This is a working drought master stud cattle farm, the property also runs a successful contracting company which specialises is rural / commercial fencing and charter coach hire services.

Coopers as we prefer to call it is located approx. 131km SW from Rockhampton or around 1hr 35mins drive.
It is preferred that guests have their own transportation however lifts in / out of Rockhampton can be arranged.

We offer a great location to base yourself if your looking to enjoy the following:
- working stud cattle farm
- genuine outback experience
- open camp fires / star gazing in clear skies
- a base camp to explore the nearby "Isla George" which boasts a maze of gorges, sandstone outcrops and striking rock formations, this park protects many rare and threatened plant species. Gorge Creek, a tributary of the Dawson River, flows through the park.

- gardening
- general cleaning
- cooking

Paid work opportunities will be available throughout the year at various times. So please don't hesitate to enquire when staying.
