  • Description


    Firstly this is a Queensland listing, as there is another Ross Creek in Victoria. We are decorating a small cabin so an ability to build or learn to build would be great. We would love help gardening, signage, and most importantly we are just about to harvest our persimmon crop. Can you help??? We have a 35 acre farm that has a persimmon orchard, a fruit tree propagation nursery, a mixed exotic fruit orchard and a Bed and Breakfast. We have a huge lake with platypus, fish and for canoeing and swimming and we sit in among the hills. An abundance of birds and wildlife surround us.
    We looking for workawayers to help us bring the gardens up to scratch and who would like to get involved in a small renovation. There is always plenty of things to do here, whether we are having a creative moment, working in the orchard, or doing things around the house or the cabin.
    We have been hosts since 2001 and have had some wonderful experiences with international travellers many of whom we have stayed in contact with and visited overseas.
    We are keen travellers, readers, movie watchers.
    We are looking for a single person or a couple.
    Your accommodation will be a large caravan and bathroom, or or our newly decorated cabin We will eat together, and if you want to create in the kitchen you are very welcome. We look forward to welcoming you to our patch of paradise. Thank you
    Internet readily available
