We have a beautiful 50 acre farm at Amamoor 40 minutes from Noosa on the sunshine coast of Queensland . I am John and my wife is Julia we have two lovely children, Nicholas and Catherine.
We also have 1000 avocado trees which we do not spray with bad chemicals unlike other avocado farms. We also grow lots of lovely fresh spray free vegetables. We have a swimming pool and a great view over the Mary Valley.
We have travelled a great deal so are interested in backpackers from other countries.We have had a number of volunteers in the past and have enjoyed having them and the children learning about their country.
We sell all our avocados through Farmers Markets so part of the work would be going to markets to sell fruit etc. We have seperate accommodation for backpackers which comes with an incredible view!
As a family we enjoy life, cooking great food and we always have some friends or visitors coming round. I hope it sounds like a great place to be while travelling in Australia.
