G'day.TRAVELLING PAINTERS WANTED. One or two female travel companions would be welcome. who would like to paint for their keep and likes to see different places. Be adventurous, come and see some of the best of Australia in the cooler climate of the Snowy Mts, away from the cities where you will save all your food, travel and accommodation funds. Starting on Monday 15th Dec for 7 days, we live in luxury, have the best food and do some painting around windows. Then we have a break till Jan 2nd where you can travel around the Snowy area with your own personal chauffeur / travel guide, (me) where you sleep in a tent, I sleep in the vehicle, away from the drop bears or we can continue painting until January 1Oth. Travel is by car where you'll experience National Parks in the high country, see the mighty Snowy Mountains Hydro Scheme in full splendour, Brumbies, wombats and visit beaches. I have been doing trips like this for over 15 years and have hosted on the yacht or the farm over 3OOO backpackers over the years. I also have many references from them. See my profile as helpx host #47576.

Helper Description:
I retired when I was 49 years old after 30 years service driving steam, diesel and electric engines on goods and passenger trains for the NSW Government Railways. In Summer, I travel South, NSW, Victoria, South Australia and back through the inland to Qld in March for some time on the yacht, then North to Cooktown and inland by car (NOT YACHT), for the winter, camping, gold detecting, farm work, house painting, house sitting or exploring the beaches.
I don't drink or smoke, am reliable, dependable and honest.
As a host, have hosted many travellers either on the 11 metre yacht, which sleeps 6, on my friends farm or when travelling with me to work on farms in all States. I have painted many National Trust houses and house sat 1O houses.
I have a vehicle, trailer, a 3.5 metre boat, gear for house painting, maintenance and camping. I have been around Australia 3 times, like all animals, isolated places, boating and op shops. I am in Cooma at present
Other than the above I'm a rather quiet, reserved type.
