    A small family run farm located in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland at Cambroon, 10mins drive from Kenilworth, 50mins from beaches of the Sunshine Coast and major towns like Noosa, Caloundra and Maroochydore. Australia Zoo is 45mins away and we are less than 2hours to Brisbane City.

    Our farm is very diversified, we have a dairy where we milk cows all year round. We also operate a true free range egg operation with laying chickens, have beef cows. and lots of dogs.

    Due to Covid-19 and social distancing our offer is a little different to normal. We could offer you a 3 bedroom house to live in with or without a food allowance in exchange for work, no meals with us. We need some help working on the farm house you would be living in to give it a little love eg. paint, mowing, carpentry work etc and some other farm jobs. We are currently not able to offer any payment for work.

    We would require ideally that you have your own vehicle, be located already in Queensland, and be willing to quarantine for 2 weeks if required. As you would be staying in the house by yourself ideally it would suit a couple or 2 or more friends travelling together.

    We are looking for help (5 hours/day for 5 days/week) with jobs around the farm or help around our home. Whatever your expertise or interest we can find somewhere for you to help. Some of the jobs could include milking the cows, feeding calves, collecting eggs, packing eggs, general farm work, gardening, building and painting or if you prefer help around the house and cooking. If you are a keen gardener your skills would be advantageous in the development of our vegetable garden. A great attitude and a willingness to undertake some physical work and care for animals is most important.

    Mobile phone is limited but we provide internet. Internet is satellite based so data limits are small and it can be slow, you are also welcome to use the WIFI at our home.

    We prefer stays of a minimum of 2 weeks, longer is preferable. Please make sure you have checked google maps to see exactly where we are. Thank you, see you soon!
