Genuine people only please. Kadanji Cottage needs a travelling pair or a couple. We would also consider a solo traveller if you don`t mind working alone some days. The property is just over two hectares (five acres) in tropical North Queensland near Kuranda, 45 minutes from Cairns, with one third dedicated to a beautiful tropical landscaped garden. The balance is natural bushland with a dam, native wildlife including wallabies, a huge range of bird life and frogs. There are also chickens, a veggie garden, a variety of tropical fruit trees and a very friendly dog.

My name is Jeanette and I really love good company and meeting interesting, easy going people who share my love of life, laughter and good food and discovering all the wonders of this tropical wonderland. While here as my guests you are treated as family and most stays are one to two weeks.

This homestay is perfect for you if you love gardening, have an appreciation of nature and can help maintain this little piece of paradise. Your work includes gardening, a bit of home maintenance, landscaping, gardening (it`s a big garden), a little bit of building and keeping the dog and chickens company.

Kadanji Cottage is also looking for people with building and landscaping skills to work on upgrading shed and redesigning elements of the garden. Longer term stayers will be considered if you can assist in this.

Shared home cooked meals featuring local produce and a lovely comfortable room featuring a queen size bed or capacity to house two singles in separate rooms are provided in the home.

However, no smokers or drug users please.

The property is close to natural swimming holes at Davies Creek and Emerald Creek and national parks and is only 45 minutes from Cairns. I encourage you to take time out to explore these!

Helpers must not be afraid of hard work as gardening in the tropics can be challenging at times and I really need help, particularly following recent flooding as a result of Cyclone Nora. However, you are not expected to work in the heat of the day.

Musicians and music lovers are also welcome. Kadanji Cottage is a registered house concert venue and hosts regular music events.

Own transport preferred - however, can pick up helpers from Cairns during the week or from Kuranda on weekends.
