Hi, We are a remote area accommodation run by a small happy family surrounded by the beautiful Cape York rainforest, next to Iron Range national park and close to many picturesque beaches and amazing reef and river fishing spots. Our guests include contractors, birdwatchers, environmentalists,travellers and people keen to see Cape York and surrounds.
We are located in a pristine, remote environment but are still close to the airport which has direct links to Cairns. The town of Lockhart River is 6k's away and has all services, including a prestigious Aboriginal art centre, fuel, ATM and a comprehensive supermarket.
We would prefer someone who is fit, capable and easy going. The work involves mowing (using a ride-on), some simple maintenance, gardening, also preparation with cooking and cleaning cabins.
You will have your own airconditioned cabin.
We would like you to work 4 hours per day for food and accommodation. The work is not hard and the 4 hours are very flexible so that you are able to have a social life and plenty of time out for exploring our fantastic part of the world.
We are an adult family and have several boats, quad bikes, cars, friendly dogs and we love our fishing, diving, adventuring. We eat good food and have plenty of fish, prawns, crayfish etc and we grow fruit and vegetables in the season.
At present it is the dry season, so if you have a 4WD vehicle you can drive in. In the wet season the roads get flooded therefore you need to fly in. We will either pay for your flight or pick you up in Cairns if necessary. The flights from Cairns are expensive therefore we would expect you to stay at least a few months and then we would reimburse your fare at the end of your time. If you are handy, have skills or qualifications such as mechanic or carpenter etc, we could also pay you for any extra work that may be required.
We have had people from helpx and other organisations and they were very happy with us.
