    Hello! We're Kirsten (32F) and Stu (34M), and we live on a beautiful acreage on the side of a mountain. We are both music teachers, and teach from home and also in schools across the region.

    Our property is situated in Strathdickie, between Cannonvale and Proserpine. It's about 15 minutes from the Proserpine Airport, and 20 minutes into Airlie Beach. We have three chickens, two cats and one dog, and are also lucky enough to have frequent visits from the native wildlife in the area. Our property is private and secluded, and has amazing views of the mountains and sugar cane fields.

    We're in the process of setting up our land for self-sufficiency, and we need a bit of help! In exchange for accommodation, internet, electricity and bathroom facilities, we need a hand with:

    - Animal care
    - Weeding, mulching, watering and fertilising
    - Building raised beds
    - House maintenance
    - Cooking

    3 hours a day would be great, but we are flexible. We'd prefer that you sort your own food out, but again, we can be flexible with this.

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    We're both musicians, so we're always keen for a jam :)
    If you're an artist or a writer, there's a lot of inspiration to be found here in nature.
    Other than that, this place is really something special. It is a lovely place to live, and a great place to experience Australian culture.

    Algo más...

    Staying here, you'll be a twenty minute drive from Airlie Beach. This is your gateway to the Whitsunday Islands - snorkelling, sailing, jet-skiing, hiking etc. We'd be happy recommend our favourite spots!

    In regards to our property - please keep in mind that we are on tank water, and solar power.
    There is public transport at the end of our street, but it would take about an hour to walk there, so it's probably best that you have your own car.
