  • Description


    Experience the Australian Outback on a large cattle station near Roma! We have 3 young energetic boys aged 4, 2 and 6 months and basically need an extra set of hands to help Lucy with the kids, around the house, garden and feeding cattle. There’s also plenty of manual work to assist Dan with fencing, cattle work and general farm maintenance. We live in a beautiful part of the world on top of the great dividing range so there’s plenty of beautiful spots to explore! We live 65km from our nearest town, Mitchell so don’t expect to duck in fit your morning coffee but if you love kids, animals, the great outdoors and thrive on throwing yourself into new experiences you will have an amazing time!!!
