Responsible, reliable, friendly and honest people - 4-6 people - either couples or friends or singles required for immediate start for 2 weeks part time farm work at Echo Valley, a beautiful and historic cattle and kiwi fruit farm, located in Springbrook, Gold Coast Hinterland, Qld.

25 hours per week, 7am-12pm Monday to Friday @ $20 per hour. This allows time to explore the surrounding local area e.g. Gold Coast beaches, World Heritage National Parks, Gold Coast shops; and have personal time to go the bank/post office/doctor and arrange your future travel plans and work as well as to just rest-up and enjoy our beautiful farm.

Clean, modern, separate on-farm accommodation - shared house with single beds - included rent-free.

Work will be 2.5 hours hand-pulling weeds and 2.5 hours tying down canes in the kiwi fruit orchard; a total of 5 hours per day Monday to Friday. No experience is necessary but reasonable English is preferred.

You must have an Australian Tax File Number (TFN), Superannuation bank account, travel insurance and your own vehicle. There is no public transport in Springbrook.

You need to be reasonably fit, enjoy working outdoors, ask if you do not understand, have lots of enthusiasm and cheerfulness and a willingness to try new things.

We cannot sign off on the 2nd year working holiday visa as we are not in the required postcode areas.

You will need a hat, sunglasses, suncream, water bottle, insect repellent and covered shoes e.g. sneakers or boots. It is usually cooler and wetter up the mountain so a jumper/jacket and long pants e.g. jeans are often needed. You will need to buy your own food and arrange your own meals.
