WWOOFing at Bamboo Land

Bamboo Land offers accomodation to registered WWOOfers (Willing Workers On Organic Farms). The WWOOF program enables travellers to work for their board (food and accomodation). If you are not a registered WWOOFer and would like to become one, or you would simply like to know more about the program, check the WWOOF website (www.wwoof.com.au).

WWOOFers working

People from all over the world are welcome to come and stay at Bamboo Land.

It is hoped that the stay at Bamboo Land is valuable and enjoyable experience for the guests and ofcourse beneficial and a good help for the host - its a type of exchange program.
Guests become 'part of the family' and are welcome to take part in social events like BBQs, meals at 'the pub', etc. whilst also helping out with the chores such as cooking, shopping and cleaning.

It is expected that WWOOFers work for 6 hours per day, 5 days a week. Work starts at 7.00am and finishes at 2.00pm, with 1 hour for lunch. Weekends are time to relax. It is preferred that the minimum stay be no less than 2 weeks. This amount of time is needed in order for guests to really have the time to settle in and learn the routines and jobs of the nursery and the household.

 

Having a car is advantageous but not necessary. The closest town is about 5km away.

 

...Work

The work is generally quite varied. Some days will be spent out in the gardens - pruning, weeding, raking, etc whereas other days might be spent potting up plants in the nursery. Preparing and packing plants for orders is also part of the work.

...Rest

Meals are usually cooked together and usually contain meat. So for those vegetarians out there, you may have to improvise and make you own, or alternatively take charge of the cooking and create some wonderful vegetarian dishes to impress your host.

Accomodation is in a large modern house. The bedrooms are well furnished and guests have access to their own toilet and bathroom. Guests have free use of computer and broadband internet.

...Play

Bamboo Land is located on a river-front property, which means that its an ideal location for swimming, fishing and canoeing. Canoeing on the calm fresh water of the river is a great way to experience the natural scenery and wildlife of the area. The afternoons can easily be spent around the house with a couple of games of table tennis or a simple laze around the pool. 
For the weekends, there is plenty to see and do in the surrounding area. The most spectacular is the world famous Fraser Island which is just a short boat trip from Hervey Bay. It really is a spectacular place and a must see for travellers. From late July to November is whale season in Hervey Bay, during which time there is a multitude of half and full day whale watch tours available. Other nearby places which are recommended to visit are Rainbow Beach (for a great surf beach) and Tin Can Bay (to feed and swim with dolphins).

Bamboo Land is a beautiful property / company. Spending 11 days there was an experience I will not forget. The house we stayed in was very nice and we felt like we were part of the family. Even though there was a room with two single beds, my sister and me got to have our own bedrooms. The hosts are super friendly and hardworking people. They ensure that wwoofers get good and delicious food! I would definately recommend Bamboo Land to other wwoofers.

We couldn't expect better spot than Bambooland for our first Wwoofing experience. In fact, we enjoyed there:

- a very comfortable house, with all the facilities : Internet, swimming pool, our own bathroom, washing machine...
- a very relaxing environment, with the beautiful Bamboo Parc, and the proximity of the river (and the possibility to do canoe)
- very good meals and wine (with a special mention for the curry)
- and, last but not least, very nice and friendly people, who did their best to made our stay comfortable.

The job was pleasant and not too physically demanding, like gardening activities. It was the opportunity to learn a little about Bamboo's world in a relaxed atmosphere.

Thank you for all the good moments we spent in Bambooland.

I have enjoyed my time at bambooland tremendously. it has been amazing to walk among the bamboo giants in the park and it's been inspiring to plant the small shoots and see them grow.

The afternoons here have been very creative and there seem to be no end to things you can make out of bamboo.


the atmosphere in this place is comfortable and the evenings are great fun as everyone cooks and eats and socialize together. If you are interested in learning and open for new experiences you will find bambooland a nice oasis.

To be able to use the tropical looking pool after a sweaty workday didn't make the time any worse;)
had an awesome time and would love to come back in the future and see what new creations and new plants there will be in the park.

all the best in the future

Thanks so much for a great time and making me feel very welcome and at home!

This was my first WWOOF-ing experience and I love it; Bambooland is a beautifull, friendly and relaxed environment. 
Janne and his family work very hard and it's great to be a part of that. Enough time to play for WWOOF-ers; enjoy walks, canoeing, table tennis or chill out by the pool. Kangaroo's, snakes and lots of birds around. Local pub is a fun experience! 
Janne's house is great with nice rooms for WWOOFers and I loved the home made bread and open fire BBQ. Good memorries about making (burnt) cookies, coffeetimes, visiting the 'neighbours' and the thunderstorm!

WWOOFers: if your an active person who's keen on a great experience away from the backpackers lifestyle in 'Bambooheaven': come to this place!

Thanks Janne, Klas & Mona!

This place is fab! Had a great time here and it was my 1st WWOOFing experience.

The bedrooms are perfect and meals are great. Janne is a fantastic cook and looked after me well. Had fun on our night to Hervey Bay and in the pub at Howard. Did all sorts of different things like planting bamboo, making bread, bottling beer and general garden duties.

Went canoeing down the river in my time off once too!

Janne's family are so nice. His dad is great and Mona is lovely. Had lots of nice chats and coffees! I couldn't have asked to have a nicer time and would recommend this place to everyone.

Thanks Janne!

You already know we enjoyed a lot our stay with you. The house is nice - the backyard aswell. Really quiet. 
Job was fun - I learnt alot. You have a lovely cat and it was nice to share meals with you and make beer :) 

It could not have been better for a first experience.
Thankyou.
