We are looking for a couple or individual/s who would like to help out on our two sheep and cattle farms; one about 85 km and the other 10km from Longreach in Central West Queensland.

Our days are spent mostly with the sheep and cattle and may include feeding lambs and calves, mustering and checking watering facilities as well as caring for sheep & cattle work dogs throughout the week. There are also miscellaneous maintenance tasks around the farm and some gardening around the homestead.

We supply accommodation (air conditioned) and food - cottage and another accommodation building is close to but independent from the family. We do prefer you are a non smoker.

We have hosted backpackers/travellers since 1990 and have enjoyed sharing many property and outback experiences. For those who are keen and interested with a willing attitude as well as a genuine interest in learning the lifestyle and providing assistance, there is sometimes the opportunity of a paid position.

We are happy and eligible to sign off on second (2nd) year visas.

Our property and Longreach itself have many interesting and genuine tourist attractions to enjoy on afternoons/days/weekends.
Please call or e-mail if you would like more information on our lifestyle and work in the outback at this time of the year.

Telstra is the most reliable mobile and internet provider in this area.

Thank you
Lyn
