  • Description

    Hi all! We're Ellise and Henry, a couple from sunny Newcastle Australia. We consider ourselves an adventurous duo with a love travelling and exploring the world! We are avid hikers and love spending time outdoors.

    In October 2019 we decided to resign from our jobs (solar power engineer (H) / cancer researcher (E)) to travel Australia in our little Toyota Hiace campervan. We converted our van ourselves, picking up a few handy skills along the way. We love the idea of a workaway to experience a different way of life as well the opportunity to learn some new skills! We like to think of ourselves as hard workers willing to give anything a go. We look forward to hopefully meeting you on our next workaway!
