Hi! I’m Sonali. I’m originally from Mudgee NSW. I just moved to Lord Howe with my husband who is the local policeman and our three year old son. My background is in nursing and I hold advanced first aid and advanced life support training – hopefully you won’t need this assistance whilst on holiday though! I also love to bake and have already made many birthday cakes for locals on the Island. My son will be accompanying me on any day time babysitting jobs. He loves meeting new people as do I! We look forward to exploring the Island with more kids in tow!
Hi, i’m Megan! I am a proud Lord Howe Islander, though I currently spend the majority of the year on the mainland studying secondary teaching at university. I grew up on the Island before my family and I moved to the mainland so my three siblings and I could attend high school. I return to the Island every year between December and January to visit my extended family. I really enjoy anything outdoors like going to the beach, stand up paddle boarding, hiking, swimming, snorkelling and especially going out on the boat. Children are such a gift and I love working with children of all ages. I’m looking forward to helping you enjoy your time on the Island as much as possible!
Daytime: Monday to Friday, Night Time: Sunday to Thursday
Hi! I’m Elyse. I have lived and loved Lord Howe Island for almost seven years. I am originally from Melbourne, but have been travelling around Australia for the last eight years. In the Lord Howe winter, I spend my time in the Kimberley however, this hasn’t happened in the last two years due to Covid. I love the outdoors and connecting with nature, wildlife and enjoying the ocean and rockpools. I also love looking after little ones while their parents go out for dinner. Story time, slow play and settling children into a happy and relaxed night is part of the day I truly cherish. I am comfortable with children of all ages and I am looking forward to helping you enjoy a much needed holiday on our beautiful island.
