At the moment my husband working away and I am alone with 2 kids I need help for cooking, cleaning and gardening. I only have a queen bed in the house at the moment so if you are couple no probleme but if you are 2 friends you can still come if you dont mind sharing the same bed sorry for the inconveignance.


We are a familly of ex-travelers and now decided to settle in far north queensland and raise our kids (2 and nearly 5 years old boys) I was backpaking around Australia when I met my husband, we travel 4 years in Oz and prior that I traveled Europe, Africa, Asia. Now it is our turn to provide accomodation to travelers as we know it is nice to share the life of the locals
My husband works full time as a builder and plumber and me I stay home and try to do everything I can but as we have to many ideas and not enough arms we would like a hand in exchange of meals and accomodation .Our house is situated 30min walk from the CBD of Mareeba (or 2 min drive).It is up the Tablelands 1h hour in land from Cairns
We have a big garden where I try to grow most of our food with biodynamique and permaculture ideas. Want to learn how to make some good compost, grow your own yummy food, preserve the harvest, permaculture on the highland tropics...Learn to get back to the basic in our throw away society. We like having people who are 24 or older or young enthousiatste and mature. We may ask for hard work but you will be giving good food ( most of it organic) in return and nice social nights around camp fire. I love doing craft ( leather, macrame, sewing, painting....)
Most of the work needed will be out the garden ( depens on the season from sowing to harvesting) but there will be some in the house as well( cooking,making cleaning product, laundry liquide, preserving the harvest....) And some general cleaning ( put plates away after meals,vaccum...)
When the work is done we can talk travels stories around a nice fire or go swiming or read books...

We have different options for your stay here. You will have a bedroom in the house or have a fully contained caravan for more privacy.
FULL TIME : around 4h/5h per day for 7days. This include breakfast/ lunch / diner.
PART TIME : around 2h per day for 7 days. This option only provide accommodation you will have to cook your meals.

See you soon
