  • Description


    I am a single dad with an awesome 10 year old son. I am a self employed fishing guide and run my own busy charter fishing business. Both my son (Reef) and I are both happy go lucky easy going people and we both enjoy having company in our home and sharing what our beautiful region has to offer. Stress free, happy and relaxed is how we like to be in our lives. Due to being pretty busy all the time I don't have time to tend to my backyard and give it the attention it deserves, that's why I am looking for some help. Sorry but I would prefer not to have couples and preference will be given to those with references

    Hydeaway Bay is a little piece of paradise located at the northern end of the Whitsundays. We have heaps of untouched beaches to explore, coral reefs on the mainland to snorkel and walking tracks to wander along. With a small population and no pollution, this is one of the last untouched pieces of paradise on the Qld coast.
    I can offer trips out on charter to catch your dinner and experience the wonders of the Whitsundays firsthand. I am happy to drop you off on your own tropical island for a day or two with all camping and fishing gear, camping permits supplied. Whilst in my home I'll make sure that you have plenty of good tucker to eat and a cold beer at the end of the day. I have lived in the Whitsundays for the last thirty years and spent all that time working on the ocean. I have gained a vast amount of knowledge about all things above and underneath the water in this time which I am only to happy to share with anyone who wants to learn.

    I am a single dad and run a busy charter fishing business which leaves me little time for caring for my beautiful backyard n Hydeaway Bay. I would love some help to clean up and replant gardens so that I can get my property back to its former glory.

  • Accommodation


    I have two spare air conditioned rooms for use in a nice sea view home nestled at the back of Hydeaway Bay. Free internet. I'll make sure that who ever stays here will have plenty of good quality food to eat. As I am a fisherman, there's normally something fresh from the ocean to enjoy.
