    Hi Workawayer's, I'm Karen,

    CRAP! Due to the bush fires my beautiful bush has been burned out completely . 🤨
    There is a massive black and brown mess. Logs to be cut up and moved and wholes to be filled.
    Habitat to be restored.
    I normally don’t take helpers through summer so if you come you will have to be able to work in the heat.
    But please understand most places that need help with animals is mainly cleaning up after the little darlings. Mopping floors, washing bedding, feeding, picking up poo in yards. Then there habitat needs a lot of work after the fires. Filling in holes and moving burned logs.
    The reality is not so cute and cuddly.
    There will be time after work to talk to the animals and have a pat.
    ____________________________________________________________________________________________________
    UNDER THIS LINE IS THE ORIGINAL PROFILE WHICH WILL RESUME ONCE THE LAND HAS RECOVERED AFTER THE FIRES.

    Help needed now enhansing wildlife habitat.
    Strong, fit person preferred, 25+
    if you like to keep fit whilst taking on a challenge this is the place for you.
    Good English is nessasary.
    Work hard in the morning and enjoy the wildlife and property in the afternoon.

    The usual tasks are:

    Picking up sticks and taking them to a fire pile
    Cutting down some small weedy trees and getting them to the fire pile
    Raking up leaves
    Moving rocks about in the creek to form a rock pool
    Picking up Wallaby Poo
    House work
    Planting grass
    And more

    When you come here it's NOT all about the animals, it's working in the bush, to maintain wildlife, habitat.

    I live on 11Acres of real (native) Australian Bush with winding tracks and Rainforest at the creek.
    It contains a few rare native plants and there lots of different ferns, palms, rainforest plants, vines and very tall gum trees.
    The creek has natural beauty even when it is dry.

    Wild Possums and Wallabies wander about in the evening.

    I renovated a site office and turned it into a home to temporarily live in.
    A shipping container provides work shop and storage. And a second container has been turned into clean, comfortable backpackers accomidation but there is no heating or cooling, so you have be tough and live within the elements.

    My workawayers are allowed one square foot of wall space to leave there international mark. The wall is growing and is fun to read.

    This property is totally self sufficient which means there are no phone cables, no power lines and no water pipes........a "stand alone" solar system and very noisy generator provides electricity, water from tanks and mobile phone and wireless Internet have great reception. BRILLIANT!
    But this does mean restrictions on power and water. So peeing outside is nessasary!
    The "very noisy generator " is unfortunately beside the helpers container/room which I try to minimise while you are here, but can't garantee it won't switch on through the nite.

    Experience with manual labor is preferred.
    The work is hard but rewarding.

    The animals you might find here are:

    Red Necked Wallaby's
    Swamp Wallaby's
    Paddymelons
    Koalas
    Thousands of wild birds
    Water Dragons
    Land Mullets
    Goannas
    Bandicoots
    Snakes
    Ticks
    Spiders
    Big Ants
    Leaches and heaps more but it depends on the season.

    PLEASE DON'T APPLY IF YOUR NOT INTO HARD WORK OR AFRAID OF CREEPY CRAWLIES!!
    I only take people for short stays 7-10 days.
    I can pick you up from Taree train station, or the state to state Premier Bus/Coaches stop at Nabiac. Greyhound Busses DON'T stop in Nabiac.
    If you have your own car it's only 20 minuets to the beautiful beaches of Forster and Tuncurry or you can come with me into town on a day off.

    I'm a licenced wildlife carer and conservationist and my property is classed as "land for wildlife"
    I also have a Certificate 3 in Conservation and land management, and Cert 2 in Horticulture


    PLEASE NOTE: I only provide 3 meals a day, so if you want anything to snack on between meals or alcohol they are at your own expense.
    On Days off we usually go into town and do shopping and sight seeing but you feed yourselves.

    Contact me for any questions,
    And please include your Australian phone number for quicker communication.

    Cheers,

    Karen.
