We are looking for a fit young man to help us with general gardening/farm maintenance on our rural property 2 hours south west of Brisbane. You may also be required to feed the chickens, Molly the dog and our canary, Pedro.

The majority of the work required is outside, garden or farm work which may include mowing, weeding, whipper-snipping, firewood collection, etc. Right now we are building rock walls and doing other garden landscaping jobs.

We are a retired couple who have a large ornamental garden, an organic vegetable garden, chickens, a dog and a bird. There are also a lot of wallabies, kangaroos and native birds living around our property.

We live off the grid on 160 acres of rugged hill country and have our own solar system for electricity and hot water and we collect all our water supply. Because our water supply is limited, water restrictions apply such as short showers, not using the washing machine every day and not letting water run unless necessary.

We are offering 15 to 20 hours per week (flexible and negotiable) with plenty of time to explore the local area (mountains, rivers, vineyards, forests, historic towns).

As there is no regular public transport in the area, having your own vehicle would be an advantage.

We have a separate large, comfortable, self-contained house with all facilities including wifi. While we will share some meals, you will be provided with food of your choice to enable you to prepare your own meals if you wish to do so in your accommodation.

Strictly NON SMOKERS only.

Length of stay negotiable and you can start anytime.
We are 16 kms from the nearest town.

We speak French and a little German.
