  • Description


    Firstly this is a Queensland listing, as there is another Ross Creek in Victoria. We have just had our house re-roofed and are keen to build: to America some art like a herd of sheep out of roofing iron, garden edging. Have lots of iron. We are decorating a small cabin, moving a caravan about 200 metres, would love some muscle. We recently joined the Cooloola Farm Trail which encompasses 8 farms, ours included. It is over a weekend IN SIX WEEKS TIME and we get to showcase our beautiful farm, but we need add to our lakeside trail. We need gardening, signage, ideas etc. Can you help??? This is a 35 acre farm situated midway between Noosa and Fraser Island. We are keen to get involved in the Small or Tiny House Movement and have plans on a small renovation. Should be fun!!! Our farm has a persimmon orchard, a fruit tree propagating nursery, a mixed exotic fruit orchard and a Bed and Breakfast. We have a huge lake with platypus, fish and for canoeing and swimming in the warmer weather, 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 folk, 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 welcome
