We eat meat but vegetarians and vegans welcome. We provide eggs, honey, bread and organic produce from the garden and we do some communal meals too. People with skills of carpentry and building highly sort after but not necessary. We are doing a bus conversion at the moment, have just finished a tiny house on wheels and are at building another! Theres also an opportunity to earn extra cash cleaning the accommodation at $25 an hour with everything supplied. And if your good with kids I’ll pay an extra $150 a week for some extra hours with the kids while I work from home.

    We will favour people wanting to stay a month or more as most people that stay here come for a few weeks and stay a few months! Look forward to meeting you! You must have your own car and be able to drive a manual.

    Hi! We have a 20 acre farm at the base of the beautiful Glass House Mountains, Sunshine Coast, Queensland Australia. We run a bed and breakfast and farm stay, where people can come and stay with us and enjoy the farm life. We have a variety of farm animals including miniature pigs, alpaccas, dexter cows, chickens, miniature goats, sheep, quails, ducks and dogs. We are aiming to be self sufficient as possible and have a huge organic vegetable garden, we have our own beef, pork and egg supply, honey and are starting to plant fruit trees and expand our food production. It is the perfect base to explore the sunshine coast, only 20 min to the beach, one hour from Brisbane and just down the rd from Australia Zoo.

    We are a couple in our early 40’s with a 5 year old and 2 year old boys, many animals, gardens and a farm stay business. So come and stay with us at the farm and explore the beautiful sunshine coast. Oh and if you love food and cooking this is the place to be.

    Emma and Mark


    We have babies everywhere at the moment...mini pigs, puppies and calves

    Hi everyone. We are building a organic garden from scratch and would love help with getting this up and running,(UPDATE: this is in full production and we eat every day from the garden, we still maintain it regulary and can teach yu too) help putting up a greenhouse, help feeding all of our animals, help in the house including cleaning and light duties around the house. We do all live in the main house (and now have a funky caravan which is just for the workaway crew) so its a 'everyone helps' communal lifestyle, and you will be required to all pitch in and help. Plenty of free time an welcome to join us when we go to the markets and beaches ect.. we do have a spare car to use if you have an international drivers license.
