  • Description


    I am Joan . I have an eco-home that is 100% sufficient in power and water. I have a large permaculture home garden which provides much of my needs in organic vegetables. I offer a rejuvenating home stay experience, with complementary Bowen Therapy, in exchange for light duties in the home and garden. I work 3 days a week in the local community as a Natural Therapist. The mobile phone is available only Mon- Wed, from 9.00 am to 6.00 pm as there is no mobile reception at home. My place is in a secluded inland setting (90 minutes from Gladstone) surrounded by, and immersed in the bird and animal life. The night sky is truly magnificent! It is close to the beautiful Cania Gorge National Park and the recreational fishing of Lake Cania - No 1 in Australia for Bass fishing.
    1st Oct 15. I am looking for help right now as I have a prospective buyer coming on 18th Oct to inspect my property. I need help in the garden and in some small cleaning jobs in the house. I would welcome either singles or couples and if you need transport from Gin Gin or Biloela please contact me with your plans.
