    We are a family of 5, with 3 grown up girls who live away most times of the year. Our property is located 40km from our closest town, Taroom off a bitumen road. We, David and Sarah, and are looking for someone, preferrably a couple, to come and caretake. We are a sociable family and are keen to welcome travelers and let you experience our slice of the Australian bush. We are 10km from the local weir and 20km from The Isla Gorge National Park. For further information about the Taroom shire please google, there is plenty to see!

    What else ...

    We enjoy the outdoor life and have a great environment for experiencing the Australian bush. Nearby, within 5-30mins drive, are national parks and multiple scenic attractions and water holes. There is a bus service to Taroom from Brisbane and Rockhamton but your own transport would be an advantage.
