    Descripción

    A small cattle station located in the north central Gascoyne, on the southern edge of the Pilbara, in Western Australia. It is an arid desert region receiving 220mm of annual rainfall. The station straddles the Kenneth & Godfrey Ranges with their associated river country, which makes for a varied landscape. A creek, which is more of a river, flows through the property and includes many natural water holes, springs and billabongs. As well as the cattle, there is an abundance of native wildlife and spectacular scenery to enjoy both during and after hours.

    Volunteering includes landcare tasks (eco projects) to rehabilitate degraded land, general station maintenance of waters & fences, collecting firewood, etcetera. Depending on the time of your visit, there may be cattle work as well. You should have a good pair of boots, a wide hat and full cover work clothes for the tasks here.

    Summer, November to March, can be hot with temperatures up and over 40C. April to October has lower, more comfortable temperatures and cool to cold nights.

    Pingandy is isolated; there are no local shops to buy something you may have forgotten. We are approximately 1,200km north of Perth. You can get here with your own transport but note that the last 360km will be on gravel roads (an extra spare tyre is a good idea). You can arrive via Mount Augustus (96km) to the West, Meekatharra (440km) to the south, or Paraburdoo (320km) from the north.

    Alternately, you can catch a bus from Perth to Meekatharra and I can pick you from there or, you can catch a flight from Perth to Paraburdoo and I can pick you up there.
