we currently need helpers Now for April. But only for about 5 days
Please read below!!!

We live in beautiful Evandale and need some help around our garden.

Evandale is 15 minutes out of Launceston- 3 minutes from the airport . It is a heritage town full of beautiful houses , cafes, market , pubs. It is surrounded by nature and peaceful living .

We have heaps of fruit trees , flowers, herbs, outside bath which is lovely under the night Sky!

We eat meat, we drink occasionally , we have a 15 week old baby called Elliot.Non smokers only please! This is non negotiable, we don't want the smoke smell in bedding. We have two dogs and two cats so you need to be able to handle that.

Depending on what is happening at our house we ask: 4 hours work per day per person and in exchange you will have completely your own space- a separate studio in our garden, overlooking mountains and farm land , with couches, queen bed, fridge, gas cook top and a piano! Bathroom In house and food to make your breakfast, lunch and then a shared dinner. You need to provide your own snacks and drinks.

You will get accomodation and wifi (not for watching movies or downloading but for email, facebook) and use of laundry, shower /bath.

Because we are a busy family we don't have a lot of time to take people to tourist places so you need to be happy to do your own thing when you are not working. If we go into town you are welcome to get a lift with us there and back but we can't take you when you want to go if we aren't going but there are buses you can use.

Also , because we have a young baby, we tend to go to bed by 9pm so we aren't able to socialise a lot due to needing to rest. We really need you to be able to be comfortable in your company. If you want an exchange where you spend lots of time with the host this would not be for you sorry !This exchange is best for independent travelers.

Public transport is not great in Evandale so if you want lots of things to do you might get a bit bored! it's a perfect exchange for someone who likes peace, small village life, time to relax, reflect, read and just 'be',

We have bikes you can use as well. There is a local river to swim in.


we are in our 40's and love to garden, read, watch movies, very passionate about social justice issues- we have both set up a number of organisations working with asylum seekers and refugees. Bel is a counsellor in the area of refugees and asylum seekers and has worked a lot in the area of LGBTIQ.

We are a quiet couple, focused on leaving the world a better place and raising our son to be kind, aware and accepting of people. We believe that we all have a responsibility to help those who do not have the privileges we have. Our passion is social justice.
