A few months ago, I purchased a beautiful property 15 minutes from Malanda on the southern Atherton Tablelands, North Queensland. The property has a creek and about 30 Hectares of rainforest with cassowaries walking through the yard.

I intend to slowly create a botanical garden on the 2.5 hectare cleared areas. This will include organic veggie gardens, terraced garden areas and some tropical fruit trees.

There is a new cabin with bathroom and a large covered patio for couples, or a spare room with Queen bed in the main house.

I'm male, in my fifties with some physical disabilities, and would appreciate help from anyone who would like to help create a little piece of paradise.

There is also some carpentry and tiling work required in the main house.

I am an omnivore but will cater to and welcome vegos and vegans, but will need help with vegan meals.

The two large birds shown below are Southern Cassowaries, "Big-Bird" is thought to be a 4-5 year-old male, and "Junior", less than one year, sex unknown. One or both usually drop by on a daily basis.

The cabin has just had the patio roof and paving done, and I am now transplanting mature tree-ferns to create a little fenced in tropical garden.

The two dark birds on the timber frame are male Rifle Birds, one of three species of Birds of Paradise we have in Australia. They were taking turns in displaying their hypnotic dance, trying to woo a female as she sat watching their efforts. She is in the near top right of image.
