We are 2 families living outside the historical town of Herberton, 15 minutes to Atherton and 2 hours to Cairns. We are on the southern edge of the beautiful Atherton Tablelands, 15 30 minutes to waterfalls, swimming holes, lakes and the Wet Tropics World Heritage Rainforests. There's lots to see in the local area, we love nature, the river and State Forest walking trails are on the doorstep. For longer stays there are opportunities to borrow our kayaks to take to the surrounding lakes and to camp for the weekend.

Current inside jobs include general cleaning, house work and some renovation work like tiling. Outside work is tending vegetable gardens, mulching, weeding and helping with rock work landscaping. This will all be with guidance from us so it's fine if you have never done this before. Just be ready to learn. :-)

You can start early and spend the day swimming or exploring the area. Own car would be needed for daily trips to further afield though.

We try to give visitors a variety of jobs to keep it interesting or to suit the weather where possible.

You have your own room (suits single or 2 people happy to share a double bed). Food is provided for breakfast with shared sit-down lunch and dinners together.

No smokers please.

In exchange for food and accommodation we require 4-5hrs assistance a day.

We want you to enjoy your time here so we will try to be flexible with work times. If you would like days off we just ask for extra time to cover.

Unfortunately, we are not able to provide 2nd year visas.

We love meeting people from around the world so come and share your culture with us. We are looking forward to meeting you

Jean and Michael
