We are looking for a house sitter to care for poodle X, outdoor fish ponds and chickens and the grass may need mowing once or twice. Mackay is in the southern most region of North Qld and is known for it's many beaches. We are located 9 houses down from Iluka Beach (better know as Town Beach)and only a few blocks from the centre of town with easy access to a pedestrian/bike trail that surrounds the city centre. The Whitsunday region is only an hour away and day trips can easily be organised. December/January is in the warmer part of the year but Mackay usually experiences cool sea breezes especially when compared to places north and south of here. The house is quite large and can fit a few extra people (if you were inviting visitors). It is very comfortable and air conditioned through out for those few days when the breezes drop. Non-smoker preferred.
