I have 480 acres 15km from Tully. There is 100 acres of tropical rainforest with horse & 4x4bike trails in it. There is 300head of cattle which we muster & move from paddock to paddock and I've got paw paws. I have two young children, I have them for 5 days in every 14 days. The house is a modern open plan house.

If you are an animal lover, you will be happy, I have 5 border collies working dogs, 7 horses at the moment, 4 chooks, a cat, a fish and even pigs.

We like to do some activities during the days off or free time such as fishing, go to the beach, horse ride for ex riders, go to the local swimming holes in summer or eventually go to snorkel, dive and fish to the barrier reef.

Work is helping with all the above.
The main occupation of the farm at the moment are the paw paws, it can be busy some weeks or only a few days, it really depends of the period.
That's why, if we get busy and you work over 28 hours a week on the paw paws,I can pay you and make it count for your second year visa.
If we all get free time, I would be happy to take you with me for some of those activities, but if I am to busy with the farm, you're welcome to enjoy your free time visiting the area of Tully which is a little paradise. It 's easier for you with a car but no worries, you don't have to have one.

For the house, as long as you're here, it is like your home so I expect you to help with the everyday tasks such as dishwashing, cooking if you know how to cook, clean the tables, sweep the floor sometimes but this is just part of sharing a house and be independent.

welcome long stays for the right people.
