    We are renovating a beach shack at Broadbeach Waters on the Gold Coast
    Need help with the fun job of ripping it apart and putting hot back together
    You don't need to have renovating skills but if you did or have a trade would be a great help.
    Some of the jobs include
    - Demolition smashing things up
    - Landscaping and Gardening
    - Painting
    - Tiling, Carpentry or any other skills a great help

    Can learn on the job we have been doing a few Renos so lots of skills to share
    Just need to be pretty fit and keen to learn. Preference for a couple if can and sorry but non smoking.
    Looking for help in return for beautiful accommodation and can pay for any extra hours at least at minimum wage and there will be some so good for people keen to work and enjoy this beautiful area.

    What else ...

    The Gold Coast and Broadbeach are beautiful beach side areas and lots to see and do. Can paddle, fish or swim out front of the house or head out and discover the amazing beaches, shops and restaurants. Also lots of parks and National Parks nearby to explore.
    We have done lots of other workaway project before in Oz and Japan and has been a great experience for us and the work aways. You can check some of our reviews on those listings in Nozawa and Yamba if like.
    We live a healthy outdoors lifestyle and enjoy getting into projects like this one renovating the beach house. Looking for like minded motivated people to join us.
