We have accom suitable for a couple and a single. Its helpful if you are in QLD seeing the uncertainty around State boarders at present. Longer stay preferred. We have been hosting since 1998 and joined Helpx a few years ago. We're grateful to say we've had some really exceptional visitors from many countries. We are lucky to have a beautiful farm, our property is 14 acres in the hinterland of the Gold Coast, just on the ocean side of Mt Tamborine. There are 4 horses which are fed & cared for twice per day, peacocks and gardens. We don't have dogs so we have abundant wildlife who gather here daily. We are also wildlife carers & often have orphan native animals in our care or recently released on our farm.
There is so much to do on a farm, we have lots of projects on the go at the moment, from building stone gateways to house renovations, gardening, property maintenance, animal care, housework, window cleaning, mowing, weed control in our protected area, whatever we are doing at the time. Two days off each week. In saying that everything here is pretty laid back, you'll be helping a farming couple in their 50's potting around doing interesting projects & everyday farm stuff, you'll become part of our family while you are here. We are the opposite of the slave-driving factory farms.
Sorry we cannot cater for vegetarians,vegans or people with food allergies.
Helpers prepare their own breakfast (we supply), we prepare all other meals, which we eat together around a table.
No smokers please.
We will ask you to send us a pic of your ID please when you arrive.
We don't usually book you too far in advance because over the years we've had so many travellers change their plans and not turn up. Contact us if you are on the Gold Coast or in Brisbane or coming this way.
Unfortunately we are not in the right postcode for 2nd holiday visa.
We don't provide alcohol I'm sorry, but you may bring your own if you wish.

Remember to bring:
Covered shoes or boots
Long sleeves & long pants are needed sometimes.
Hat or cap
Insect repellent
Water bottle

Thanks for your wonderful experiences over the years
and safe travelling to you all .
