My name is Craig. I'm a children's author and songwriter.

My Partner Margaret is a full time mum to our daughter and ex primary school teacher.

We are located 70km from the nearest shops {Manapori and Te Anau} in the far south western corner of the South Island. It's only a few km from fiordland national park and lake Monowai. 2 hours and 15 mins drive from Queenstown heading south west. Our log cabin has 3 bedrooms, and lots of land. Because it's our holiday home we don't get to look after the land as much as we would like so we need some help to clear the land.

We are willing to supply accommodation (your own room) in our 3 bedroomed log cabin, 3 meals a day and all the local advice for walks etc in your down time in exchange for 4 hours of work per person per day.

Because of it's proximity to Fiordland national park some of the best and secluded walks and treks are located just a few km away. Work is predominately "on the land" clearing weeds and small bush. Lawn mowing,. Things of this nature. Although we may be after some child minding from time to time also. It's best that you have transport to get here however depending on the nature of your travels we may be able to offer you a ride from Queenstown if the timing is correct or from Te Anau if you can get yourself there. We are a couple with a toddler (young child). Our main house is in Queenstown and we tend to visit this location in the summer months and on occasion in the winter.
