We are looking for a dynamic couple to help us out for 2-4 months with childcare, house work and farm work on our beef cattle property in between Comet and Rolleston in Central Queensland.
A bit about us:
My husband and I have two young children; a 3.5 year old girl and a 1 year old boy. We live 75kms south east of Comet and 65kms north of Rolleston. We have a few dogs, a cat, some chickens and a small herd of sheep as well as our main herd of beef cattle. We aim to farm our land in a holistic way and are working on a project of renewing our fencing.
We are 130km drive from Emerald, which is our major regional town; it has a domestic airport and major shopping centres. We are also about a 2 hour drive to the beautiful Carnarvon Gorge National Park.
What we are looking for:
We are looking for a couple to fill one role of helping me in the house with the children and general house work, and the other role to help my husband and our employee out in the paddock with mostly fencing and any other farm duties.
Our ideal couple would be fun, have genuine interest in children and the outdoor lifestyle, be able to work unsupervised and alone at times, and have own transport.
We are flexible with work days and hours will be negotiable. We will cover food and accommodation.
Main tasks include:
• General house work
• Gardening – lawn mowing, weeding
• Erecting and maintaining new fences
• Some cattle work including yard work and mustering
• Feeding animals – dogs, sheep
• General property maintenance
A cottage is available, there is mobile phone coverage but is patchy in places.
Look forward to hearing from you.
