The Experience

The main tasks would consist of cleaning (rooms, kitchen, bathrooms, toilets etc.) and housekeeping. Sometimes we need help in our cute but very busy cafe/gift shop in Glenorchy with a B&B in the garden. Help includes serving food & drinks, taking orders and cleaning the B&B. Other work may include general maintenance/odd jobs, such as chopping wood, cutting branches, mowing lawns, weeding etc. We try to use your skills as best we can.

Kinloch lodge rests at the top of the lake and is quite isolated but if that’s what you’re looking for you’ll find no better place to be amongst the mountains and nature. There are sandflies so be prepared, however the staff are very welcoming and happy to help with any needs you may have.
