We are a family of four on a tropical fruit orchard about 4 hours drive or 200km north of Cairns, 60km south of Cooktown. The property lies next to Cedar Bay National Park and is surrounded by World Heritage-listed rainforest.
We have a rambling tropical fruit orchard, a vegie garden, some chickens and sell fruit trees from our nursery. We live off-grid, maintain our own road and water supply and generate our own power from solar and hydro.
Accommodation is CAMPING ONLY, but you can use the house facilities.
Our driveway is a 2km track and is only suitable for 4WD vehicles. You can park safely near the main road and we'll help you in with your stuff.
Jobs could include orchard and nursery work, gardening, building and roadwork. Some help in the kitchen is appreciated, but no other housework needed.
Meals are mostly vegetarian. Special diets not catered for.
The nearest shop is 15 km away. There is NO mobile phone reception but Internet is available at the house.
You should be able to communicate in English, be fit and healthy and prepared to encounter biting insects, spiders, snakes and wild pigs.
We prefer helpers to stay at least one week and ask for at least 4 hours of your time per day.
You can explore the rainforest, swim in freshwater creeks or look for wildlife like wallabies, tree-kangaroos and cassowaries. Fishing and boating are possible if the weather is right. We enjoy showing people around our amazing local area.
There is a 5km hiking track through the property to the remote and beautiful Cedar Bay, once a hippie commune in the 1970's, now a national park.
