  • Description

    Description

    Welcome to our tropical highland farm; it's 116 acres of lush pasture and rainforest, perched 785m (2575ft) above the Coral Sea and just inland from the towering Hawaii-like mountains of Bellenden Ker (1593m) and Bartle Frere (1622m.) We are located 84km south-west of Cairns, Far North Queensland, and 17°26' south of the Equator.

    Just take a look at our photos and you'll see why we've fallen in love with this place. The views are stunning and there's a soothing sense of tranquility.

    We have a couple of spring fed creeks on the the property which you are free to enjoy at your leisure or there are always the Crater lakes (Eacham and Barrine) to enjoy on your time off (you must have your own transport to get to these places).

    Tasks will probably involve tending to our beef cattle, pigs, sheep and chickens
    We have 2 cats and a dog so you need to be pet friendly!

    Opportunities for viewing wildlife here are excellent. There are native bandicoots and tree kangaroos (rarely sighted); and bird life including King Parrots, Major Mitchell and Sulphur-Crested cockatoos, Victoria's Riflebirds, Whip Birds, Scrub Turkeys and 'Megapod' scrub fowl, numerous species of raptors, Kookaburras, Owls, and many more.

    There's a real sense of tranquility to be had here ... an oasis of peace "Far from the madding crowd."

    We provide 3 meals a day.
    There is a daily bus from Cairns to Atherton where we can pick you up.

    We are happy to pick you up from Cairns airport if we are in Cairn on that day. We take 1 to 2 trips a week into Malanda, and we go to Atherton once a week. Trips to Cairns are around 1 or 2 times per month depending on needs.
