    Hi there

We have 3 children- a boy aged 14, a girl aged 6 and a boy of 2 years. My husband Rob works on the mines and I am a nurse but I am home with the kids at the moment.

  • Help


    I need some help around the house while my husband works away on the mines. Someone who takes initiative! This includes taking the kids to school and their activities, some light housework, cooking and helping in the evenings. Weekends mostly free. Our children are the joy of our home in all their spontaneity so we need volunteers who are patient, understanding and who enjoy children!

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    There are many wonderful activities. Water sports are very popular surfing, windsurfing, paddle boarding, kitesurfing. There are beautiful beaches. You can travel to Kalbarri for the gorges and abseiling or monkey mia for the dolphins, coral bay, beautiful stations, and of course Perth. Please have a look at Geraldton visitors centre online and australiascoralcoast.com. I will be very happy to point you in the right direction and suggest interesting attractions to see.
    There is a bus into town, we also have good bikes you can ride to town along the cycle path along the beautiful beach.
    By the way, I am a vegetarian so this is a great household for vegetarians, but the rest of the household eats meat, so it's the best of both worlds!
