For up to 6 months with flexibility | Long Term

The timing for this housesit will start around February/March 2021 and would be for a period of up to 6 months, with flexibility.

We are looking for a reliable and caring couple interested in semi-rural living and enjoying the local wildlife, to look after our property whilst we are travelling in Australia. From past experience we have a preference for couples with no children and who are non-smokers.

The property is an "A" framed (two storey) brick house and car port, set on a ridge on 40 acres of rolling countryside with lovely views over a valley to the surrounding hills. It is 6 km from Dayboro, a small country town, 50 km north-west of Brisbane. Dayboro has the essential shops and restaurants, whilst Strathpine or North Lakes, some 25km away are large towns with a Westfield shopping centre.
We would like to stress that the journey into Brisbane does take about one hour by car, depending on traffic and the nearest train station is at Petrie, about 22km away or alternatively Ferny Grove about 25 km away.

We have encouraged our wildlife, namely red- necked wallabies, possums, bandicoots, the occasional squirrel glider and many varied birds to come and frequent the area around the house by feeding them small snacks of parrot seed on a daily basis. This has been one of the highlights for us and our overseas visitors to Australia and is also popular with our friends' visitors aswell. Of course, as we attract birds and animals onto our property, pets are not an acceptable part of the housesit.

Our other requirements are naturally to maintain the house in a good and safe condition, returning it to us in the condition you found it, to water plants, mow the grass around the house, (if necessary), and to continue to feed the animals on a daily basis

If you enjoy wildlife and think this housesit would suit you, please contact us with your expressions of interest, some details about yourselves and any questions you may have.

Many thanks
