Come and experience life on a working cattle, seed and hay property. We run 500 head of cattle over 2 properties, with 250 head here on our 570 Ha home farm, set in a beautiful valley. Work around the property includes tasks such as mustering, stock work in the cattle yards, fencing and machinery and vehicle maintenance. Work in our seed and hay business could involve helping with cleaning and bagging grass seed or coming along for the drive when we deliver hay. We rely on 4WD motor bikes and tractors for many tasks and will take the time to train you how to use these safely. Apart from farm work, we also look for help in our garden and vegetable garden as well as odd jobs in and around the house. We take care to work with safety in mind at all times and take the time to explain safety to our guests. Travel insurance is recommended.

We are a friendly family of three and enjoy sharing our home with visitors, especially at meal times. A separate and spacious guest area with ensuite, air-conditioning/heating, wireless internet access and large flat screen TV is yours to relax in after work. There is a swimming pool for hot summer days. Unfortunately mobile coverage is limited.

Our nearest town, Gympie, is half an hour away. Travellers can get to Gympie by bus from Brisbane or from the north. We go to town several times a week and are happy to pick up and drop off travellers who do not have their own transport and to take them to town with us whenever we go.

We are on the doorstep of the beautiful Sunshine Coast, with Noosa only an hour away. An hour in the opposite direction is the jumping off point for the World Heritage listed Fraser Island.

Singles, pairs or couples are welcome. As farm work is so varied we recommend a minimum two week stay so that visitors can gain a variety of experiences. Longer stays are possible if there is enough work and everyone is getting along well enough. We like to meet people before making a firm commitment to longer stays.

No skills or previous experience are necessary, just enthusiasm and a willingness to try something new.
