  • Description


    Hi fellow Workawayers,
    I live in one of the beautiful beaches north of the tropical paradise that we call Cairns. I need help around my yard with general gardening, yard work, maintenance and basic building. I have doggies that enjoy a regular daily walk too. I have a few projects that I'd like some help with - making a wood fired oven, cleaning up a shed space to make a beautiful, peaceful retreat area and some general paving. I have a surburban property 400m away from the beach which would make a good base from which to explore the rest of the Cairns region. I welcome the exchange that Workaway offers and look forward to meeting folk from around the world. I'm also quite the adventurous sort so am happy to have workawayers tag along on my adventures.

    I have a very good knowledge of the local area and the east coast of Australia. I will be happy to take folk to special spots in the region and redirect their travels to amazing places that I have travelled to myself in Australia.

    I am very interested in supporting the local food industry and growing my own food. Work would be quite manual as I have a fair bit of active maintenance and basic building to do including the gardening. Anyone with basic building and carpentry experience would be most welcome. I love creativity - it comes in many forms and am very happy for international folk to contribute their artistic talents to help beautify my property.

    There is a bus stop just around the corner from my house that can take you to a shopping centre or into town. The house is 400m away from a beautiful tropical beach. I have a bike that can be used for cycling to local parks and shopping centres. I live in a quiet but beautiful suburb.
    My house is not a party house. Come and stay with me if you are interested in good conversation and healthy food.
    No drugs, smoking or alcohol thanks!
    Just you and your travel stories.
