We are a family managing a small beautiful farm in tropical North Queensland. Our property has large sections of rain forest, with a creek, waterfall, and swimming hole (great for hot days). We have Platypus and Cassowary on our property too. We farm cattle, sheep, ducks, and chickens.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We are a friendly family who are establishing a self-sufficient farm. We are learning new sustainable farming techniques and are happy to share these techniques. We are also happy to listen to your experience of other farms.
We are part of a community of people with different expert knowledge, including Medicine, Engineering, Botany, Timber Production, Public Health, Epidemiology, and Animal Husbandry.
We require help with weed management. This mostly includes preparing land for tree planting and managing weeds (brambles, lantana and navua sedge).
Other duties include general maintenance including painting, mowing, and vegetable gardening.
Animal husbandry includes helping feeding cattle, sheep, chickens, and ducks.
Very comfortable living inside the family home with own bedroom with double bed. the food will be shared with the family.
It is an extremely beautiful area with lots of national parks and scenic places to visit. Cairns is 2 hrs away.
