we live on 4.5 acres of reclaimed tropical dairy land in the green tropics of far north queensland.
the atherton tablelands elevation ensures slightly cooler and more comfortable temperatures than the coast.
our property is peaceful and green. at night, you can see the milky way clearly and hear the johnston river at the end of the road.
we have been planting for the last few years in an effort to provide habitat for birds and mammals and have finally successfully attracted a lumholtz tree kangaroo to our property.

we need assistance with the garden: basic weeding and mulching and pruning.
my husband milks cows twice a day for a neighbouring farmer, and i run two small businesses.

your accomodation is very comfortable latex mattresses on teak daybeds in the living room.
we will share a single, very modern bathroom.
our home is a converted boat shed...spacious and open plan.
we run on solar power and rainwater here.
we are non-smokers.
we are not vegetarian, but we were for years. i used to be a chef, and am happy to cater for vegetarians.

over the years we have hosted airbnb guests and lots of friends.
we very much enjoy meeting new people of all ages and getting fresh perspectives.

we can supply 3 meals a day and accom, in exchange for 4 hours work per day.
duties include basic gardening, mowing and cleaning. i may need help in my workshop from time to time. and anyone who can vacuum and wash dishes is always welcome!

there is no public transport at all here, so helpers will need their own transport.

two week stays maximum, please.
a couple, or two friends, or a solo traveller, would be best.
we do have beds for three guests and we could do that for ten days.

finally, we have a crew of friendly cats.
