  • Description


    We are currently seeking someone to house sit and feed our animals while we are on holiday. Dates are needed for 15th august 2018 to 1st September 2018. Need someone that is responsible and loves animals.

    We have been hosting workaways for some years now but have recently moved into an old property on acreage that is in needs of a lot of work. We are in an area called Koah which is about 15 minutes west of Kuranda and about 1 hours from Cairns CBD. We have no public transport at our door but it is available about 1 kilometre walk from our property. The other option is that we work in Kuranda and if you wish to sightsee you can travel in with us and catch a bus from there to Cairns or regional areas on the Tablelands.

    We also generally will go to Cairns or Mareeba for supplies at least once a fortnight. Because we are renovating there or no bedrooms completed as yet, but we do have an area we have made into a bedroom are happy to put you up in this. It will be really like living in the country… We have a lovely acreage with dogs, mini horses, chooks, geese, birds and various wildlife. Our property backs on to a river which you can go down and enjoy a swim at any time.

    Please DO NOT apply if you are a smoker. I have a Lung Disease and cannot be around this kind of environment.

    If you can help us please let us know.

    You need to be able to speak English

    Please do not email us unless you can help in any of the above.....(thank you)

    We are located in Koah which is about 1 hour from Cairns. Public transport is very limited if you have your own transport that would be an advantage but not necessary . If the Australian country is what you want to experience we can help you with this.

    Travellers will learn about the diversity of the bush living. They will most probably see Kangaroos in the natural area.

    We are looking for has someone that is very reliable, and loves animals. You will just have to relax and enjoy the area not a lot of work to be done. Just feeding animals and maybe some mowing. other than this it will be like a holiday. You could plan to go to the reef or sight see through the day and just feed animals nightly.

    We are located at the start of the Atherton Tablelands which have many beautiful attractions. If you are looking for a lot of night life or being close to shops then this property will NOT suit you.
