We are Michael and Mari and our home is on the outskirts of Pomona on the Sunshine Coast 90 minutes north of Brisbane.

Our household also includes Mari's 93 year old Japanese mother and a small dog called Bonnie and six "chooks" (chickens).

We have a small property with a wonderful view of Mount Cooroora. Our 3 acre garden has a vegie patch, some fruit trees and a small pocket of rainforest along the creek. The garden is well established and in different seasons we need help with weeding, mulching, pruning and watering.

Our Helpxers give us 4 hours a day five days a week in exchange for accommodation and food. The work will be gardening, cleaning and general maintenance. It may also include occasional "granny-sitting" so we need a Helpxer who is patient and kind and would be willing to keep our granny company occasionally when we need to go out. A Japanese speaker would be very welcome. And this may suit someone who is learning Japanese.

Pomona is only 30 minutes away from beautiful resort town of Noosa Heads. If you don`t have a car, you can catch the bus if you want to explore the Noosa National Park or the beaches and shops on your days off.

We like our Helpxers to feel like part of the family and join us in conversation, cooking, watching movies and playing games. Mari is an experienced TESOL English teacher so travellers of all nationalities are welcome.
