  • Description


    We are in need of some help with cleaning and gardening at our private home and gardens on our 15 acre property located in one of the most pristine beach towns in Queensland, between Bundaberg and Gladstone! .......'Agnes Water & Town of 1770.'
    HISTORY ? Captain Cook landed his sailing ship here, back in the year 1770 (hence the name 'Town of 1770' ) A tiny town with a lot of hidden secrets .....but don't expect crowds, lots of shops and night life! DO expect lots of beautiful nature, lots of wild kangaroo sightings, national parks, deserted beaches and some of the friendliest people you will ever meet! We are the last surfing beach heading north ......first surfing beach heading south ! Named as One of the Top 5 Beaches in Australia; Gateway to the most pristine southern end of the Great Barrier Reef and are close to shopping centers, doctors, ambulance and all the basic amenities. We provide good clean accommodation in cute and cozy little cabins, light breakfast, free Wifi and free shuttles into town, in exchange for 15 hours work per week. We have planted hundreds of plants and trees on the property, which are always in need of attention. We have an ultra cool communal area, swimming pool and our own small private lake. If you are looking for a workaway in one of the most pristine parts of the East Coast of Queensland, this is the place to be!

  • Help


    The help is for a maximum of 15 hours per week, in exchange for good clean accommodation plus a light breakfast and free wifi. This help involves maintaining the grounds and gardens, tree planting, trimming and hedging, cleaning around around the house and maybe a little bit of your home country cooking (if you can cook) This still leaves plenty of time to enjoy all our beautiful area has to offer. We don't want you missing out on any of the activities!!
