***We would love to have some helpers starting in September, no availability until then.

We are a young newlywed couple who just moved out into a big house in the pioneer valley. It's a gorgeous rural property surrounded by cane fields and nestled in amongst the Eungella Range. There's plenty to see and do around here if you enjoy the outdoors. We love to get out as often as possible to visit Finch Hatton gorge and Eungella National Park, which are both just a hop skip and a jump away! The city of Mackay is only a 40 minute drive from here and there will be plenty of opportunities to get in.

I myself have been a helper all over Australia for the past 2 years (I'm a Canadian, eh), but since snagging me this wiley aussie have decided to "settle down" and start planting some roots of my own. We are both fairly well traveled and love the company of fellow travelers. Since I have been lucky enough to have the opportunity to share homes with so many wonderful families throughout my travels, both myself and Lachlan are excited to return the hospitality I've been shown, not to mention play tour guides around the hidden gems this area of queensland has to offer.

As far as the help needed goes, we would only need help with basic duties around the house and in the yard. We'd be very flexible with the total hours of help throughout the week in exchange for food and accommodation. If you'd like to put more time in some days and have a few days off on the weekend for example, that wouldn't be a problem. There's a baby on the way (yay!) and since Lachlan is often working away from home it would really just be nice to have an extra hand with the daily hum drummings and of course plenty of time to do whatever strikes your fancy! As a helper, you would have your own room within the house. The house itself is fairly big, and there is one bathroom for everyone to share. Although we don't have wifi throughout the house, we have gone to great lengths to make sure that there is at least excellent coverage for all of your mobile devices within the home. If you have a car, that would be ideal so that you can make trips anywhere anytime you like, otherwise excursions going back and forth from town and elsewhere will be limited to when Lachlan's car is available.

We're both really open to all kinds of characters from all walks of life, as long as you can understand that there will be a baby. If you have any experience with kids that would obviously be a huge help! We're not opposed to having a few drinks, in fact you would find yourself in good company, just as long as you can be considerate of our little one and our need to create a safe and peaceful environment.

Please get in touch if you're interested in sharing our little slice of heaven! Look forward to hearing from you!

Emma and Lachlan
