Tropical Island Paradise

We have a Two story house and a large wooden Pirate boat on our property. We are only a 300m walk from the surf beaches, and we are only a couple hours from Brisbane city.

Our house and boat are in need of restoration / renovation. So If you have building/construction skills, consider yourself most welcome.
However, we also have lots of little jobs that suits people with different skills: painting, sanding, planting, garden maintenance, etc.

Please understand, we really dont have any paid work to offer, but can offer a great beach holiday in exchange for a small amount of help.

We only ask for 2 hours of help, per person, per day, in return for accommodation in a private, self-contained unit.

The unit has a large king-sized bed, private bedroom lounge area, kitchen, fridge, shower, toilet, etc, and sleeps 3 people comfortably. Sorry, no TV or WiFi.

The unit is the bottom story of our house.... and its a little rough, but it is lock-able, private, clean, comfortable.

Our place is within walking distance to great surf beaches, and backs onto bush reserve. There are great walking tracks, freshwater lakes, and national parks. The Island is rich in its diversity of native wildlife, great numbers of koalas, kangaroos, wallabys' roam wild accross the Island. Loads of native birds, and the ocean is also teaming with marine creatures all year round.

We live in a friendly neighbourhood, and there is food outlets, a pub, bowls club, ATM, all within walking distance of our place.

There is public transport links from Brisbane to our front door if you are travelling lite.

You will need to organise how you will travel to the Island. Please check 'Stradbroke Island Ferry' website for vehicle, and passenger connections. Also See, 'Stradbroke Flyer Service' for walk-on passengers only.

Stradbroke Island (Minjerribah) is one of the most unique and beautiful locations on the eastern coast of Australia, come and find out why! See ya soon.
