Last Updated: December 4, 2018

We are a family with two children, aged 13 and 16, living in central Geraldton (sunny, coastal town, 4 hours north of Perth) on a 'garden' block of fruit trees and vegie garden. We would love help with general jobs around the house and garden. We have extended our backyard and have a large space that needs some construction and gardening work.
We are keen travellers (in 2011 cycling around Europe for 7 months- www.4bikes1tent.org) and have enjoyed hosting many visitors from the world over. Our own experiences include WWOOFing in Europe twice.
We love growing, preparing and cooking food (see photos). We have had many happy meal times sharing experiences and cultures with people from Italy, France, Germany, Taiwan, Libya, Mexico, South Africa, the US and UK.
You could join us in our outdoor activities like going to the beach (surfing, snorkelling, boating), cycling, running, camping etc. In exchange for 3-4 hours work a day, helpers would have their own accommodation space in a granny flat, in our backyard, with internet access. A meal per day would be shared, mainly vegetarian.
We are centrally located, within short walking distance of the CBD, shops, library, theatre, beaches, parks etc.
Some Italian spoken. We would love to practise some more!
Sorry, we cannot sign for second year working visas.
