My experience with Aussie House Sitters and the homes that I sat for was superlative!! Lovely homes, lovely people and pets that I truly bonded with. Housesitting allowed me to have a prolonged time living in the vicinity of my daughter & her family without being on her doorstep 24/7. I have recommended your site to countless folks as a great way to visit and travel throughout Australia. Wendy

House Sitting in New South Wales

House and Pet Sitting in New South Wales - image of Hyde Park fountain, Sydney

New South Wales is blessed with extraordinary natural beauty, vibrant cities and picture perfect beaches right along the coast. There is house-sitting to be had right around this enormous and multi-faceted state.

Sydney is the big drawcard of course, and is an incredible destination in its own right. But there's more to New South Wales than the emerald city. Other cities like Wollongong, Newcastle and Albury have thriving cafes, restaurants, entertainment, nightlife and cultural venues. Beautiful townships like Byron Bay, Central Tilba, Bowral, Bega and Ballina take you from new-age bliss to gorgeous historical, from classy weekend retreats to bustling country hubs.

New South Wales is big, diverse and full of opportunities for great house-sitting.

The state of New South Wales is home to many great places for you to check out for house sitting. Here is a look at some of these places.

The city of Sydney and its surrounding areas is a great place to look into for house sitting. In addition to having many beaches Sydney is home to the world famous Opera House and nine different National Rugby League teams. No matter where you are house sitting in the city of Sydney you can get to various destinations around the area through the CityRail rail transit system.

If you are going to be pet sitting anywhere in New South Wales you should check out the city of Wollongong. This city is home to various mountains with paths that are great for dog walking including Mount Murray and Mount Keira. The Oceanside setting of Wollongong is especially popular among house sitters.

If you are house sitting during the winter months it helps to look into openings in neighbourhoods along the Great Dividing Range. Various skiing areas can be found along the Snowy Mountains here during the winter with many homes being near these areas.

New South Wales (abbreviated as NSW) is Australia's most populous state, located in the south-east of the country, north of Victoria, south of Queensland and east of South Australia. It was founded in 1788 and originally comprised much of the Australian mainland, as well as Lord Howe Island and Norfolk Island.

*FREE: House sitting is usually free, for both sitter and house owner, although this is completely up to the individuals. There are usually some costs that need to be covered by either the sitter or the house owner e.g. electricity, phone usage, vet fees etc. How these costs are handled needs to be agreed before the sit begins. House sitters pay a single annual membership fee, while house owners pay nothing to advertise their house or to contact sitters.
