Advert for the Move to Australia Directory

We had access to a car and a 4-bedroom home with pool for three and a half months. We reckon we saved $25 to $27,000 by housesitting in those first few months…We didn’t have to pay any bills or anything like that. So basically, apart from putting petrol in the car and paying for our phone access, there was nothing else.
