  • Description


    We are Allan( retired) and Shiloh (terrier), we live in the magnificent Daintree rain forest in Cow Bay far north Queensland. Our house is air conditioned when required, we live off grid, in house there is one bedroom available, would suit a couple or single. Full facilities available, limited phone coverage and internet. Accommodation and two meals a day in exchange for around 4-5 hours help for 5 days of your week, tasks mostly include helping me in the garden and house. Come and watch sunrise at Cow Bay beach, walking distance to the pub if that's your flavor. You would need to be a non smoker or drug looser. In the wet season cooling off is as close as the front door in stunning Fairy creek. Trans North run a bus service from Cairns Mon. Wed and Friday.
