My name is Gina. I was born and raised in Yungaburra. I am a great ambassador for Yungaburra and I think this town is one of the nicest places in Australia. I am energetic, active and very social. I manage an upmarket accommodation place on the Atherton tablelands, one hour drive from Cairns. The accommodation is surrounded by lush tropical gardens to maintain.

You will learn a lot about the native Australian plants and how to take care of them in our hot tropical conditions. You get an inside view of how a small accommodation business operates and you get the opportunity to meet guests which are from all over the world.
Being a local I have a great knowledge about the history of this area the natural attractions and about the tropical flora and fauna as well. The Atherton Tablelands is a birdwatchers paradise as we are surrounded with ancient rain forests.
We need one willing, strong, hardworking volunteer to help us with gardening, painting, cleaning and general maintenance at our property.

You will live in the beautiful township of Yungaburra in a modern share house on the same property as the accommodation business with approximately 6-10 other young volunteers.
Having a vehicle is preferable but not necessary.
