We need a house sitter

Tasmania - Launceston


My husband and I currently live on our 13 acre property in a shed/container conversion while we are building our new home. Its small and cosy but has everything we need, including a fantastic oven! We have two dogs; a 7 year old border collie and a nine year old lab/kelpie x, a small shorthaired cat that loves cuddles, two friendly and inquisitive young cows, three berkshire piglets, two ducklings and a handful of free-ranging chickens. The livestock don't need much attention, apart from a scratch or cuddle, and a small amount of feeding. We have an atrium filled with veggies, this just needs a water every few days but its on a reticulation timer so not a lot of effort! We have lots of self sufficient fruit trees and garden beds as well. Our property is nestled in the beautiful countryside of Karoola, a 25 minute drive to the centre of Launceston and five minutes away from the township of Lilydale, with an IGA, post office, service station and fantastic cafe and many more attractions nearby.
We have neighbours just down the lane that are very friendly and happy to help out with anything if required.
