  • Description


    Hello, we are a small fish farm in the Darwin rural area approximately 35 km from the city centre. Robyn works in the public service while David works in the Aquaculture business. We have very little time for maintenance and gardening and need a bit of help getting our place back into shape.

    More or less there are lots of things to do around here. Basically the gardens need a clean up but there are lots of other jobs around the house and Aquaculture ponds. If you like cooking you are more than welcome to take over the stove but not necessary. We have a young dog that needs exercise daily, and a pet crocodile that can keep you entertained. During the months of October to December it is extremely hot up here so early morning starts are best to avoid the heat of the day.

  • Accommodation


    I have renovated a caravan and there is a small pool to use. While the caravan is not big we have a great veranda with a lounge that you can relax and catch up on family and friends with the Internet.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    There is limited public transport out here so you will need your own transport, if you wish to travel into the city a lot. There is a shopping centre close by and we have bikes or easy walk of 2km. We are close to the stuart highway so Tourist buses will stop to pick up if you wish to look at Litchfield Park or Kakadu.

    Can possibly accept pets

    I have said yes to this question but would need to know all details and if your pet does not get on or upsets our pets or the neighbors animals you will need to move on immediately .
