  • Description


    We are dyed in the wool Queenslanders and have mountains of information on the Cairns area and the rest of Oz. I have traveled extensively and lived overseas for a number of years. I'm a full time shift worker in the health sector and my father lives with me in Cairns in Far North Queensland. We are less then 5km from the CBD and walking distance to a shopping centre and close to bus stops. We regard ourselves as being very relaxed, sociable and enjoy meeting people from all places and walks of life. The house is comfortable with a large vegetable garden, some fruit trees, a small pool, a fire pit and wood fired pizza oven. My main hobby is dog training, competitions, giving lessons and judging. I'm always happy to chat and advise about this. We are a meat eating household and I like to bake. We have 3 indoor/outdoor well-behaved dogs, an indoor cat and some chickens. We are mostly looking for someone to help for my dad, by lending a hand with renovations to his separate house, also in the neighbourhood. There may be some gardening as well.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    Cairns offers a huge range of activities and experiences being the gateway to the tropics... rainforest, the Great Barrier Reef etc. etc. We both have an interest in travel and world events, learning how things work and enjoy meeting people from different backgrounds and environments. I spent 3 years living overseas when I was younger and loved it, dad has travelled extensively throughout Australia.

    We are looking for help for my father by lending a hand with some renovations to the house. He has the skills, but an extra pair of hands is always welcome, so no buildings skills are needed (but would be very welcome). There may be limited gardening as well. Work is generally from around 8am to 12pm, which leaves the entire afternoon and weekends free for you to explore this delightful area of Oz. We are happy to be flexible in this regard.

    Volunteers will be provided with their own comfortable furnished room with a shared bathroom. We have cereals for breakfast, cold cuts/sandwich for lunch and one hot meal for dinner in the evening. We are meat eaters, enjoy a range of different cuisine and always happy to try new things. Actually, we really like to try new things so bringing your cooking skills into the kitchen would be welcomed. We will consider individual dietary needs.
