Currently looking for helpers to do gardening & yard work, pruning, whipper snipping, planting, cleaning, maybe painting. I would also appreciate having someone who is able to help with riding & working with my horse Willow but not necessary.

We live in Bella Creek in the beautiful Mary Valley in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland, by car, 2 hours north of Brisbane by car, 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 and can have fun whilst working with limited supervision.

A reasonably good understanding of English is IMPORTANT as there are such a variety of things to do.

Accommodation is a private double bedroom with en suite compost toilet or the loft king size bunk bed in the main area of the COUNTRY RUSTIC CABIN. The cabin has a kitchen, gas cooker, BBQ, outside gas hot water shower, DVD player a wood burner & a fire pit outside.
I supply all food, you make your own meals, although we will occasionally share a meal & beverage!!

Organic house & vegetable gardens plus some citrus, avocado & 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, 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), 6 peacocks, 2 geese, 2 cats & 2 small dogs. You have use of 2 kayaks.

There are nearby creeks, a lake & rivers to swim in 5 minutes away. With all the rain, we have a lovely fresh water dam you can swim in 50 metres from your cabin. 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.

I am a full time carer for my 90 year old mother & generally have quiet time with her in the evenings.
