  • 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 private room with a comfy queen size bed and an en-suite bathroom and kitchenette. We have an established bush garden, veggie garden and chickens. We are currently needing some help with cleaning, cooking 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. Non smokers and 24+ years old only please. Couple or single.
