  • Description

    Description

    We are set into the bush against the National Park on Magnetic Island, close to beaches for swimming, diving, fishing and snorkelling. There are lots of great walks nearby. Our garden is host to native animals such as koalas, echidnas and wallabies. Our home is an open design timber pole frame. The accommodation is in the spare room with a comfy queen size bed. We have an established bush garden, veggie garden and chickens. We are currently needing some help to spring clean our home and gardening. We have extensive local knowledge and love to share our special home with visitors. The work is offset by good food, peaceful and interesting surrounds and plenty of time to explore the Island. At the moment we need a couple as the jobs to do are best with two. Non smokers and 24+ years old only please.

    Currently need help with household cleaning, gardening and cooking. You will need to be fit and strong and able to handle working in hot, humid conditions (standard weather here October to March).
