We live in a beautiful corner of Queensland, near the New South Wales border, in a scenic valley surrounded by mountains, with national parks and water falls nearby. We have a small cattle property (cows and calves) with two cottages rented out for short stays for guests. We are about 2 hours from Brisbane and the Gold Coast.

We enjoy welcoming people from other cultures to our home. We have a close family and our helpers are like extended family to us. We have a lot of family activities which we like you to join in with. Most of the family is musical and we have a piano, keyboard and guitar which you are welcome to use.

We need occasional help with cattle (mustering, vaccinating etc) fencing, perhaps painting, gardening, cleaning cottages etc. We use quad bikes to muster our cattle and a tractor for other farm use. I can show you how to drive a tractor if you have never used one.

We will welcome you as family and hope you will join us in our family activities. We particularly don't want you to stay in your room with your computer, as the idea of Helpx is for us to get to know each other! We want you to feel that while you are here our home is your home! We provide all meals and accommodation, plus reasonable internet use, in return for about 20 hours work per week, sometimes less. You have your own bathroom and bedroom in the family home. Neil is a retired English teacher who is learning French and can help you with the English language if you like.

We will take you to town and show you the local attractions, including Brisbane and the Gold Coast. If you enjoy nature you will like it here. You need to be reasonably strong as farm work is sometimes strenuous, but overall the work is not hard and we don't expect too much from you.

We prefer stays of a month or more, but will consider less.
We can pick you up from the airport at Brisbane or the Gold Coast, or from the train in Ipswich
