Mid July/August ...you have the opportunity to go fishing and whalewatching during the winter and camping on Hinchinbrook island during spring (September/October) to catch Barramundi and see crocodiles in the wild and maybe even spend overnight trips (when the weather suits) to the Great Barrier Reef for fishing, snorkelling .... but please be aware that these boating/fishing trips are special to me...its PHONE-FREE TIME for these trips and people that will help prepare and clean up and wash down the boat and gear before and after trips and take life as it comes will be invited on these trips....

Its great place in the tropics to escape the winter cold of the southern states and enjoy living in a quiet,natural environment where you can learn and experience real tropical jungle living ...as well as seeing how you can create a lifestyle and perhaps learning some of the skills needed to turn a patch of dirt into a home and small business that provides our entire income...we also welcome people that already have various skills and talents to make our place even better..

Projects at the moment (July/August) include building a new shadehouse, making some concrete pathways...

For days off you can go for jungle walks around the property or through the adjoining national park and maybe bump into a rare Cassowary or swimming in the numerous swimming holes along our mountain stream.Sometimes we also get out fishing in the rivers and islands to chase the famous Barramundi...

We do have unlimited wifi which you can use on your time off and days off and even to skype your family and friends...

We prefer people to arrive on Monday at the beginning of our work week so it doesn`t disrupt our routine and gives us time to enjoy our boating and leisure time....although days off can be anytime depending on the best weather and tides for boating and fishing and getting the work out of the way first...you need to be pretty flexible because we don`t live a typical 9-5 lifestyle..if you need to drink bottled water, sip lattes, live in resort-like conditions with a maid service then you should look elsewhere ..we enjoy living an basic, environmentally aware and low impact lifestyle where everyone pitchs in to do their share...

NO SMOKERS,excessive drinkers or drug users....we also don`t cater to vegetarians and/or fussy eaters or special diets....You must like to eat fresh fish (When we catch them),beef.pork,chicken,curries,stews etc..

We have an online tropical plant nursery business with extensive gardens and tropical fruit trees surrounded by jungle...we grow and sell an amazing range of plants from all over the tropical world..many of which we grow around the property..

28 hrs over 5 days per week required .We have structured work hours as this is a farm business.

Accommodation is a basic self contained 2 bedroom house with bathroom and kitchenette . All meals provided sometimes with the family, sometimes self serve. Days off you can cook for yourselves with the food we provide.

Our place is out of town and totally surrounded by rainforest so you will have to enjoy a quiet place to stay and be comfortable around insects.
We also have 3 DOGS WHO WE TREAT AS PART OF OUR FAMILY as well as chickens,ducks and Guinea fowl so you must be comfortable and enjoy being around animals..

After work you are free to use the wireless internet but you must have your own laptop or phone... we don`t lend out our own computer or phone
