  • Description


    Hello! my name is Christiane :)

    We have a lovely house in the rainforest, we are non smokers, love animals and are LGBTQI+ friendly!

    Some information about our property:
    Our property is part rainforest part open eucalyptus bushland, adjoining State forest.
    We are 10 km away from Kuranda. You need to have your own transport.
    Our house is large and unusual, run by solar panels.

    My husband and I live here along with one large and three small dogs.
    So must not be allergic to dogs!!
    We prefer two people , no matter what configuration.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Kuranda is a lovely town right in the Rainforest, close to the Tablelands and Cairns
    Great place for lovers of nature and bird watching! NOT ideal if you are looking for nightlife.
    Many great nature walks around our property :)

  • Help


    We sometimes require a couple of people to look after our dogs and house whilst we are away. Otherwise there is usually something for you to do, you need your own vehicle.

    Chores ranges from helping with building work (with guidance) gardening, cleaning, general household tasks, dog minding, painting and one of our other never ending projects like the chicken coop or the bathing pond.
    Hours depending on type of tasks but around 20hrs per week , we are flexible with arrangements I.e. work a full day and take the next day off etc..
