POSITION VACANT: MANAGER/MANAGEMENT COUPLE, 2024 season

We are seeking an experienced, energetic and motivated manager or management couple to run Talaroo Hot Springs and caravan park for the 2024 season from March to October.  This is a great opportunity to experience a unique and spectacular part of outback Queensland and to join an exciting new eco and cultural tourism venture.

 

The Manager position involves a range of duties and is a very hands-on role reporting to the General Manager of Ewamian Limited.  The position is full time but could be split between two persons with additional part time/casual hours available for the second person in a maintenance role.

The successful applicant(s) will be energetic and have a flexible attitude to industry hours as well as strong administration, customer service, and trade skills. This position is seasonal and the business operates from April to October annually.

Talaroo is relatively remote being 3 hours drive from Atherton and 4 ½ hours from Cairns and accommodation on site is limited, so this position is best suited to persons with their own caravan or RV, although single donga accommodation is also available on site.
