We have availability for helpers from now to 18 Dec.

We live 20 mins out of Hobart in a rural area at the base of Mt wellington. We have a large bush property. We are a well traveled international family (Australia/Canada/French) looking for a helping hand with property maintenance (Gardening, Painting, brush-cutting, spraying, wood-fire collecting) and general housekeeping and childminding. There are plenty of different options depending on what your strengths are.

We are an active family that enjoys working together outdoors and meeting other travelers. We are looking for energetic and cheerful people who would enjoy physical work (the property is on a slope so even basic tasks are more demanding) and working along side us in a family focused positive atmosphere. We tend to work full days then have fully days off in a row so so can go visit this lovely island. This is our 5th year with helpx and we feel like we have perfected the helpx stays so it works for all concerned. Be WARNED MOST OF OUR HELPERS WANT TO STAY LONGER IN TASSIE. We recommend a stays in Tassie of 1 month minimum and 2 if you really want to have enough time get the best out of helpx and get to the tucked away tassie spots.

We have a 5 year old daughter Manon and a 3 year old son Sylvain. We speak English, French and basic Spanish. The children are bilingual and we like to increase the amount of French they hear, so if you speak French that is a bonus.

We will prioritise French speaking Helpers

We prefer stays of min 2 weeks as the children get quite attached to people staying with us. We are happy if you want to come work with us then go visiting Tassie for a few days or weeks and return.

We have a separate mobile home as help x accommodation it can accommodate up to 4 people so people traveling together are encouraged to apply. Singles travelers are welcome but we will probably have other helpx join you for company and work efficiency. Having your own transport will certainly be an advantage as our car space is limited, but we can still manage if you don't have one.

This would be a good base to explore Hobart and the surrounding area as we are close to Mt Wellington bushwalk tracks, sporatic bus access to Hobart is a 5 mins drive away and we are happy to take you to the bus when needed.

Please send initial contact via Helpx website. Include your profile name, phone number, dates available and proposed length of stay. You are welcome to follow up by text to ensure we have seen your initial request.
