  • Description


    We have a hobby farm on 72 Acres Noosa Shire SE Queensland. It is an elegant home with swim pool, tennis court and walks in our subtropical forest. We now operate a small boutique guesthouse here. We need occasional help to deal with property maintenance. We would house you in our luxury caravan on the property and would supply basic foodstuffs maybe over 3-4 week period for 2-3 days of work a week. Our property sits in the UNESCO approved Noosa Biosphere and is a LAND FOR WILDLIFE acreage as declared by Noosa Council. So you wiil see Wallabies,Kangaroos,Goannas,Turtles etc and the birdlife is prolific !! As a couple we have travelled widely,caravaning all of Australia, motor homing U.S.A.home exchanging overseas and both river and ocean cruising in Europe and Asia . John ran his own International Management Consultancy as an Organisation Psychologist prior to retirement and Nora is a qualified Beauty Therapist and works in Aged Care . We love hosting and hope you will visit !!!
