  • Description


    Our family owned property north of Byron Bay needs some helping hands. We have beautiful lake systems that need maintenance, citrus orchards and vegetable gardens that need tending and there is much pruning, weeding and watering to be done on this 15 acres. We have a couple of building projects in development. Couples are ideal.
    The property is stunning and a lot of our food is grown here. We have a programme of events that are enjoyable and a couple of residents who are wonderful company. Accommodation is in a well equipped caravan, under cover, with an amazing view of water and birdlife. We are surrounded by birdlife, rare and exotic plants and beautiful weather.

    We welcome couples who enjoy serious gardening as we have many beautiful garden eco-climates from native to subtropical. We would appreciate someone who enjoys building and has skills in that area. If you have a busy mind and creative hands, I think you will enjoy being here.
    Tasks include:
    Weeding and pruning the gardens. Weeding and maintaining the waterways and lakes. Tending the chickens, vegetable gardens and orchards (ie harvesting and hygiene). Mulching and composting, some waste management (weeds etc).
