We are a mature couple living on 250 acres of Australian bush. We have too many horses, cattle, poultry and dogs who need daily attention, not to mention a garden that desperately needs a tidy up. There are always maintenance chores and fences to be fixed - never a dull moment. The most beautiful quiet location with loads of native bird life including a dam which is home to various birds including a pelican who came and filled his belly with fish and then left! We also have a couple of kayaks on the dam to have a play in and a swim when its really hot. We love having company, a yarn, a laugh and a few drinks and good food at the end of a busy day. Sitting out on the deck or around a bonfire. No kids at home any more.

You will get to experience life on an Australian farm. See some Australian native animals and enjoy the beautiful scenery a rural environment has to offer. If you love animals and you don't mind mucking in then you will love it here.
General house cleaning - floors, windows, doors, ceiling fans, kitchen cupboards etc etc. Various outdoor maintenance tasks as required e.g. fencing, re-oiling window sills, pruning, planting and general garden maintenance and a hand with the animals. You will need to be reasonably fit and prepared to get dirty. You need to be able to work unsupervised at times. If you are an experienced horse rider that could be handy also. As it can be hot in the middle of the day the ideal time for work is early morning before it gets too hot through until lunch time (5 hours). After lunch you can relax and explore.
There is currently one bedroom with a queen size bed which is separate and private from the main house. This area has its own bathroom and toilet.
horse riding, kayaking, swimming, hikes, waterfalls, hot air ballooning and much more near by. Closest main town is Mareeba but if you're looking for some night life then Cairns is an hour's drive away. You will preferably have your own transport as there is limited public transportation in the area. Sorry not suitable for young children.
