We are a horse riding school located in the beautiful wet tropics region of Kuranda - just 30 minutes from Cairns in Far north Queensland.

Our property has 12 horses ranging in size and breed, we have chickens, goats, ducks & friendly dogs too.

We are a family based riding school with facilities including a large arena and roundyard.

We are looking for two (2) mature helpers that can join us on our property to assist with general care and maintenance of the animals on a daily basis, and occasionally help with looking after our 2 children (3yrs & 11yrs). Other tasks will include light cleaning duties and the possibility of helping out with horse riding lessons.

Ideally the suitable persons for this position will already have horse riding and handling skills already, but not essential as we will provide you the basic training to safely do the tasks needed.

Daily the work will be approx 3 to 4hrs, with a few extra hours work here and there for odd tasks. The work is generally only a few hours early morning and then an hour or so in the late afternoon so that way you will have the opportunity to spend your days enjoying the surrounds and visiting attractions that makes Cairns the number-1 holiday destination in Queensland, or you can just stay on the farm and relax!

In exchange of your efforts we will provide you with accommodation on our property, You'll have a clean & leak free caravan complete with kitchen, and airconditioner. It has a double bed and a table that converts ino another bed.
We'll provide you with weekly groceries to prepare your own meals, as well as offer you free WiFi broadband internet & Satellite TV. There is access to hot showers and bathroom too.

In addition to what we offer, dependent on your horse knowledge and riding abilities you'll also have the opportunity to go occasionally horseback riding or join in with assisting the teaching of students with an instructor!

Situated nearby is a small convenience store, a tavern and lagoon style pool, as well as many walking tracks through the rainforest. We are only 5 minutes drive away from Kuranda Village, and there is also a bus stop directly outside our property that offers bus transfers to and from Cairns and the Tablelands daily.

If you are interested, please contact us. We can only accommodate 2 persons at a time. The position would suit a couple, or two individuals, that can work either together or independantly. We are interested in knowing your skills too as we always have new projects happening!.

We hope to hear from you soon!
