We are a Spanish/Australian couple living in Cairns. We run an internet based travel business from home and are generally very busy.

Throughout the year, we accept helpers every now and then to help around the house and garden. We offer free accommodation, meals and snacks in exchange for 4 hours work each day. Helpers have full use of our home, laundry, swimming pool and wi-fi, and are part of the family while they are with us. We can normally offer them their own room.

But when we have a big project on, we need more helpers and we have to squash in a little bit. Sleeping may be on a mattress in our son's toy room, for example. It is a fun atmosphere when we have lots of helpers. The most we have ever had was seven at one time - fun, hardworking people from all around the world - France, Italy, Morocco, Germany, Hong Kong - a lot of laughs!

Guests may have the option to work 8 hours EVERY SECOND DAY, so you have every other day free to go diving, snorkelling or lie on the beach. There's lots to do here, and we can get you a discount on reef trips, rental cars etc not just while you're with us here in Cairns but all round Australia and New Zealand.

We prefer helpers who can stay at least 7 days.

Steve, Maria and Nicholas
