About Us;- Our Property is located on the Great Dividing Range next to the Bunya Mountains National Park in Queensland (Approx 3 hours from Brisbane). We currently run beef cattle however have lots of other animals including horses, sheep, working dogs, corgi`s, guardian dogs, pigs, cats and chooks. Being so close to the National Park also provides us with lots of native wildlife.

We are a family unit consisting of myself, my husband and our daughters ( Ages - 15 and 4). You will be provided with food, accommodation, Internet (limited download), in exchange for helping us around the farm.

Your accommodation will be within our house, so please take this into account when applying. (Children in residence - one being very young). You will be treated as one of our family and therefore we expect the same.

Work continues all year round and includes;- farm maintenance, feeding animals, fencing, moving irrigating pipes, stock work, spraying/killing weeds and some child/house duties (eg/ washing your own sheets, cleaning your bathroom or helping with dinner prep, etc).

We can teach you any skills required on the job however if you are a confident horse rider that`s a bonus. All our mustering is generally done on horses or foot due to the hills.

Our property is a work in the making that could use the assistance of honest, self driven, willing and positive people who would like to have an experience in rural but not remote Australia.

We will show our helper the local attractions and you will have the opportunity to experience what farm life in Australia is all about.

Generally we request that helpers stay for a minimum of 3 weeks. We are currently looking for helpers for 2019. If this sounds like what you are looking for, please contact us as soon as possible to organise your stay.
