Small family farm in the beautiful World Heritage Wet Tropics region, 3 hours drive north of Cairns at the mouth of the Bloomfield River. There is crocodile spotting on the river, fishing and swimming in local freshwater creeks (no crocs), Weary Bay Beach and fresh coconuts for drinking and eating! Free Yoga tuition available from a qualified teacher.We grow fruit, a few veges and many weeds this year - why we need help- using organic, biodynamic methods and preparations. We have chickens and 1 dog. Accommodation for helpers is a large 2 room canvas tent pitched in a new very large shed with high roof and no walls (very cool). Bathroom is at the house. Helpers have some cooking facilities or can share house kitchen. Helpers are expected to clean up after themselves. We need help with gardening including weeding fertilizing, mulching, making a biodynamic compost heap, and tree planting. Or cooking and cleaning and odd jobs around the house always need doing. We eat healthy fresh food, meat and locally caught fish lots of fresh veges, but can provide any other foods which helpers require. We usually rest in the heat of the day and only work in the cool times or in the shade. There are beautiful swimming holes nearby. Internet, wifi and landline phone is available but mobile phone reception is a few klms away. The property belongs to my son and his partner and we all come and go according to work and other commitments.
We are needing help for a few weeks each month from 3rd June till 14th June, then from 2nd July to 19th July. Other helpx opportunities are usually available with our neighbours.

Weather is beautiful at the moment. I can give you a ride up and/or back or there is a bus from Cairns to Bloomfield every second day which returns the next day for $64. It's important to us that you have a comfortable and enjoyable stay at our place.
