Currently looking for helpers to do gardening & yard work, pruning, whipper snipping, planting, chainsawing and painting. I would also appreciate having someone who is able to help with riding & working with my horse Willow.
We live in Bella Creek in the beautiful Mary Valley in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland, by car, 2.5 hours north of Brisbane and under an hour to Noosa Heads & beaches, National Parks, Eumundi markets. 1.5 hours to Fraser Island ferry. This area attracts camping, hiking, fishing, kayaking, water sports, horse riding, biking in the pine plantations & bush walking.
I am looking for helpers who love nature, are motivated, have some common sense & can work with limited supervision plus have fun while working on any of the following:
Yard work, clearing & gardening, chain sawing, brush cutting, building, dyi, painting, repairing old/antique furniture, building dry rock walls & paths. A reasonably good understanding of English is IMPORTANT as there are such a variety of things to do. Accommodation is a loft bunk bed in the main area of the COUNTRY RUSTIC CABIN or private bedroom with ensuite compost toilet in the cabin. The cabin has a kitchenette, gas cooker, BBQ, outside gas hot water shower, DVD player a wood burner & a fire pit outside.
I will need to know your dietary requirements & you make your own meals, (although there will be meals shared occasionally).

Organic house & vegetable gardens plus some citrus & fruit trees.
Times worked in the morning 4.5 hours a day for 5 days (week days) with 2 days off on the weekend. Stays of 1 or 2 weeks initially, then longer if everyone fits well.
You will need closed in shoes & work clothes.
As we are living on 44 acres in the country, there is an abundance of wild life, birds, wallabies, hares, wild deer, lizards, spiders, bats & the odd snake in the summer, so if you have any phobias it's best not to apply here or anywhere in the country. We have 2 horses (experienced riders only for 1), 4 peacocks & chicks, 2 geese, 2 cats & 2 small dogs. You have use of 2 kayaks, a seadoo (4 seater paddle boat). There are nearby creeks, a lake & rivers to swim in 5 minutes away. At night you can sit around your campfire by the cabin, maybe hear the wild dogs howling and enjoy the starry nights. WIFI at the house (min download satellite) limited mobile reception, Skype, DVDís, books.
Sorry, as I am a full time carer for my 90 year old mother, plus other duties and animals to tend to, I cannot spend huge amounts of time with helpers & generally have quiet time with my mother in the evenings.
