    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Being the oldest continuous rainforest in the world gives you the chance to be where the reef meets the forest. Rich with Indigenous knowledge & significant sites. We can learn together how to work this land & exhange language too - I only speak English 😊

  • Help


    Plenty do here as we are at complete start up phase. Specifically mowing, whippersnipping (I am literally hopeless at this & cannot get my technique to flow!!), creating vegetable gardens, clearing overgrown gardens & creation of camp sites. Anyone that has either electrical or mechanical qualifications would be great too as the house could use some electrical work & some machinery needs some attention. It is a 26acre property & there is always plenty of mowing to be done. Also taking cuttings for the greenhouse & seed raising would be needed. All skill sets would be considered including a bit of housekeeping or assisting me to move furniture.

  • Accommodation


    Plenty of space for tents, or self drive camper vans, have a large bus that sleeps 5 (needs a clean out), rooms can also be available. Happy to provide simple breakfast, fruit, breads etc - dinner to be negotiated by the most willing cook 😊 Plenty of spots for a nice fire & no shortage of wood to enjoy while watching the Northern stars. Additionally your belongings will be safe here while you go & explore.
    I am happy to provide food (3 x meals) in exchange for 25 hours.
    Fridges are available for you to store your own foods if you prefer to work less & explore more.
