The house is on a 1/4 acre and we grow organic, tropical fruit trees and vegetables. At the moment, we have 8 chickens, a duck and a fluffy, white Maltese/cross dog (Fonzie).
The spare room has its own entrance. Three meals per day are supplied (vegetarian) for 5 hours work a day. After that you can explore the island or you can take the kayak to the beach, which is in walking distance from the house. Usually you can swim the whole winter or do any other water sport (at your own expenses).
You can walk to the Forts and you might be lucky to see koalas in the wild. We have possums, kangaroos, wallabies, echidnas, curlews and other wild life visiting at home.
Besides doing a bit of house work (washing dishes after meals), I like you to do some weeding or helping with fixing some work in the garden. By all means, contact me via E-mail for what work needs to be done at that time. No smoking or drinking at the premises, please.
I don't take people from October till May. And I like only people, who give their 100% and start work at 7.00 am. This is for your own good, as it can get rather hot around twelve o'clock. I want only people, who don't mind hard work and getting dirty. As I like to have the place tidy and clean before the cyclones start.
From May on there will be a lot of weeding and trimming of trees to be done.
I'm also looking for somebody, who is an handy man. As my chook house still needs to be made possum proof after cyclone "Yasi". My new girls would like a nice, waterproof area. Can you help them?

When you're a plumber or carpenter, you're always welcome. And, please, let me know in time, when you like to come. I get often request at a short moment and have to disappoint people, as I have also other commitments.

PS: I don't sign second year papers.
