  • Description

    Description

    We are a young family with 5 children running our family cattle station in
    NW Queensland. We have a property near Julia Creek where we fatten weaners sent down from Normanton. We love hosting workawayer, and balance hardwork with good fun! We love helping people practice their English. We have a baby, a toddler and three children who are busy with school of the air and playing, and love a lot of interaction with workawayers! At the moment, the work is less stock orientated and more maintenance type work, due to the dry times, or helping in the garden and with the children.

    During mustering season we are busy mustering and branding
    weaners, drafting cattle. For the rest of the time we keep busy with general
    farmwork, gardening , checking cattle and waters. We use motorbikes not
    horses. We also have some goats, chooks, cats , dogs and sometimes poddy
    calves which need daily feeding. Come visit us for an outback experience with a young Aussie family!
