We have a banana farm situated 40 mins drive west of Cairns near Mareeba on the tablelands.
We would like to also note that the farm is under new management since May 2012 where our services appeared to have started going downhill.

We can sign your documents for a second year Visa

Work comprises mainly of field and packing work involving bananas. These include deleafing, picking, desuckering, weeding, fertilising, packing, drying etc. At times, we may require some gardening/house work at the main farm house.

We provide same sex shared air-conditioned accommodation, with all amenities including Kitchen, Internet, laundry etc.. free of charge.
When there are no guests, we also occasionally allow use of the swimming pool and the tennis court.

We require you to work for 30hrs a week and additional paid hours are available.
We expect you to work from 8am daily

There are a variety of wildlife around the farm, including wallabies and kangaroos, many bird species, possums, and if you're lucky, you may spot an echidna. We also have a creek running through the property.

We can pick you up from Cairns CBD and drop you back when you leave.
We are 8km from Mareeba township and 40mins from Cairns.
Temperature ave day 22-28*C; night 15-20*C, low humidity, 500mtrs above sea level.

We look forward to hearing from you
