Hi Workawayer's, I'm Karen,
I prefer people with some life and work experience with good English 25yrs+! Also hard work ethic and not afraid to get dirty. Experience with swinging a pick and shovel is an advantage.
Right now I need help with too many Kangaroos. Feeding, cleaning and picking up poo.
Also I've had some big trees cut down and need help with clearing up the mess.
Other Jobs can be Painting, digging, bush regenerating, and more.
When you come here it isn't all about the animals, it's working in the bush, to maintain wildlife, habitat.
I live on 11Acres of real (native) Australian Bush with winding tracks and Rainforest at the creek.
It contains a few rare native plants and there lots of different ferns, palms, rainforest plants, vines and very tall gum trees.
The creek has natural beauty even when it is dry.
I'm a licenced wildlife carer and conservationist and my property is classed as "land for wildlife"
I also have a Certificate 3 in Conservation and land management, and Cert 2 in Horticulture.
At the moment I have 13 Eastern Grey Kangaroos in care, and another 15 released Roo's and Red Necked Wallaby's living here.
In the hot weather the Eastern Water Dragons and Land Mullets lay about on logs soaking up the sun.
Possums wander about in the evening.
I renovated a site office and turned it into a home to live in.
A shipping container provides work shop and storage. And a second container has been turned into clean, comfortable backpackers accomidation but there is no heating or cooling, so you have be tough and live within the elements.
My workawayers are allowed one square foot of wall space to leave there international mark. The wall is growing and is fun to read.
This property is totally self sufficient which means there are no phone cables, no power lines and no water pipes........a "stand alone" solar system provides electricity, water from tanks and mobile phone and wireless Internet have great reception. BRILLIANT!
Experience with manual labor is preferred.
The work is hard but rewarding.
The animals you might find here are:
Leaches and heaps more.
PLEASE DON'T APPLY IF YOUR NOT INTO HARD WORK OR CREEPY CRAWLIES!!
I only take people for short stays 7-10 days.
I can pick you up from Taree train station, or the state to state Bus/Coaches stop at Nabiac.
If you have your own car it's only 20 minuets to the beautiful beaches of Forster, or you can come with me into town on a day off.
PLEASE NOTE: I only provide 3 meals a day, so if you want anything to snack on between meals or alcohol they are at your own expense.
On Days off we usually go into town and do shopping and sight seeing but you feed yourselves.
Contact me for any questions,
And please include your private email address.
