    Hello, We have fully self contained & accommodation for a couple or a single. If you are coming this way we could do with a hand to get on-top of some farm projects during the coming months as well as general house help. If you are up to pottering around with a couple in our 50's/60's we have a list a mile long of things to do ha ha. Min stay 2 weeks if you can manage it please? Long-term stayers are welcome. We are not worried if you are vaccinated or not. We always have interesting farm projects on the go as well as general property maintenance and daily chores. Our place is in a beautiful valley in the hinterland of the Gold Coast, just on the ocean side of Mt Tamborine. We've been here 31 years. It's Sub Tropical here and we have a spring gully with rock pools to cool off in and we're close to all things Gold Coast. We host 2 camp sites for paying guests on the weekends. There are 5 horses which are fed & cared for twice per day, 3 of them are wild caught Brumbies in various stages of training. We also have gardens & peacocks. We don't have dogs or cats therefore abundant wildlife, wallabies, parrots & pigeons gather here daily. We are wildlife carers & often have orphan native animals in our care or recently released on our farm. All meals supplied. You accom is a fully self contained 12m motorhome, seperate from the house, its huge & very cute. It has a Queen bed as well as a fold out double bed if needed, full kitchen, microwave, gas stove & oven, rangehood, shower, toilet, lounge area, dining table & AC. We've hosted workawayers, helpxers and wwoofers since 1991. We are about 35mins from Main Beach Surf Club. Safe travelling.

    You will learn many hands on skills. If you are ever planning on having a place of your own & becoming semi self sufficient, there is much you can soak up here.

    There is so much to do on a farm, we have lots of projects on the go at the moment, from building stone gateways to house renovations, gardening, property maintenance, animal care, housework, window cleaning, mowing, whatever we are doing at the time. Two days off each week. In saying that everything here is pretty laid back, you'll be helping a farming couple in their 50's potting around doing interesting projects & everyday farm stuff, you'll become part of our family while you are here. You prepare your own breakfast, but other than what we eat around a table together. We are the opposite of the slave-driving factory farms.

    We do eat meat & unfortunately we cannot cater for vegans.
    We will need to see your ID when you arrive and take a photo of it.
    We don't usually book you too far in advance because over the years we've had so many travellers change their plans and not turn up. Contact us if you are on the Gold Coast or in Brisbane or coming this way.
    Unfortunately we are not in the right postcode for 2nd holiday visa as we are a zoned as a hobby farm.

    What to bring:
    Your passport or ID
    Outdoor boots
    Long Pants
    Hat or cap
    Raincoat or poncho
    Insect repellent
    Toiletries
    Water bottle

    We don't supply these things.

    We have been musicians most of our lives. Non vaccinated travelers are welcome here. We prefer non cigarette smokers please. Wifi is available. Please let us know if you have any allergies or phobias before you arrive. Our property is rural so a vehicle is an advantage. Sorry we are not set up to accept families or pets. Experience with horses is an advantage but not necessary.
