We have a farm at the top of the Pioneer Valley 80 km west of Mackay. It has a mixed tropical and subtropical climate, as it is about 800 meters up in the ranges. Winter is lovely - cool and dry, while summer can be hot and wet. The local village is small with a pub, post office, cafe and local shop. Our farm and the village are on the edge of the Eungella National Park

We have 220 acres/92 hectares of mixed rainforest and grazing land with a number of creeks and springs. We are slowly clearing out weed and restoring to good care. We are running beef cattle and are planning to start growing timber soon.

Accomodation is simple but comfortable. I live in a caravan, while our guests live in a large comfortable shed. All the comforts are available ie hot and cold running water, bath and shower, landline, wifi, mobile phone access, etc. TV and film are available by streaming.

I would dearly like a hand with the work that needs 2 people. It can be hard but at the end of the day is very satisfying.

The work ranges from helping with cattle, building and maintaining fences, tractor work such as cutting tracks, spraying lantana, preparing and planting timber seedlings, or any of the many other jobs that need to be done around a farm. We are also building a small machinery shed.

If you do not have transport I can pick you up from Mackay.
