Last Updated: November 15, 2016

We are a young family of five (Mum and Dad with a 4 year-old boy, 2 year-old girl and 6 week old baby girl) living on 3 acres in Brookfield, on the edge of Brisbane (15km to CBD, 7km to Indooroopilly). Brookfield is a semi-rural area bordering the city and Mount Coot-tha National Park.

We are establishing a large garden at our home and regularly require help around the house and garden. Ongoing jobs include general gardening and landscaping (tending to vegetable garden and orchard, planting, mulching, garden maintenance, watering etc); work around the house (cleaning, housework, maintenance, laundry etc); and helping out with our three young children.

We will offer free accommodation and all meals in exchange for 25 hours work per week (per person), as per WWOOF guidelines. You will need to be friendly, independent, show initiative and have a good work ethic. Length of stay with us is negotiable, depending on what work we have on at the time.

Accommodation is on the lower level of our family home. You will have your own large bedroom, bathroom, access to laundry etc. The room has a Queen bed, so suits a couple. You will feel like you have your own space and can come and go through your own entrance. Free wi-fi included. Non-smokers please!

Base yourself with us and explore the surrounding areas (Noosa, Sunshine Coast, Byron Bay and Gold Coast are all within a 1-2-hour drive) on your free days. We offer very flexible work hours and conditions. Depending on what work we have on, you could fit your 25 hours into 3 days and go exploring for the remainder of the week - its up to you! Your own transport/car would be preferable as this will give you the independence to come and go as you please (public transport is not great to/from Brookfield!).

We are a very friendly, sociable, happy young family. We hope we can add to your positive travel experience in Australia.
To apply, please email us your resume, references and a little bit about yourself. We look forward to hearing from you!
