We are a couple in our early to mid 60s and have been married since 1975. We consider ourselves to be honest, respectful, reliable and very conscientious people. Also love housekeeping! We are looking forward to sitting jobs of 2 to 6 weeks, ideally on acreage, small farms or large ones! We live full time in our caravan, so will need a space to park it ( 9 metres total length). We are happy to live in your home if required, or stay in our van if you can provide access to utilities and a toilet for us. ABOUT US : For over 35 years we were cereal and sheep farming on our property in Central West NSW and decided to take our leave in July 2006 and began travelling and working. We started out Farm Sitting in NSW and QLD. We then picked up several paid jobs in SA as we travelled across to WA, arriving in 2008. Mark soon got a start in the mining industry as an operator at Lawlers Gold Mine, then we both gained full time work drivingroad trains, then dump trucks at FMG mines in The Pilbara. We were 2/1 FIFO in these jobs, until May 2018, when we decided it was time to leave that lifestyle behind. We now live in our own caravan full-time and will continue to travel around WA for several years, with house/farm sitting being a great option for us, as well as taking on occasional short term work. We are no fuss, down to earth people. Non smokers. Enjoy the outdoors and gardening. Mark is very handy with most tools, so minor maintenance would not be a problem. We will care for any animals, prefer them to be mostly outdoors, but sleeping inside is fine. We have no pets of our own. We will be able to provide personal referrals and Police clearances if required. Please check our availability calendar. Looking forward to hearing from you!
