  • Description


    Hi fellow Workawayers,
    I have recently had a break from the workaway website, however I had such a great time a few years ago, that I have decided to reactivate my profile again. 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.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Cairns is an amazing place and there is so much to do in the region. I love adventure myself so have many things I can recommend. We have the amazing Great Barrier Reef on our doorstep and the Daintree rainforest just north of us. There is also great hiking in the region - waterfalls and more waterfalls! So much to do. We have a bus just around the corner for transport into Cairns city centre if required.

    I am a vegetarian and don't have meat in the house however people are welcome to cook outside.

    My house is not a party house!
    NO drugs, alcohol or smoking please.

    It's a clean living lifestyle. Anyone who loves a simple, peaceful life and can indulge in good conversation is welcome.

    Please make sure that you have travel insurance. I really would like to be sure that people can be adequately cared for when they stay with me.
