  • Descripción


    Hi I am looking for people who want to stay in beautiful Maleny, a lovely town one hour by car to the north of Brisbane. My house is walking distance to the township of Maleny and public transport as well as half an hours drive to the most beautiful beaches in Australia. Brisbane is accessible by train and there are several swimming holes nearby. The back of the house is a jungle with huge trees and a lot of privacy where one can hang a hummock I have a pushbike that can be used. ( Needs air or may be fixing first) Usually the tasks are general painting, cleaning, gardening and sometimes little building projects.
    In my past I used to be a permaculture instructor Brisbane, then lived at Crystal Waters eco village for 25 years where I designed and built my eco friendly house. I now live in Maleny where I am doing up a house almost finished now just need a few final touches.


    The exchange is 4 - 5 hours of your time in exchange for accommodation and food.

    I am an introvert and although I like a good conversations I need time alone to charge my batteries. So if you need lots of company and engaging in hours of talking.....this is probably not the right place for you.
    However I am friendly and kind enough and will help you with any questions, language and local information.

    Looking forward to hear from You
