We are are taking a break from renovating our house in Melbourne and not currently looking for helpers!

*HOWEVER* if you are looking for an Australian Experience and are willing to get off the beaten track, we have family in:

#Flinders Island
(Uncle Roger has a family-run boutique vineyard of which he is an enthusiastic sampler, contact them for best way onto the island, he has his own boat;)

#Northern Tasmania
(Mum and Dad have a 40 acre hobby farm and usually have several injured/orphaned baby Australian animals they are nursing back to health)

#Christchurch, New Zealand
(My bro, Simon, can help you out if you want to swap some hard work around the house for everything you ever wanted to know about outdoor adventure in NZ, Tasmania and Victoria)


We're looking for helpers to help us out at our new place. The work will be gardening, painting, cleaning, landscaping, building, repairing and just generally helping out with whatever needs to be done. Extra bonus if you have training/experience as a carpenter/tradie/your own home renovations.

About you: We like helpers who can appreciate a job well done, ask questions when they need help and have a good eye for detail. Whether you've got skills or you're just good at learning and fixing mistakes, we don't mind so long as you enjoy helping out and getting involved when the work needs to be done, and sitting down for a chat and a meal when we're finished. We are only accepting non-smokers at the moment.

We're asking for approx 25-30 hours per week in exchange for food and accommodation. You will have a private room with access to unlimited internet, washing machine etc.

About us:
We're a pretty easy going couple moved to Melbourne last year after our 6 month honeymoon around Asia/Europe. We like happy, positive people who are easygoing and have good stories and/or a good sense of humour. We're expecting our first child next year, so Dee is not able to do any heavy lifting at the moment - your help with any of these jobs would also be greatly appreciated.

Stuff we like: chocolate, talking, eating food from our garden, rock climbing, cider, travelling, reading, sunsets, baby animals

Stuff we don't like that much: sandflies/midgies, spiders, having no chocolate, smell of smoke in our house, beer, food with gluten in it, negativity, mosquitos
