  • Description

    Description

    We are located on beautiful Tamborine Mountain, which is a prime Queensland tourist destination.The Mountain boasts magnificent remnants of rainforests, with many walks and attractions within easy walking distance of our property. While reasonably large , our property is located in the middle of the village and within walking distance of shops supermarket cafes post office library etc,so workers without a car never feel isolated.

    Our farm consists of avocado trees, some of which we are now replacing with citrus trees such as oranges, lemons, limes etc. We also have a range of vegetable gardens all of which are treated organically. We have chickens as well.There is a stall at the front of the property that gets filled with our produce in season and a tourist facility that opens on weekends and provides food and produce to visitors to the mountain.
    The accommodation we are offering is a very spacious, bran new, fully furnished self contained flat with air conditioning, a fully equipped kitchen with fridge and freezer, showers,toilet and clothes washing facilities.It also has a large outdoor veranda with table and chairs. Sheets and towels are provided.The studio comes with a large TV and DVD player. Wifi is available on the property. Mobile reception is good.We can lend plenty of books as well. We live in a separate building 100 meters from the studio.

    We are looking for people who like farm work, weeding, digging, planting etc and who are happy, extremely honest,trustworthy, meticulous,with a healthy lifestyle and can follow instructions carefully. We do not accept smokers. We are also looking for people with building skills, such as tiling and carpentry.

    Please note that the studio comes with a resident old, easy going, cat and it is essential the volunteers selected love cats, not just tolerate them.

    Food for cooking is provided for breakfast,lunch and dinners, including organic vegetables from the garden. We are happy to provide a reference at the completion of the stay to indicate experience and achievements. Languages spoken are English, German, French, and a little Italian
