Room available at the moment.

If any helpers are interested in staying for a month or more then I will pay pocket money of $100/week for the month.

We have a small Dairy and Hay farm on the Burnett Highway about 2 hours inland from Bundaberg, Gladstone and Rockhampton. I AM ALSO ABLE TO PICK YOU UP FROM EITHER OF THESE CITIES.

We have 3 children 15, 12 and 11 yrs old, so we would welcome any help on the farm, from helping in the dairy to learning the dairy, feeding calves, pigs & chickens, gardening(really in need of some help here).
Babysitting/Au Pair work or any housework(spring cleaning of house).

No smokers please as we have children.

Our farm is only 8 mins from the township of Monto. We also have 2 pigs, 5 piglets, 1 cattle dog, 2 cocker spaniel dogs, 3 Sheep, 1 horse, 1 cat and 7 chickens.

Your room has a double bed, desk and your own bathroom. There is laundry facilities and limited internet (as we do have to pay for downloads). All meals and accommodation are included in exchange for 4 to 6 hours of help.

Mobile phone service that we get here on the farm and in town is Telstra, Optus and Virgin, we do not get Vodafone service on the farm or in town.

We live only 15 mins away from Cania Gorge National Park and Cania Dam which has beautiful walks and scenery. When we can, we go waterskiing with family.

Please only enquire if you are serious about coming as I have had to turn too many helpers away because some have said they are coming and then cancel the day before thanks.
