Hi helpers, please come and help us with our efforts to improve this lovely property, located one hour from Noosa beach.

We have been away working in NSW for two years and we require energetic and enthusiastic helpers to help us with odd jobs to get our land and building project back on track.
Our property is a beautiful and peaceful forest 15kms from the nearest town of Gympie. The land has many native animals roaming free such as kangaroos, wallabies, possums, various reptiles and over 100 species of beautiful birds which amuse us with their singing all day.

We trade good food and comfortable accommodation in exchange for 4 hours help for each day you stay.
The food arrangements are:
Breakfast; help yourself to cereals, porridges, eggs, toast with spreads and fruit.
Lunch: help yourself to the available fridge and pantry ingredients such as cheese, eggs, tuna, beans, meat, fruit, vegetables, bread, pasta, rice, noodles to make your own preferred lunch.
Dinner: The hosts will prepare you a delicious and filling main meal and some dessert from a range of recipes.
Teas, coffee and refreshing chilled rainwater is available at any time.
The helper accommodation are large rooms in the house with comfortable beds. The outdoor areas are really lovely, great for relaxing with hammocks and Bluetooth stereo, with plenty of space for meditation, playing games and exercising.

The help we need includes; weed clearing, tree-planting, other gardening, cleaning, painting, mosaic tiling. We will always provide you with references for work or other helpx.
If you plan on going picking or doing other outdoors labouring work in Australia, you can build your strength here by helping us outdoors for a few hours a day.
Alternatively, let us know if you have any artistic abilities as there are lots of materials and space for painting murals or mosaic tiling etc.

We provide work clothes and gumboots in various sizes for you to use if you wish.

We occasionally provide transport to Noosa or other Sunshine coast locations for sightseeing and a swim at the beach.

Gympie is a very scenic Australian country town near Rainbow Beach, Fraser Island, Noosa and the Sunshine Coast. It is 2 hours north of Brisbane and an hour from the Sunshine Coast and Rainbow Beach. The Bruce Highway runs through Gympie as do the trains and coaches that travel north from Brisbane.

Pick-up is from Gympie bus terminal or Gympie North Train Station on any day arranged in advance.

Please email us a description of your skills and expectations. We are non-smokers and we prefer non-smokers to come. We request that helpets who smoke must do it outside, well away from the house.

We look forward to hearing from you.
May you have safe travels with sunny skies and many smiles to greet you everywhere you go.
