House - Large furnished modern 3 bedroom home, on 11ha.

Power, and internet all connected. Wood and electric oven and hotwater, wood fireplace and oil heaters.

No smoking allowed in the house.

Block is mostly natural bush including rainforest.  We have vegetable and herb gardens and 2ha of mixed fruit orchard including stone fruit, citrus, apples figs, and many tropicals (mango, lychee, soursop, canibola, etc).

Bush walking and horse, bike riding available on the forestry trails.

Area for caravan if desired.

Location: Mt Fox up in the mountains  ~55 km (1 hr drive mostly bitumen) west behind Ingham (nearest shops) which is 3hr south of Cairns and 1hr north of Townsville.  So while in north Queensland it is beautifully cool at night most of the year and we enjoy sitting near the fire at night for 6 months of the year.


- feed and check water for 2 horses, 7 chickens and 4 ducks.

- turn the taps to the irrigation on and off if we do or don't get rain; rest is automatic.

- apply biological pesticides (i.e. chilli spray) if needed on young citrus trees and herbs etc.

You are welcome to ride one of the horses if you are an experienced rider or you can bring your own horse.

Pets:  sorry no cats as we have too much bird and other wild life, dogs are OK if kept out of the house and in the large house yard.
