  • Description


    1st April 2021
    We are able to offer a double room for a single backpacker, and in return help in the garden (five days a week).

    We really need help in the garden!
    Last backpacker was in june 2021. For the right person we can offer a min of 2 weeks and can arrange longer also. We also have other hosts if you need stability given the current covid issues. (We can offer a week also)

    Get in touch, we would like to hear what you are good at and why you would want to stay,
    We offer you a great stay, with trips out and bbqs on the beach, part of our gay family!

    Ask any questions and get in touch.

    We only take single backpackers.

    We are a gay couple who moved to Australia from the UK.
    We have spent the last six years in the garden, renovating and making major changes along with some house maintenance.
    We have one acre of land and it grows and grows!

    As a traveller you benefit from having a great experience with us. We treat you as family like you are here and try to take you out as much as possible. We do bbq's and try and get to take you out to see the great area of the Sunshine Coast.
    When we go out, we will always ask you along and to say G'Day to our friends.
    The only time you will need to spend your own money is if we go out and you would buy your own food and drink.

    We ask that you also cook at your exspence once a week a dish of your nationality so it is always a fun challenge!

    Please note we are rural.

  • Help


    We look for 4 hours a day (5 days per week) this will mostly be in the garden, some example of help will be weeding, burning, wheelbarrowing, laying gravel and some painting.
