We are looking for volunteers [couples only] to do a few hours a day for board and keep. We have one double bed available in one bedroom.

The kettle is on and your bed is made!... Time to enjoy the country life!
Off the grid living in a 1930s house on six acres at Allora Queensland in stages of renovation. It is on the Dalrymple Creek just one kilometre from Allora in the Darling Downs, great views, lovely community.
We are totally off the grid and wish to be self sufficient. We have full 240V solar / battery house, a wormsmart waste system, 100,000L of water storage, three airconditioned bedrooms, 2 new bathrooms and kitchen plus fast NBN internet wifi.
We have water security with a water bore!
We would like to put window trims in (carpenter) and paint the interior walls and sand the floors and we are landscaping... We would like to expand our tree planting and biocorridors and get the vegetable patch expanding too...
We have a number of fruit trees and wish to expand this. The vegie patch is a bit sad, we have geese, ducks and chooks.
We live in a smoke free environment...
We have now sponsored ten world travellers and it has always been a good experience both ways.

We are Sandra and Steve. We are on six acres on the Dalrymple Creek on a sealed road just one kilometre out of town. We have two house poodles.
We have relocated an 1930s Queenslander four bedroom house there [rescued from the city of Brisbane] and have lots to do and lots to enjoy. The house is very livable, with a big bathroom and kitchen. We are trying to be low impact self sufficient.
It is an off the grid rural property of 6 acres. We do have full electrical power from our solar and batteries, full flushing toilets that feeds our worms based treatment plant and full wifi from our fixed wireless NBN service. We have two poodles and like music gardening and motorcycling.
