This is a working sheep and cattle farm located in Queensland's Outback region. The farm is owned and managed by the Hobbs family.

The farm involves sheep and cattle work such as mustering (herding on motorbikes), fencing, driving tractors and other stock work.

We have had many travellers stay and work on the farm from a wide range of countries. Whilst the work is new to most travellers it provides an opportunity to learn new skills and to gain a unique experience of a working Outback Station.

As the farm involves learning new skills we recommend travellers to stay a minimum of one month so that they have the opportunity to experience a range of activities most visitor end up staying for 3 to 4 months.We are located in rural Australia.

Our family is friendly and welcomes visitors into our house. We eat some meals with our visitors and encourage them to participate in the local community events and activities.

A 2 bedroom house that has been renovated is available for travellers and is located 100 metres from the homestead. We are happy to invite up to 1 or 2 travellers at a time and are happy to vary the type of work depending on what our travellers are interested in.

We are located an overnight bus trip from Brisbane and half an hours drive to the town of Tambo.

A typical farm day may vary from mustering cattle or sheep to welding or fixing a fence. We provide the time and opportunity to learn these skills and encourage visitors to stay long enough to practice and use these skills. We have found that our visitors love this challenge and the feeling of accomplishing something they would never have had a chance to experience.
