Our Farm:
We own and operate a small Macadamia Nut farm in Yandina. We are making every effort to be organic, environmental and sustainable, so we are using natural means of soil fertility and remineralisation practices.
We are aiming for semi self sufficiency and creating a green corridor for the many and varied wild life that we have on the property. We have 7 acres of rainforest and 1 km of creek, so there are many nice spots for relaxing and enjoying nature and watching the abundant wild life.

Harvest starts in April, so we need help preparing the orchard and this year we are going to hand harvest. We have weeding and mulching needed, as well as some construction work. We can be flexible to cater your skills.

2 hours per day:
You supply your own van, and do your own meals and you get to live central on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland in a beautiful rainforest setting.

4 hours per day:
You supply your own van, we supply lunch and dinner.

5 hours per day:
We supply accommodation in a beautiful cabin. Lunch and dinner supplied. If you like cooking, help is appreciated for the evening meal. If you love cooking, you can take charge! Vegetarian can be accommodated, but we eat meat.

The HelpX room is a detached cabin not far from the house. There is a fire pit and outside table setting, and kangaroos greet you most mornings.

We have chickens, ducks, aviary birds and a house cat and a beautiful female doberman. Aiming for dairy goats, but need to build accommodation for them. We have several native bee hives for pollination. 4 European bee hives for honey. Recently we have put several nesting boxes for owls to encourage them to the farm, being natural predators for vermin. There are many birds, from small finches and honeyeaters to large parrots. Plenty of kangaroos in the paddocks and an occasional wallaby. There are goannas and lace monitors.
