We are a young family looking for helpers to stay with us and experience the culture of living with an Australian family that enjoy outdoor activities, bush walking, horse riding and events and lots of other activities on offer.

We live approx 2 hours from the closest town of Charters Towers (historic gold town) 4 hours away from Townsville..
Bodalla is a very beautiful rural setting with waterfalls, creeks etc, basalt lava wall and many other landmarks.
Our family also has 6 dogs, 4 cats and a LOT of horses - so for all those people that like animals and want to experience life on a outback cattle station then this is for u!

We are simply looking for an extra pair of hands to help muck out, feed animals, and help with house hold chores and cooking if possible.

We would require you to be available to help out approx 4 hours a day 5 days a week and there is flexibility to move hours around. So your weekends could be free after chores are done. We are people that like to get out of the house when possible, so will be more than happy to show you around the place.
Please note that we have LIMITED internet. This seems to always cause a problem as our helpers do not understand that we dont have access to mobile coverage and internet is therefore very expensive here.

If you would like home cooked meals, in a house with plenty of room to move while you look for your next travel adventure we would love to hear from you.

Please could you provide some more information about yourself and your work experience if you are interested.
Couple positions are available and have their own room in the main house. Must be friendly, have a sense of humour and have initiative and be able to work alone. The internet is also limited as we only have satellite connection here so please consider this when applying.

Happy to accommodate short term applicants, as I understand people are traveling around Australia, however we would like you to be able to stay at least 3 weeks with us. I can guarantee the longer you stay the more you will get to experience. :)

We have been exchange hosts for a long time and have had lots of fun with all the people we have met, many I am still friends with, so we are used to living with people that are traveling and I love showing them what our great country has to offer.

PLEASE - NO DRUGS. You will be asked to leave!
