    Description

    Dear Workawayers,

    I would like a keen happy person, to join me (& my grown children occasionally) at my cattle property located on the Mid North Coast of New South Wales, Australia.

    The property is set amongst beautiful mountainous hills abundant with Australian wildlife and sits on the George's Creek which joins the larger Macleay River just down the road.
    At this Junction we run a camping ground which attracts people from all over the world because of the stunning location and local activities including fishing, canoeing, bushwalking, birdwatching, and simply relaxing and getting away from it all!

    We also provide tourist accommodation in rustic huts located on the river which are very popular because of the beautiful setting and privacy.

    My property produces beef cattle, so we are frequently getting out on horseback up the river and into the mountains to check on them and care for them.

    My property is very remote & located 88km (about 1.5 hours drive) from the town of Armidale & Around 96km (about 2 hours drive) from the town of Kempsey (New South Wales).
    We go into Armidale once a fortnight to go shopping & buy supplies, etc.

    Cheers, Neil

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Workawayers will be speaking English, gaining experience in working with cattle and riding and caring for horses.

    Experience the wonderful Australian lifestyle.

    Recreational activities include swimming, fishing (Australian Bass, trout, mullet, catfish, eels), bushwalking, canoeing, bird watching, four wheel driving, mountain climbing, mountain biking, etc.

    It is a wonderful place to relax, read, write, study and simply wind down.
