    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The property is situated on the Walsh River which has many great places to swim and explore, as well a wide variety of birds and animals. This help involves many different aspects of building and carpentry, as well as basic plumbing, plastering and roof/gutter fixing, and the focus on sustainable building methods requires some creative/artistic talents.

    Help

    The project involves using recycled and locally sourced building materials and an ability to learn on the job. There are also some gdening/landscaping projects to be completed and someone with a creative mindset would enjoy helping on this task.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Having your own transport is a benefit but not essential. There are lots of places to swim and explore within walking distance and the bus comes up from Cairns everyday to the nearby towns of Atherton, Herberton and Ravenshoe.
