Hi! We are Luke & Anita, live in beautiful NORTHERN TASMANIA.

Our home is in the regional, picturesque city of Launceston overlooking the Tamar river.
An easy stroll from the town centre, stunning Cataract Gorge (popular with rock climbers)
and many beautiful walks.

We are both designer makers, run our own small businesses and are amidst a major
restoration / renovation to our home that was built in 1900 and once 5 flats.

If you would like to come and stay with us and have practical skills to work with
Luke (who is a qualified builder) then we'd love to hear from you!
We have a beautiful new workshop which is set up to fix windows and restore
the odd bit of furniture - perfect if you are a carpenter or cabinet maker.
We are also doing landscaping, bricklaying and painting.

We may be able to to sign your 2nd year working holiday visa 417 (form 1263) by
providing employment and board if you have qualifications / skills in the building and
construction industry. Due to recent changes in legislation we can
no longer sign days for volunteers.

Please bear in mind our home is essentially a construction site and not for the
faint hearted, however, we can offer you premium accommodation
in the newly restored part of our home with your own kitchen.

From time to time there will be trips to our family sheep property 20minutes away
to help with things like lamb marking and collecting firewood from the bush etc.

We have a cat, prefer non-smokers.
