We would love to have you come and stay and help us in the fight against gamba grass, whilst experiencing a small cattle farm. Duties include checking the horses, help to feed the horses, feeding cattle, checking weaners. checking fences. Fixing fences. checking the water in the Billabong. exploring. We have a free-flowing thermal bore that makes the Thermal pool an ideal place to cool off. Birds crocs, pythons, fish abound. Fantastic sunset photos from the hill over the finniss valley.
we will provide all the food(plus Goon) and camping in our bush in exchange for help approximately 6 hours per day,weekends off

I've included our review
We spent 10 days in Errol's bushes, it was great!
We helped him in his work, to take care of the animals, to remove the barbed wire, in exchange for being able to camp in his bush and be fed. He dropped us off at many places, such as Lake Bennet, Lietchifiled, etc.
Its bush is very large, very natural and magnificent. You can see cows, buffaloes, wallabies, kangaroos, and horses.
I highly recommend it!!
