Looking for helpers at our beautiful property, set on 15 acres of land with tropical gardens; surrounded by the Australian Bush; with the occasional wild kangaroos hopping through; located in one of the most pristine beach towns in Queensland, between Bundaberg and Gladstone! .......'Agnes Water & Town of 1770.'
HISTORY ? Captain Cook landed his sailing ship here, back in the year 1770 (hence the name 'Town of 1770' ) A tiny town with a lot of hidden secrets .....but don't expect crowds, lots of shops and night life! DO expect lots of beautiful nature, lots of wild kangaroo sightings, national parks, deserted beaches and some of the friendliest people you will ever meet! We are the last surfing beach heading north ......first surfing beach heading south ! Named as One of the Top 5 Beaches in Australia; Gateway to the most pristine southern end of the Great Barrier Reef and are close to shopping centres, doctors, ambulance and all the basic amenities. We provide good clean accommodation in cute and cozy little cabins, light breakfast, free Wifi and free shuttles into town, in exchange for 15 hours per week, helping out with cleaning our very large private residence and some gardening. We have planted hundreds of plants and trees on the property, which are always in need of attention. We have an ultra cool communal area, swimming pool and our own small private lake. If you are looking for a workaway in one of the most pristine parts of the East Coast of Queensland, this is the place to be! Come chill out with us around the bonfire, bring your guitar, your bongos, your voice and make some magic with us !

The help is for a maximum of 15 hours per week, in exchange for good clean accommodation plus a light breakfast and free wifi. This help involves maintaining the grounds and gardens, tree planting, trimming and hedging, cleaning around around the house and maybe a little bit of your home country cooking (if you can cook) This still leaves plenty of time to enjoy all our beautiful area has to offer. We don't want you missing out on any of the activities!!
