Hans and I have travelled extensively all over the world having the opportunity to meet many great people. We adore living in tropical north Queensland and always have many projects happening. Many to do with tropical fruit trees and gardens and houses. We enjoy having people for a cultural exchange with many varied tasks.We are in a very natural and beautiful part of Australia. We love having younger people around us. You would stay at a house with other volunteers with a chance to mix with other nationalities. We hope this would be a cultural exchange for you and an opportunity to help one another while you meet, learn help and benefit from this exchange. We are very happy taking young people who want to experience their first time away from home along with more mature couples and singles.
The area is 1hr north of Cairns near the Daintree Rainforest and Great Barrier Reef. A very quiet natural environment.

Beautiful area Northern Queensland, near beaches. There is a bus to the Daintree 3 times a week. If we are going into Port Douglas there is also bus transport that has to be ordered. We can help you organize trips to the Great Barrier Reef, Daintree Rainforest, Wildlife Habitat and Hartleys crocodile adventure.
A great area for jogging and long beach walks.
Other activities - walk the Mossman Gorge, snorkel the Barrier Reef, crocodile farm, tropical wildlife sanctuaries, beach walks. A beautiful winter climate.
Expectations of cleanliness -where you live and the surrounds and care of equipment and keeping clean and tidy working areas is most important. Total respect for guests, for the environment and close community you will be living in.
Definitely not a party area. We hope this is an opportunity to meet, learn help and benefit. Ideal for those that love nature and a quiet time.
