  • Descrição


    We are back in Brisbane (Queensland) and occasionally spend time at the beach house 2 hours south of here.

    Thanks for your interest in our program - please check our calendar before sending an email as we are often fully booked. We have recently moved back to Brisbane but also spend time at the beach house in northern New South Wales. Our main project at the moment is reinvigorating our garden and hopefully creating a bit of a productive garden. Being back in Brisbane means we are again very conveniently located close to Brisbane CBD with easy access to the train and busses but we are lucky to have a reasonable back yard!

    Our volunteering is flexible and we try and make sure your time is spent productively but also allows time off for you to explore the area. In the Summer starts are early to avoid the heat so if you are not early risers (or happy to be temporarily) then this might not be the workaway experience for you. You can expect to help up to 5 hours a day though at times, we work short days / encourage time off so you can explore the local area. In my spare time, I am a nurse and a breeder of Australian Labradoodles so we will also need help with our dog breeding program when we have puppies. We welcome enthusiastic volunteers who might want to spend some quality time in the outdoors, who are not afraid to get their hands dirty and want to help rear our puppies. In the past we have a clutch of chickens who like to free range and keep us in supply of yummy eggs... but sadly, none at present.

    If you have specific handyman/ woman skills or e-publishing skills please let us know.

    Oportunidades de intercâmbio cultural e aprendizado

    Over the years we have been involved with Workaway our volunteers have learnt lots about dogs, dog training and the importance of early puppy socialisation. They have expanded their appreciation of the time and effort that goes into a quality dog breeding program and some have even seen puppies being born - we don't promise that experience though :) In general we feel people share good food and conversation and heaps of puppy cuddles - many people miss their own dogs when they are travelling and we are happy to share ours with you!

  • Ajuda


    Help ranges from
    - Gardening: yard maintenance, working the compost heaps, planting seasonal productive gardens
    - Dog breeding program: general caring for our dogs and newborn puppies, walking dogs, socialising puppies, cleaning our puppy areas. We are happy to teach you about what we do.

    You can also assist with photography, website stuff and general household cleaning / cooking.

    We have a spare room in our home and guest bathroom. We are 30 min walk from Brisbane CBD and about 10 min walk from the local shopping precinct. There is a regular bus service that runs from nearby and the train and river ferries are handy too.

    There is plenty to do in your time off .... cinema, parks, pool, urban beach (man-made) cycle tracks and walking tracks, rock climbing.....

  • Algo mais...

    Algo mais...

    Volunteers need to be self motivated once they have been shown what is required and be mature and responsible in the care of young animals.
    Our Labradoodles are non-shedding however as we have other pets, this opportunity is not suitable for people who have allergies to animals, especially pet hair. Nor is it a task suitable for people who are timid or afraid of dogs.
    Our home is a non-smoking home. For meals, volunteers are welcome (and encouraged) to share the cooking. Basic breakfast, tea and coffee is always available and we have a well stocked pantry. Happy to accommodate vegetarians or those with specific dietary needs.
