    Hello, we are a married couple who live in a beautiful little town called Swifts Creek Victoria next to a gorgeous flowing creek we have 3 children 2 dogs and a cat we are looking for 1 person for 1-2 week stay we offer a private room (shared common areas and bathroom) with a double bed and free wifi / internet, accomodation and meals in exchange for 4-5 hours of help a day with 2 days off a week. We live 4-5 hours out of Melbourne. there is a shop pub and cafe nearby and everything is within walking distance. The town itself is pretty quiet and has a population of 450 it’s 20 minutes drive from a small town and 1.5 hours from Bairnsdale. We do go to Bairnsdale once a week for a big grocery shop so can arrange to pick up at the Train station and a bus does come this way. We are an hour from the beach and an hour from the snow and Mount Hotham. You are always welcome to join us on family outings and activities. We are sheep farmers and just require some help with household duties such as cooking, cleaning, very basic yard care and childcare for our 3 children (mostly childcare ) if this sounds like a little getaway then please email me for more info

    Cheers from Marlee and Andrew
