It is April,Cyclone Debbie scored a direct hit on our cedar Views in March 2017!!-it looks a lot better now as we work out from the house/garage & gardens into the forest and other areas.3 Hours a day for bed & food,it is a Nudist stay for all helpers,that is a No clothes experience most of the time.Lots to do,tools to use,skills to learn and for those enjoying the tasks & lifestyle- there will be extra rewarded hours available for those wanting to improve their travel funds.Wake up with the native bird songs and flowers.It is non-smoking, only rarely drinking, mainly vegetarian stay.Stone wall building and some painting and Art timber work projects when the weather is right.Work just in the mornings usually,I enjoy helping those learning English. We accept couples or females only,and the accommodation is now only the cabin & Caravans for a short stay.The Pool area is now repaired and the wi-fi is available there for those who need it.By car-15mins to beach,5mins to town,12mins to airport,6mins to train,10mins to waterfall, 20mins to dam.I only pick up in Proserpine in the mornings.We have now had a lot of helpers and the response has been mostly good,some still come who are not true Helpxer's however. We do not take single guys due to the nudism lifestyle,sorry...The cyclone damage from Dylan,Edna,Ita,Antony,Ului and Debbie -is still being undertaken-clearing downed trees,repairing structures etc..We look forward to our next helpers joining us and enjoying their time with us.
Due to Govt. changes to W.H.Visas it is not viable for many travelers as the Govt. takes 1/3 of every dollar earn't with no exemptions.It is probably a better deal to come to Australia on a 3 month tourist visa and do a WHV in New Zealand then return to Australia for another Tourist stay.We have found that long stay helpers find using our place as a base and doing short stay Helpx north & south of the Whitsundays works quite well.Those who are well organized can arrange stays with us in advance as you can arrive all year.Those Helpers who love it here and want to have"a long stay"-there is 'English'English Language help during their stay and extra assistance with information to assist them in staying longer in Aust.Bookings for 2018 can be taken if you are well organised,enjoy a fun & safe year.A book project has been added also-so anyone with a writing interest and good computer skills would be most helpful.A stay with us would suit a person who is a Black Sheep,does not follow the crowd and who searches for a different life.
