Our crazy family of 7 (not including the animals) need someone with buckets of initiative and a hardworking, 'can do' attitude, to come and help us get some order into our lives. We live near Toowoomba on 100 acres of bush, with goats, horses, pigs, chooks, dogs, cats, and 5 children ages 11, 9, 7, 5, & 3.
For the right person there would be accommodation & food in return for the equivalent of 4-5 hours work a day.
Duties would primarily consist of cleaning, washing, feeding animals, sometimes babysitting, and gardening or helping me construct tyre walls/ cottage, or fencing.

There is the possibility of extra jobs such as cleaning and ironing in the surrounding neighbourhood, or extra baby sitting for us. You would be part of the family, and able to take part in as little or as much of family life as you like.

This includes things such as Horse riding, hiking, swimming or kayaking on our creek or small dam.

We would need you to work for us during the school term, from 6th October, but if it works out there is the possibility for longer.
It would certainly give you an insight into Australian family life (Well ours, anyway!) if you are a traveller!

If you have loads of initiative, can see where you are needed and help out without necessarily being asked all the time, and are interested, email us and tell us something about yourself, and ask any questions you like.

Good luck in your job search, Kate.
