We are looking for 1, 2 or a group (girls or boys) to help on our cattle station located in Central West Queensland. Activities to help with are;
* Mustering cattle on two wheel motorbike,
* Spraying weeds
* Helping to set up a station poly pipe stock watering system
* General farm duties
* Vehicle maintenance.
* Fencing and Fence maintenance
* Homestead maintenance
on cattle station in Central West Qld near Tambo.
Things you would have the opportunity to experience and learn:
Working with cattle
Mustering on Motorbikes
Whilst this work is new to most travelers it provides an opportunity to learn new skills and to gain a unique experience of a working Outback Station. We are also surrounded by Australian wildlife, so you will get to see kangaroos, emus, echidnas', frogs and we also have a friendly camel.
Included with the work we are offering a fully furnished, shared, quarters style accommodation, as well as food to prepare meals for yourself or on occasion we would share a meal at the main (host) house. The accommodation is shared with 2 other full-time Australian, staff.
Helpers will need to bring/arrive with a broad brim hat, long sleeve work shirts, jeans and sturdy boots, ready for work, also if you are arriving in winter a warm jacket as it gets cold!!!. Length of stay negotiable and we will do our best to make you feel at home here in the outback. We are happy to host someone for 1 week or 1 month or however long you are wanting to stay.
We are located an overnight bus (to Tambo) or train trip (to Charleville) from Brisbane. We love to welcome our helpers to local community events and take you along to anything we attend. If you catch bus/train to "town" we will collect you from the bus stop or train station. If you have your own transport we will give you full directions to get here.
If this sounds like its for you please send us an email.
Also your mobile phone will only work on the TELSTRA network (we have limited coverage/patchy reception) but you won't get anything on any other network provider. Sometimes even with Telstra there is no reception but you would always have reception at the house/accommodation.
That's it - we look forward to hearing from you.
