This accomodation facility is set deep in the heart of the Australian bush and is located in an outdoor adventurers Disneyland!
Here is truely an amazing place, relaxing, rustic and quiet. Nearby are unique and local knowledge swimming holes, walking trails & mountain bike trails. In town is a company that does outdoor sports like canoeing, abseiling and high ropes. This really is a true Australian experience, off the beaten track, with very few backpackers visiting or working in the town.
In return for full accomodation, you are required to be a caretaker 4 hrs a day for a minimum of 2 weeks, daily work times will vary (maybe morning/ afteroon or split depending on guest arrival times).

Responsibilities include:
* Welcoming guests (including at odd hours)in a FRIENDLY, INVITING and HAPPY manner. You must be polite to guests at all times.
* Keeping the garden
* Basic renovation and maintenance work
* Non-standard cleaning (there is a cleaner)
* Lighting fire and collecting firewood
* Any other tasks as directed by the manager

This position is suited to those travelling as a couple, but this is not essential. At times it will feel solitary, however guests will be a form of conversation and you can leave the Lodge on your time off. There are volunteers and employees working across the road in a fine woodwork and art gallery center linked to this accomodation. You will need to report to an onsite Manager. You must be self motivated, be able to think of tasks on your own and have a genuine nature.

Having you own car is a definite advantage as there is no public transport in town. We will look at getting a couple of bikes. The kitchen is communal as is the bathroom. Rarely, there is exclusive bookings and you will be required to leave the premises (accomodation is provided for these nights). The pub is within walking distance.

This really is a unique oppotunity you won't be able to do anywhere else in Australia. It will be a highlight of your trip. If you enjoy a quite lifestyle, love to mix with the locals, want to improve your English, enjoy outdoor activities and generally like to be relaxed, please give me an email.
