I am seeking a couple or 2 energetic people to housesit for a period from August 30th - September 19th or 20th on small 20 acre 3 bedroom farmlet cottage. This cottage is on stand alone solar power with a backup generator. Maryborough is in the heart of the historical central goldfields region and there may be an opportunity to view Kangaroos in their natural environment in the area surrounding the farmlet. The historical goldmining cities of Bendigo and Ballarat are close by and the use of a Ford Courier 4 wheel drive ute and GPS would be available fo use so applicants will need to have an international licence. Insurance is not available and applicants will drive at thier own risk. Internet is available but applicants will require own mobile phone with global access if they require use of a telephone.Cottage has cable televison which is available on a sunny day or in the evenings (due to Solar Power). Cottage has solar and gas hot water system. Maryborough is available by train from Melbourne. Applicants will be met at train station and taken to the farmstay cottage and returned to the Maryborough train station on the 19 or 20th September.

The duties of housesitting will be to care for 2 cats, 1 dog, several sheep (Should not equire any work) ducks and chickens. This will take aprox 1 hour of work per day. Work would include the painting of the outside of the cottage over 3 weeks. Will leave the fridge and freezer stocked and appllicants will be required to purchase own food while owners away, but will be welcome to the sock in the fridge and freezer. Applicants must be extremely clean and must be able to produce a good clean and tidy paint job on the outside of the cotage.

Only clean applicants need apply!!
