We are based on Banks Peninsula, close to Christchurch city. We are looking for some help with all sorts of projects- from small buildings, plumbing to making swings and slides as well as the usual work in the garden and campground. You get your own sunny cabin and we ask for only 3hrs work a day. Or if you have a tent or van, we ask for one hours work. You would provide your own food etc and cook for yourselves so you eat what and when you like. This would best suit a couple, or group of friends. Your own transport is ideal so you can use your free time to explore the wonders of Banks Peninsula.
We don't care when you start work, as long as it is for 3 or 4 hours a day. So if you like a sleep in, that's fine with us. We also have wireless for you to check emails and facebook. You provide your food so you eat what and when you like. It is best if you have your own transport so you can explore the area extensively.

We'd like to share our piece of paradise with travellers interested in getting to know a bit about New Zealand.

Part of the property is protected under the Banks Peninsula Conservation Trust. It is home to stands of centuries old native tress, such as Kahikatea, Matai and Totara. Second growth hardwood species include Kanuka, Manuka, Manatu Kowhai, Kotukutuku, Tarata, Kawakawa, Mahoe and Puahou. The birdlife is diverse with bellbirds, fantails, wood pigeons and occasional tui.

With only 2% of the native bush that once covered this area remaining it is a unique haven for the biodiversity of Banks Peninsula.

Walks through the eighteen acres range from a ten minute ramble to an hour long circumnavigation, which includes boardwalks and stunning views of the surrounding valley. Accommodation is in one of several cabins.
