so that we are able to only take the ones we want, in the areas we believe will be interesting. Over the last 4 years we have built up excellent contacts, and friendships, in Qld, NSW, SA and Vic. We have enough return requests, and people requesting us out of the blue, to pretty well give us continuous "work"... if we wanted it.
It's a perfect way to see Australia in comfort and with many pets to care for... which we simply love.
As for 'tips' ... consider your house sit as a responsible job, do it well and return the house and pets to the owners is a happy and clean state. Then get brilliant references to post on your housecarers site. The work will then start coming to you... with the bonus of making great friends all over the country.
We are based in Busselton, WA when not on the road.
At present... we have just left a 2 month sit in Wiseman's Ferry NSW and, today begin a 6 week sit in stunning Warrnambool Vic... with two rescue greyhounds and two loving cats, Fantastic.!!!
Good luck and thanks, Ian
