We are a young family with four (4) fun, robust children whom love the outdoors. We are situated 1 hour west of Toowoomba and only 30 minutes from Dalby on the beautiful Darling Downs!

The school year has just begun and we would love some help indoors and outdoors around the house.

Mum works part-time from home and also in Dalby, Dad “lives” on the farm and works long, crazy hours a lot of the time. Hence Mum doesn’t get all of the extra things done which need doing as we are in Dalby four (4) days a week between work and childrens' sport commitments. The two older children each have activities after school with the younger ones also participating in swimming lessons. If you are a self motivated person or travelling pair we would love for you to come and be part of our Aussie life.

It would probably be of benefit if you were able to stay for a minimum of two (2) weeks. We offer your own room for a single with a shared bathroom, internet and food. Otherwise if you would prefer to have your meals with us and stay in a vacant farm house with its own bathroom it is an option. (This option would benefit those helpers who have their own gear as the house does not have any furniture other than a fridge.)

There will be ample opportunities to accompany us to both Dalby and Toowoomba to experience the many sights around.

Help with the household chores, in the garden, cooking two (2) nights during the week and some babysitting is required. A drivers licence would be great to help out with the bus run for the more mature person. A good repour with children is essential.

Our family also includes 2 dogs, chooks and fish.

You will even get to see kangaroos on the farm!
