HOUSE SITTING AROUND QUEENSLAND (QLD)

The northeastern state of Queensland is home to a variety of different cities and activities for house and pet sitters to check out.

The best place to go to for house and pet sitting opportunities in Queensland is in the capital city of Brisbane. This city is right along Moreton Bay. When house sitting in this area you should look visit Moreton Island outside of the city. This island is home to a large national park.




Brisbane is also home to Suncorp Stadium, a field that hosts a variety of sporting events including rugby league and rugby union events.

The northeastern city of Cairns is also a good option. Cairns is right near the Great Barrier Reef and is home to various scuba diving centres. For pet sitters the Cairns Marina is a popular spot for dog walking. This area can be affected by tropical cyclones in the summer though.




The Gold Coast is a great place to check out for house sitting thanks to the various different amusement parks in that area. These parks include the Dreamworld and Sea World parks. Don’t forget about the natural parks and beaches on the Gold Coast too.

 
*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.
