Hi
Our property is a small farm between Gympie and Rainbow Beach. We grow food for our own use or to share with friends and family we are not a commercial farm. There is a mixture of gardens, pastures and bushland and we are situated on Tinana Creek. Our aim is to restore habitat for wildlife including rare species of frogs, birds, fish, mammals (Koalas, Fruit Bats & Platypus) and plants that occur here.

You can go for walks on the property or in the nearby National Park and there are bikes for rides through the countryside. We can take you to some of the beautiful places in our local area too. Marc is an avid kitesurfer and is happy to take workers on beach expeditions.

We like to have help with cooking, building, household duties, painting, tree planting and environmental weed control. Also there are organic vege gardens / orchard, cows, sheep, chickens and a dog to manage. We try to vary the jobs and are happy to teach workers about local wildlife, native plants, bush foods, permaculture and organic growing when we can. We expect workers to do about 3 hours a day plus help with meals. We all share the kitchen and dining area and eat nutritious and tasty vegetarian meals.

Accommodation is a room in the cottage (pictured) or a clean and comfortable caravan. Visitors have a separate bathroom and toilet.

We can't do 2nd year visas - sorry. Most workers stay for 2-4 weeks (although many come back to stay again).
Cheers
Marc and Kerrianne
