It is now August-Temps are 15-27degs,Cyclone Debbie scored a direct hit on our cedar Views in March 2017!!-it looks a lot better now as we work out from the house/garage and gardens into the forest and other areas.3 Hours a day for bed and food,it is a nudist stay for all helpers,that is an Alternative experience most of the time except when clothes are required to work or it is cold.Lots to do,tools to use,skills to learn and for those enjoying the tasks and lifestyle- there will be extra rewarded hours available for those wanting to improve their travel funds.Wake up with the native bird songs and flowers.It is non-smoking, only rarely drinking, mainly vegetarian/mixed diet stay.Stone wall building and some painting and Art timber work projects when the weather is right for long stay Helpers.Work just in the mornings usually,I enjoy helping those learning English. We accept couples or females only.The Pool area is now repaired and the wi-fi is available there for those who need it.By car-15mins to beach,5mins to town,12mins to airport,6mins to train,10mins to waterfall, 20mins to dam. pick up is in Proserpine in the mornings.We have now had a lot of helpers and the response has been mostly good,some still come who are not true Helpxer`s however. We do not take single guys due to the nudism Alternative Lifestyle,sorry...The cyclone damage from Dylan,Edna,Ita,Antony,Ului and Debbie -is still being undertaken-clearing downed trees,repairing structures etc..We look forward to our next helpers joining us and enjoying their time with us.
Due to Govt. changes to W.H.Visas it is not viable for many travelers as the Govt. takes 1/3 of every dollar earnt with no exemptions.It is probably a better deal to come to Australia on a 3 month tourist visa and do a WHV in New Zealand then return to Australia for another Tourist stay.We have found that long stay helpers find using our place as a base and doing short stay 2nd.Visa paidwork north and south of the Whitsundays works quite well.Those who are well organized can arrange stays with us in advance as you can arrive all year.Those Helpers who love it here and want to have"a long stay"-there is `English`English Language help during their stay and extra assistance with information to assist them in staying longer in Aust.Bookings for 2018 can be taken if you are well organised,enjoy a fun and safe year.A book project has been added also-so anyone with a writing interest and good computer skills would be most helpful.A stay with us would suit a person who is a Black Sheep,does not follow the crowd and who searches for a different life.An Interest in the,Beauty Spa Industry-thats our Small business on the coast, would benefit some helpers.As you have read this far,you may have Computer & Internet skills that would assist Mike to set up a Website for a self published Book.This would probably mean a month or more of Paid work so it would only suit a long stay Helper,thank you Mike.
