Skills WWOOFers can learn here
Why I became a WWOOF Host
We have had many WWOOFers over the years (We were hosts QU195 from 2005 until 2015) and it has been a great learning experience for us and our kids. We enjoy the cultural exchange and meeting different people from around the world.
We have a very relaxed atmosphere here and everyone has always felt very welcomed and happy. Smoking and drinking is ok and we like to have a few friends over on the weekends for fun.
We are only half hour from Port Douglas and Mossman and you can be dropped off to the beach or town a couple of times a week.
