We are a professional couple in our late 30's with three children, 7yrs, 4yrs, 1yr. We live on a stunning farm in Tasmania and would like to swap with another couple or family in the Cairns or FNQ area, with a fenced yard and a pool. We are tidy, clean, careful people. We are flexible with dates, but looking to travel for around 3 to 6 weeks from around mid Aug to Mid Oct 2012. Happy to negotiate car swap. Cot and high chair available. This is our first house swap, but our parents have had 2 successful house swaps and really enjoyed it.
