The Experience

Helpers are interested in a hands-on experience in Nature and the wish to try new skills in a variety of tasks in the house, garage, pool area & gardens. Must be wanting to live a healthy & drug-free experience. The use of tools will be available for longer stay helpers. Good internet & computer skills will be a plus to help me with my book I'm writing. An interest in health & beauty, Sauna, meditation, exercise & music, will suit my wife.

This was my first worldpackers experience and it went great! We did a lot of little tasks on the land so I was never bored. Communication was great and my room was nice and cozy. The wifi worked great so I was able to do some online work on the front patio as well. He is willing to take you to the bus which is a great way to make it to the beaches and reef. He is very flexible with whatever plans you have or want to make and was fun to chat with.

I stayed with Mike and Tanya for a week and helped out with very basic gardening and handyman tasks. First off, they were both so welcoming and warm. Since their house a little away from the “fun” section of whitsundays he very kindly dropped me and picked me up from the bus stop everyday :)
He was very understanding and flexible with my schedule as well as my lack of knowledge on all things nature but it was such a wonderful experience for me to learn about an entirely different kind of life! Would 10/10 recommend! Thank you Mike and Tanya :)
