  • Description


    We are a busy family of four children a from 4 yrs to 12 yrs of age. The kids love lots of outdoor activities and spend loads of time on the tennis court with anyone who is willing. I am an energetic Mother in my early 40s who always has plenty on the go including my structured garden and general running of the house. We have a few animals but mostly all pets! Chooks, pet sheep and our elderly dog.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    My children would love to help improve their English as they do lots of talking so would get loads of practice. We live in a lovely, rural community but also not far from a big city so lots of options for them to explore.

  • Help


    My four Children and I have a busy life on a small farm with a big garden. We would like to host someone who likes children and helping Mum! Someone would help out with jobs around the house like in the kitchen garden maybe even helping with some homework. Every day is different but never a dull moment.
