Gunnedah region (posted 18/2/19)

Home > Classifieds > Housesitters Wanted

We are looking for a lovely self-contained grey nomad couple who would like to stop for a while (2-6 months) at our pretty cattle property located on the Namoi River between Gunnedah and Lake Keepit in North West New South Wales.

We are looking for a couple to give a presence at the property for security and to keep an eye on the cattle, and check the cattle troughs and fences.  A couple with livestock and farm experience would be preferable.

The homestead will be locked, but you will have access to power, water, a bathroom and the laundry.

We are located away from the farm but come frequently to do work, get away from the city, and enjoy some new Grey Nomad friends!  I intend to start developing the garden and do some nice things to the house so there’s lots to do when we’re there.  Any help would be wonderful if you felt like getting involved so a couple who has trade skills – carpentry, painting, electrical, plumbing, etc along with someone who wouldn’t mind throwing the occasional meal together for everyone (definitely my weak area) would be very welcome!

The farm is located on the Namoi River with fantastic fishing, bushwalks, bird watching…or just doing nothing!  Good Telstra mobile reception.  Lake Keepit is close, with sailing, gliding and other activities.  Gunnedah is 15 minutes drive, with lots of shops, Woolworths, Coles and Aldi, pubs, galleries, etc.

It is one of the last remaining farms still held by the original settling family in the district and is spiked with lots of interesting vestiges of its long history.

Any sized rig can be accommodated.  Our 7 year-old son loves animals so friendly pets welcome (provided they are well-behaved and contained, as there are young cattle on the property).

We love meeting Grey Nomads and new people – hearing their stories, experiences and wisdom (it’s sort of like travelling when we don’t have the chance to travel 😊)

References and police check required.

Non-smokers please 😊
