We run water sports, 4wd tours, and camping accommodation on South Stradbroke Island. The majority of work is taking care of the camp grounds (South and North Currigee). We will be working on repairs around the camp grounds, cleaning, gardening, and general maintenance.
This is a work for food and accommodation position and we're looking for 2 persons to help out with whatever needs doing for the day for usually about 3 hours (sometimes more sometimes less).
Accommodation is in a fully furnished house on the calm water side of South Stradbroke Island. You will be sharing a bedroom in the back of the house with one other backpacker. The bedroom is air conditioned and contains 2 single beds. Our house is about 50m from the calm water and about 300m from the surf side. The house is in the middle of a conservation park where you will commonly see kangaroos and other wildlife around the house.
Food is also provided, and we generally take turns cooking dinner for the whole household. We like to eat healthy and the fridge is generally full with fruits/salads/meat/anything required to make good balanced meals.
After your daily work is done a few examples of what you can do here are: -
- Use the paddleboards to cross between the island on the calm water side.
- Snorkelling on the rocks on the southern tip.
- There is a world class surf spot at the Southern end of the island and smaller waves in front of our house for beginners. (We have a variation of surfboards for you to borrow).
- Go fishing
- Have a fire on beach
We have a small boat that we use to get to the mainland for pick up/drop offs and any general shopping. There are no roads or stores on the island, therefore we usually go food shopping about once a week.
