  • Description


    Hmmm, what makes my place attractive to you ...... I'm in tropical Queensland. The Whitsunday Islands are in my back yard.

    My home is only 4km from the center of Airlie Beach - walk-able if you want.

    The view from the top of my property is expansive over a valley with ocean views.

    I'm a retired Army Officer after 20 years service and tend to work skippering a yacht around the islands, when I'm not working I'm enjoying working my block with Conway national park on my boundary.

    I was also a survival instructor in the Army and I am happy to teach and pass on some of these skills.

    My place is not a luxurious place gang, it's kinda one step up from glamping :-)

    Maximum stay is 2 weeks

    This is a cut and paste from one family

    Survival with Ben on his hill.

    Rule n.1 : you can have as many bon fire as you want, but they only last on the wood you collect!
    Rule n.2 : don’t talk with Ben before his morning coffee.
    Rule n.3 : never wash dishes after Ben went to bed.
    Rule n.4: do you want an hot shower? Get your wood, make your fire!
    Rule n.5: Ben is the king... of his chair!
    Rule n.6: if you are able to make the fire, you will have your magic stick!
    Rule n.7: in the cabin only good vibes....
    Bring your own mirror ( this is an advice) hairdryer available!!!!

    Learning from Ben was a great pleasure. His calm and challenging attitude of teaching us his bush tucker and “spirits-tuality” let us spend two wonderful weeks on Ben’s Hill.
    Thank you for the good time.

    Romina, Michael, Balian and Noa
