Our property is a very picturesque cattle farm approx 30km from Monto and only a few kms from Cania Gorge National Park which offers many beautiful bushwalking tracks, wildlife and native flora.

On our farm we have a Brahman cattle stud as well as a few pigs, chickens, dogs and cats. Work includes all year round general farm maintenance, fencing, irrigating crops and hay production, gardening, handling livestock, mowing lawns, some house duties.

There are many diverse and fun activities we regularly do including rifle and pistol club, we have a pool table, love watching movies and playing PS3 games and bushwalking at the National Park.

We have accommodation for 1 to 4 people in a self contained railway cabin. The meals are traditional home cooked meals consisting of red meat, chicken and fish.

No smoking inside and no drugs.

There several local bus services that come to Monto. One comes on Wednesday from Bundaberg and the other comes to Monto on Friday from Maryborough.

Here is an internet link to the bus timetables:
