Our family is fun and a little mad! My name is Warwick & my wife is Marcelle, we are looking for someone to come & help with our young family. We have a 5yr old daughter & twin boys 3 years old!
About us.. we live in Ballarat, which is a city of 100,000 people & is situated 1.5 hrs from Melbourne in Victoria, Australia. My wife & I lived in Melbourne for most of our lives, but with a young family we decided to move to a smaller city. We are very glad we did & really enjoy our lives up here!
There's plenty to do up here being a good sized city, we are also close to Grampians, Great Ocean Road and to the Pyrennes wine region.
