  • Description



    Jake and I live on a cattle station in the Far North of South Australia, approx 10 hours from Adelaide and 5 hours from Alice Springs - We are looking for workawayers to come and stay with us, help out around the place and experience what life is like in the outback!

    Jobs will include;
    *Help with our 3 children
    *Helping with general station work: checking cattle waters, repairing fences, helping install new water points etc
    *General help around the house - cooking and cleaning
    *Cattle work - feeding the calves

    We can help you to learn how to do station work; ride a motorbike, ride a horse and put up a fence.

    You'll get too see plenty of wildlife; kangaroos, emus and feral animals that are wondering around e.g. camels and wild horses

    People are welcome either on their own or couples

    It is very remote where we live so if you like to go to the pub every night then this might not be the place but we can make sure there is a cold beer at the end of the day.

    We also eat lots and lots of beef…so vegetarians might go hungry!

    The Greyhound Bus drives past the property entrance every day

    Second Year Visa Eligible
