a separate living and kitchen area downstairs so guests can have privacy when doing your own thing.

    I am Australian and my husband is English but also fluent in German and French. We love showing people around or giving ideas of lovely day trips. If we find the right person/people we would also be willing to loan the car for use on weekends. My family grew up with droves of exchange students so would be lovely to have different cultures under our roof again. Beautiful spots to consider on our doorstep... Moreton Island, Fraser Island, Mount Cootha, South bank, Gold Coast... The list is endless!!

    We are a young family of dad, mum and three kids (10, 12 and 5rs old) who live in a large house north of Brisbane. I know we are biased but I'd describe our kids as super easy, happy kids who are probably a bit fed up with overworked parents :). The home is an idyllic location with train access to Brisbane city, a lovely local 'village' to explore and endless beach front walks. We are open to a solo female or travelling couple who are able to help out with basic household tasks and some supervision of the children. We also have two very cute dogs who would love some additional company. The rest of the time you are pretty much be free for you to plan local trips / adventures independently or we can take you on day trips etc as we have done with previous workawayers. We are relatively new to workaway but had a fantastic first experience felt like we added an extra member to our family. Ideally if it is a good 'fit' between worker and us and ideally (but not essential) you can stay as long as you like. There are no strict time frames though but minimum of one month.
