Come to Lofty Meadows, and help recover our organic gardens and return them to their former glory.

Our 5 acre block is situated in Highvale, Queensland. We are just 35km north west of Brisbane at the base of the D'Aguliar range. The area is rural and we are surrounded by beautiful mountains. Mt. Glorious is the closest and with an altitude of 600m and it's lush sub tropical rainforests has a wealth of bush walks for people to enjoy. Our surrounding local communities are rich in the arts with Mt.Nebo and Mt.Glorious being the hub for local artists and musicians.

The accommodation is in a rustic recycled timber hut we built in the forest Our place is simple and not for the faint hearted accustomed to expensive accommodation.

We also have insects and the usual Australian wildlife, SNAKES & SPIDERS included...all a part of living in the bush. To us it is very civilised and our three children and all our helpers are safe but if you don't like nature you probably won't like it here :)

We moved here in June 2007 and have been busy building, planting, gardening, landscaping and enjoying the 'good life'. Dave and I are passionate about music, alternative education, home grown food and both work in our local Steiner school that our children attend.

We have 20 chickens and two Miniture dachshund named Martin Luther King Jr and Poppy. We have two blogs where you can check out photos and projects we are working on.

We offer food, internet access, local knowledge, accomodation and most importantly -Fun -in exchange for your work.

We also have a boat- a 23 ft sloop that we like to sail on when we can

Most days start at 7-8am-so if you are not a morning person you might not like it.

Also please note we are in the greater Brisbane area and so unfortunately unable to sign for second year visa as listed on this website http://www.immi.gov.au/visitors/working-holiday/417/postcodes.htm
