===At the moment we need someone capable of cutting down weed trees along the creek bank, and dragging them to a waste pile. Hot and hard work!===

Our property is a couple of kilometres outside the village of Nimbin in the beautiful Northern Rivers region of NSW - half an hour from Lismore, 45 minutes from Murwillumbah, an hour from Byron Bay/Ballina, and just over an hour from Coolangatta airport.

We are establishing a subtropical house garden on about one acre. We would appreciate help with the construction of a storm-water drain for rainwater run-off near the house, chainsawing fallen trees, weeding, brush-cutting (whipper snippering) and planting ornamental gardens. Help with oiling the decking would also be appreciated.

Help with endemic weed species eradication, particularly along the creek, is urgently required. Small-leaf privet, lantana and giant devil's figs are starting to gain a foothold and need to be severely dealt with!

People with TRACTOR-DRIVING SKILLS are particularly welcome as our creek flats require frequent slashing.

We are two retired gay men. Comfortable accommodation is your own room in our house. We have a swimming pool, a grand piano (one of us is an active musician - there is also a sax, a beautiful guitar and other instruments!).

As we are on tank water, helpers would need to be water-wise!

Our two dogs, one of which was rescued from a tough life on the streets, are gentle and friendly souls.

We are vegetarians but are equally comfortable providing vegan meals. We prefer to eat organic food where possible.

2 - 3 hours help a day would be appreciated - this would allow plenty of time for other activities such as exploring the natural beauty and cultural quirkiness of this part of the world, and just chilling out generally!

Please note that we do NOT need help with clothes-washing, house cleaning or child minding. It would be appreciated if any requests addressed our specific situation; generic emails sent to multiple hosts will receive a polite refusal. Please have an updated profile and a photo - this helps paint a picture of people we might invite into our lives.

Initial stays of 3 or 4 days would be preferred, and then open to negotiation after that. Unfortunately, we are not able to help with 2nd year visa extensions.

NB Our preference is for Helpers over 25.
