    Older Baptist Lady with foster and adopted animals living in a suburban cottage with a rainforest of a backyard. My animal family and I have a loose routine but stick to it every day as one does with pets. They live upstairs too and are smoochy, lovable kids. We have a fledgling vegie and herb garden, enjoy camp fires in the yard and I cook vegan meals for myself and whoever stays. I volunteer with a nfp and also run a community outreach program for displaced ppl and their pets dropping off food, goods, blankets etc and helping in whatever way we can. Please note- My work does get busy and at times stressful particularly dealing with rescue issues. I need ppl that can listen to instruction and get the jobs done in a timely manner.
    I take my animals to a beautiful quiet beach an hour away once a fortnight and we walk in a nearby park every few days. It's a vibrant life spent with wonderful Animal companions.

    A lovely Public pool is across the Rd. Hospital is 5 doors down. I need help to get the animals down steps and supervised whilst we're at the beach or park.
    Through our community outreach program and barter and trade group I've found its a terrific network of like minded people who care about the environment and our community plus there's always fresh yummy fruit and veg.
    I have solar and do not require any money for board. In return for your help I'll do my best to look after you and provide some excursions through the aussie scrub where you'll find wallaby trails, waterfalls if running, flora and fauna plus our pristine beach.
    Time to time I have friends, other rescue volunteers, musicians and artists who stop by for an afternoon or overnight stay. First Nation elder friends and their kin also stop in.

    It's a lot of vacuuming, sweeping, mopping. Cleaning cupboards, wiping over walls, doors.

    There's an old fashioned drive in with a theatre attached 10 mins away which is a novel experience! Chairs are eclectic, you're given fresh blankets and they do a mean waffle!
    Obviously the GBR and beautiful beaches are a must see! I believe there's a good dive site off Alva beach.
    Plus check out the nfp Landcare org which does wonderful work rehabilitating wetlands and coastal areas. They have a super nursery open to the public.
    If you want to learn how to play guitar, cook, sing, paint or mixed medium art that can be arranged.

    I ask that Workawayers intending to stay provide a solid verbal agreement that they will, in fact, turn up. Cancellations at last minute are frustrating and not cool.

    This is not a one night stay type of arrangement to break your trip between Cairns and Airlie Beach -to use my facilities, me feed you and then you decide to leave the next morning. I will be leaving a sharp review if this turns out to be the case.

    We're committed to lowering our carbon footprint in this household. Recycling, short showers, harnessing solar energy by cooking most meals when the sun is in full force. Lights and all electrical devices switched off when not in use. Thanks.
