House Sitting in Australia

House Sitting and Pet Sitting in Australia. The image is a busy day at Bondi Beach, Sydney, Australia.

Yes it's true, Australia is a land of beaches, fantastic cities, wild remote places, peaceful farming regions, wineries and gourmet food - and beautiful sunny beaches.

There is a whole lot of House Sitting going on around this big beatiful country. Great homes in a huge range of shapes and sizes. From Bondi Beach in Sydney, to the remote Northern Territory, from the funky inner suburbs of Melbourne to the relaxed Brisbane vibe, from the urban jungle to the wilds of Tasmania, there's SO MUCH ON OFFER.

And is there any better way to experience this wonderful country than House Sitting? We think not. Is there a better place to get involved than Aussie House Sitters? No. We have more houses and sitters than any other Australian site, we are Australians working in Australia offering fast, friendly support, and it's only $65 per year, unzoned.

House Sitting by State

From the beaches of New South Wales to the wineries of South Australia, the wilds of Tasmania to the gourmet food regions in Victoria - right around this country state by state, there's lots of House Sitting to be had.

*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.
