We cannot offer visa extension.

Looking for exchange of about 5 hours daily,(about 25 hrs weekly), for accommodation and food, we share evening meals only, but provide food for other meals. You would need to be fairly independent, while comfortable with some friendly interaction from us. We need help in the farm house with laying vinyl tiles,painting,cleaning,basic garden work etc. Please also expect to participate in cleaning up after yourself and helping with evening meal preparation and washing up.

We are couple living on a lifestyle farm. We have lots of bamboo, trees and mountains. Accommodation in a separate large older house, no mobile phone network, but internet is available via satellite at our house.

There is a lot of natural bushland, birds, wallabies. We believe it is a naturally spiritual place due to its location and solitude. Mark and I have interest in permaculture (but aren't practicing it), spirituality and have a broad range of interests besides the property, for instance we have been sailing to Tangalooma Island on our sailboat. We usually really enjoy the company of travellers and try to get to know the people who stay here while respecting people's privacy also.

Please bring hat, raincoat, good walking shoes/boots, torch (and gators if worried about snakes). Old long sleeve shirts for working around bamboo, and insect repellant and sunscreen. We are 17 klm from any shops. Better if you have your own vehicle, but not essential.

Alcohol in moderation okay. Smoking outside okay.

We have limited tank water, so once a day, short showering habits would be 5-10 minutes only.

We are 25 minutes from Gatton, 1 3/4 hours from Brisbane Central by car, 45 minutes from Toowoomba. We can pick up from Gatton Coach or rail/bus stop.
