Sun sun sun!

Hi, we are a fun couple with 2 young children living on a picturesque farm 10km from Mareeba. We grow avocados, limes and mangoes.
We are only a one hour drive or bus from Cairns, and the surrounding region has so much to offer! Amazing lakes, waterfalls and natural wonders are only a short drive away.

This time of year on the farm is NOT very busy, as we have finished the winter zucchini crop and are awaiting the beginning of the mango and avocado seasons.

We are looking for a person or couple to come and stay on our farm for a few weeks or more. In exchange for around 3-4 hours help a day we will provide food, accomodation in your own private large room equipped with tv and dvd player, unlimited wi-fi, great phone reception, private bathroom and above ground swimming pool.

Jobs will include help around the house like some cooking and cleaning up at meal times (we have recently installed a new dishwasher), and other general chores.

Farm jobs may include picking some limes, watering (turning on and off irrigation taps) and some pruning of trees.

This exchange is very important to us and we are greatful to have people come to our family farm. We provide a happy environment for you to live and enjoy your stay in this fantastic region of Australia.

Your own transport would be beneficial, but not essential as there is a bus that runs from Mareeba to Cairns leaving from Cairns Central Railway Station and we are happy to pick you up from Mareeba. We do have a spare car if you have an International drivers license and experience driving on Australian roads.

We hope to provide a friendly positive experience of an Australian Rural Farm and country life. We have amazing views to soak up and much to learn about how food grows and where it comes from not only on our farm, but the local area which is rich in agricultural diversity.
You can step outside and enjoy wildlife such as kangaroos, wallabies, kookaburras, possums, frogs and our two family dogs, Rex and Flash.

We'd love to hear from you and be a part of your Australian experience.

Veni and Amanda
