Couples preferred .... The experience of a lifetime.... Come and stay in the Love Shack ... A tin shed nestled privately in the forest 1000m above sea level on the Atherton Tablelands at Ravenshoe. This awesome little hut has a composting toilet for true Eco living; a natural stream running past the front door; a campfire to watch on moonlit nights and a barbecue to wood fire your pizzas on.

The local community is friendly and more than happy to share a beer with you. All we ask in return is four hour's work per guest per day for accommodation, five if you'd like an evening meal and a snack for lunch. The jobs are endless so no level of skill is required. This property has enough work for the next 400 years so come and do your part. I will happily record your contribution and give you a reference for it. You can make a real difference here. Our first helpexers built the infrastructure for your stay... The shower, the toilet stand, the water pipes to the kitchen sink. What will you leave as your legacy? What skills do you bring to this part of the world? You should protect yourself with medical insurance before you travel, just in case, as medical expenses in Austraila may be high.

Your hours are flexible.... The tasks will be taught to you by my wonderful partner Jeff (who has the patience of a saint) ... You can pool your hours and take days off to go walking the beautiful wilderness paths on the Misty Mountain Trail. To express your interest please send the dates so I can consider your application. We have lots of replies and want to help as many people as possible. The local community can take 4-6 helpers at any one time so feel free to apply.

If you have a car, drive to Ravenshoe and we will guide you here..... Otherwise there is a bus from the Cairns Central Railway Platfform 1 to Atherton three times a day. Call us and arrange a pickup from Atherton. Happy travelling.... See you soon.
