Last year my wife and I took on the caretaking of Moreton Telegraph Station, Cape York for the Wet. It was a wonderful experience.

If you enjoy remote, isolated, your own company & the opportunity to experience Cape York lush & green & and don't mind a bit of mechanical tinkering, mowing etc this may suit you.

They had a couple lined up for this forthcoming wet season who have had to pull out at short notice. I offered to use the internet to see if I could find anyone interested for them.

They need someone from October '22 through to Late April/Early May. Short notice, but can't be helped. You need to be able to commit for the entire Wet season.

Couples preferred, but singles considered.

No pay but comfortable accommodation & all the home comforts including Sat Tv & Sat NBN.

Enough to keep you occupied without being hard work. Pretty cruisy really.

All food provided (negotiated to suit our tastes & dietary requirements)- a wet season order for all frozen, dry & canned goods gets brought up buy freight truck before the roads close & fresh produce & perishables are delivered weekly by mail plane which lands on the property's airstrip. We ate well, cost us nothing, & left with our fuel tanks full. (Mail plane can also carry passengers - around $180 each way to/from Cairns - so you can have visitors if you wish once the roads are closed. RFDS can land on Airstrip if need arises).

For more info about what is required check out the two blog posts I wrote covering our time there or feel free to drop me a line to ask anything you want. (use the contact page on our blog to send me an email)



Or contact Mike & Wendy (owners) directly on 07 4060 3360

They are good, generous & supportive folk who will remain available by phone or email if needed whilst there. We would be happy to return there if we weren't already committed elsewhere on the Cape.
