    Hi there,

    I am making this profile for my mum, we are looking for people for the first two weeks of March 2022, and also potentially in winter as well but we will update this profile later for that role.

    The Property:

    20kms east from Margaret River townsite, so you need to have your own transport.
    Rural property with small remnant bushland but I wouldn't recommend walking through it because there is a healthy population of tiger snakes. However we are a 5 minute drive from Rapids conservation park where you can walk amongst the bush to your hearts content and go swimming at Canebrake Campground (although it has burnt down December 2021).

    The property is located near jarrah forests. Jarrah is a eucalyptus tree that is endemic to the southwest, which means it is not found anywhere else in the world. We can suggest lots of walking trails such as the Bibbulmen track and the Cape to Cape track which are all extremely rewarding hikes.


    Margaret River town is a 15 minute drive away
    Gnarabup beach is about a 25/30 minute drive away


    The Work:

    The work will be outdoors completely, there will be no indoor work. It will be the end of summer so hopefully a bit more windy and less hot.

    We have two specific tasks we need completed over a two week stay. The first is that there is an old chicken area that needs the grass to be cut and and the fruit trees pruned underneath so the chickens can move around. The old chicken hut needs to be cleaned, fixed, renovated and adding woodchips.

    The second job is that behind a water-tank is various miscellaneous materials (old building materials, rubber tyres, metal scrap). This needs to be thrown into a trailer and driven to the waste-transfer station.

    This work is going to be physical and the sun can be hot so we are open to you splitting up the workday into morning and afternoon shifts. Whatever you need to do to get the task done.

    If you are amazing and complete the two tasks within the two weeks we have small jobs like painting a verandah and helping to renovate a caravan.

    The amount of work each day is 4 hours, 4 days a week, in exchange for accomodation and groceries.

    Selection Criteria:

    Proficient at range of power tools
    Physically fit
    Vaccinated (double dose)
    Drivers License


    Please send me an application and we can talk about your skills and our needs

    Looking forward to hearing from you

    You will benefit from this stay if you enjoy nature and environmentalism. The south-west region has an international classification of a "global biodiversity hotspot". This means that we have a high concentration of endemic species, and also significantly threatened. If you want to learn more about the specifics of the unique biodiversity we can point you in the direction of some really informative resources.

    We are close to Margaret River, it is the town where we go to if we need anything. It is a progressive town, rich in new-age cultural events. Yoga, sound healing, permaculture, meditation, music events, surfing events, lots of wine. Margaret River has a reputation as being a progressive cultural town of the southwest.

    Hébergement

    Self contained unit with your own kitchen, bathroom and laundry. The gas stove is outside but the rest of the kitchen amenities are indoors.

    No Wifi in the room sorry, we have wifi on the property you are welcome to use, but it doesnt reach the unit so you will have to hang out on the verandah to use the internet.

    Telstra is the only network coverage out here and is not reliable because we live too far away from a network tower.
