  • Description


    Hello! my name is Christiane :)

    We have a lovely house on top of a hill surrounded by rainforest and open forest, we are non smokers, love animals and are LGBTQI+ friendly!

    Some information about our home:
    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 three small dogs.
    So you must not be allergic to dogs!!
    We prefer two people or up to 4 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. Lots of artists of all kind.
    Great place for lovers of nature and bird watching! NOT ideal if you are looking for nightlife.
    Many great nature walks around our property :) Winter ( June July August) can get a bit nippy especially at night but with the most beautiful sunny days full of birdsong.

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