Shorter homestays are again available until 6 September. We usually follow the HelpX pattern of around 4 hours of work daily in return for accommodation and food.

We do prefer singles, but will consider a twosome. Ability to take on responsibility and good housekeeping skills are essential. Our gardening is pretty simple but there is lots of it!

We generally run out of work in a week. We will prefer short stays and do prefer to have at least a phone interview before welcoming guests. During that week there is time to look around and check out the farm work situation around Atherton
(atherton is central to farming area with multiple backpacker hostels on offer)

We are located around the corner from Atherton town but nearly surrounded by bush.
Opportunity to check out the farm worker situation on the Atherton Tablelands. Before committing to a hostel stay, explore what the farm work prospects are.

The town: Atherton, 1 1/2 hours from Cairns on Atherton Tablelands
The house: old and funky. located 1 km from town in beautiful bush setting next to hills full of walking/cycling tracks.
The people: An eccentric pair of Baby Boomers live here. 3 days weekly there are colleagues in my business working out of my home office. (of course, we have good WiFi as well as a spare computer). You have your own room.

Non-smokers and non-drug users only please. Although it looks like we are in the bush, an urgent requirement for no loud music and/or parties as it is, in fact, a very quiet neighbourhood.

The Atherton Tablelands boasts plentiful waterfalls, stunning scenery and abundant wildlife. This is an ideal location to get to some of the most visited tourist attractions on the Tablelands as well as some of the lesser known natural splendours.

Information on the Atherton Tablelands can be found here:-
