We live in a rainforest mountain paradise about 30km out of Brisbane. No other houses are visible from our home, there are only trees, wallabys, frogs, many beautiful birds and a very pretty dam. In fact it is a bird watchers paradise, with the sound of bellbirds ringing.
There are also many beautiful bush walks to go on around the area. It is a very special place and often much cooler than the city. We have a swimming pool which you are welcome to use.
There is no public transport, but Paula works in Brisbane City three days per week and can drive you to the train station. John works from home. We are both easy going people and have travelled to many countries ourselves. We also both love music and play whenever we can.

We have a small orchard and a vegetable garden and some chickens, but mostly lots of forest. There will be lots of weeding and mulching, both in the orchard and vege garden, but also in the forest as we are trying to clear away all the introduced species. The work will be two hours per day for accommodation only (not food, although we will occasionally share meals). You can do the work on any days you like, for example, four hours one day and no hours the next day.
We have a caravan in the forest, fitted out with a deck and a roof. You will have your own private bathroom, laundry and cooking facilities. We will share meals occasionally but mostly you will cook for yourself. It is well suited for a couple, or two single people who are mature, self-motivated and who like to have a bit of independence and privacy. It is the Australian bush, not the city, so if you are afraid of bugs and wildlife, this might not be the right place for you.
We live in a beautiful forest only 30km from a major city. We are located within Brisbane Forest Park and close to several beautiful bush walks and only one hour's drive from the golden beaches of the Sunshine Coast.
Minimum stay is 10 days and we prefer mature, independent people with a genuine interest in the natural environment.
