Please note: We do not have a farm & are not able to sign the paperwork for working holiday visas.
As we are inviting you into our home, some information about you is ideal, please write a profile.

We need helpers to have good enough English skills for communication.


We are a family of 3, living in our 6 1/2 year old, sustainably built, solar powered home, with glorious views over Byron Bay & north up the coast to Queensland.

Looking for skilled singles), a couple or 1-2 people traveling together.
We are now running a B&B & will have guests some of the time you would be here. Some of the work relates to changing the rooms & we also need helpers to be sensitive to the business whilst staying.

Especially keen for permaculture/ organic/ biodynamic input.

It is ideal if you have your own transport, as there is a very limited bus service. However we have had helpers stay without transport.
Byron Bay 10 mins, Bangalow 5 mins, Ballina 30 mins, Gold Coast airport 45 mins.

The work: re-oiling the timber of the house, brush-cutting, mulching, planting, gardening, weeding, landscaping, carpentry, window cleaning & some house cleaning. 5 hours a day , 5 days a week (hours can be reconfigured), in exchange for food & accommodation.

The accommodation: a room with a queen bed & a shared bathroom: very comfortable.

The food: we eat well, a varied diet, mostly local, often organic produce & expect to share food prep & like to take turns cooking. If you do not cook & are willing to "have a go" with some direction, that is great.
We provide 3 meals, if you want sweets & chocolate etc, then feel free to bring them with you.
If you would like to join us for a drink, then please bring some beer or wine to contribute. Vegans may need to self cater?

We love to share our home & enjoy the cultural exchange of living with travelers from other lands.

We expect helpers to show initiative & to have life skills, to have lived away from home & taken care of themselves for some time, or if traveling fresh from the family home, to have training in self responsibility.

We prefer non-smokers, smokers would need to smoke away from the house.
Please quote the word "banana" in your email application to us.
