  • Description

    Description

    My name is Nick and I own a property in Yungaburra where I can need some help. I would prefer people with experience in hospitality or willingness to learn about it.

    ATTENTION: Due to the Covid situation I only accept people that are currently in Queensland.

    We are located in Yungaburra, a 50 minute drive from Cairns, North Queensland.
    We are always looking for new volunteers to help us keeping our organic garden sustainable, and are eager to learn about your experiences and knowledge.

    We prefer longer stays, but a minimum stay of 2 weeks is a must.

    As I possess my own Swiss/Italian Restaurant and Pizzeria, you will be in contact with many local workers. We all live in a multicultural and friendly environment. The food is excellent and plentiful, we can offer vegetarian food.

    There is always lots of gardening to be done. Weeding, planting, watering, mowing and all general garden duties.

    Our area is nearby to lakes, waterfalls and rain forests. Our Petersen Creek has platypus' and tree-climbing kangaroos.

    There is a Transnorth bus service daily, from Cairns to Atherton, where I can pick you up if you do not have a car.

    Most of the work is gardening and taking care of the fruit trees. It is always nice if you can bring some experience but it is not necessary. You will be working with my employees so you will be supervised. You are expected to work 4-5 hours a day 6 days a week. We have all the tools you will need.
    **Only if you worked over the hours required a week, then you will get paid by the reward wages to the job position**
