  • Description


    We want someone (or a couple) who is also able to help us in the garden and help us care for our children.

    We have nine year old identical twin girls who attend school. You need to be able to help us get them ready for school and then drive them to school and collect them after school. You must be a good driver!

    We live in a house and we are building a large garden. It is a large area and we need people who are able to help using a brush cutter, lawn mower, weed and collect branches and stack them up for fire piles.

    There is a fairly large swimming pool at the house. We have great food and wine at home and treat you like part of our family. You can borrow our pushbikes and go for bike rides through the bike paths in Brisbane, which is a lovely subtropical city. It is easy to catch a bus into town.

    So if you would like to try living in Brisbane come and join us! But, you have to be used to working outside; we'd prefer someone who has lived or worked on a farm before.

    You should be clean and tidy.

    And you must enjoy cooking and eating good healthy food; it is hard for us to cater for vegetarians, vegans and people who don't eat pork.

    Looking forward to hearing from you.

  • Help


    Giving the children breakfast, driving them to school, picking them up in the afternoon, playing with them and making dinner, doing laundry and tidying their room and the kitchen. They are not very messy and are obedient and for the most part very good natured.

    Cutting up branches, stacking them, moving wood, weeding, pulling out little saplings. Watering and helping to burn wood.

    Putting weeds in a bag, digging holes, and using a whipper snipper (it's not very hard to use a whipper snipper).

    We live in Upper Brookfield, a leafy western suburb approximately 16 km from the city. Brisbane is a lovely place with great weather. You'll never be cold, and you can swim in the pool and get a suntan, and if you want to get fit, you can ride our pushbikes all over Brisbane.
