My husband, 8 month year old son and I live on a large Australian Outback cattle and sheep station. Our home is a 4-bedroom cottage by the river offering guests a taste of classic station living amidst modern furnishings.
We are seeking a friendly female or older couple to assist in minding our son (reading books, playing on the ground with toys etc) as well as helping out around the home and in the garden. This is a flexible role which will see you with free time to get out and about on the station.
In return, we invite you to live and eat with us and experience the joy of living Outback. The wildlife, including bird life, is incredible and you don’t have to venture far to see it.
Your bedroom in our home has a queen-sized bed with your own bathroom. Limited use of phone and WIFI is available. You can get 2 bars of reception with Telstra Next-G phones. All meals provided, including camp ovens by the fire!
If you want to experience work on a cattle and sheep station, you may also have this opportunity, as my husband helps to manage the station we live on.
We have chickens, a horse, dog and a veggie patch!
People who genuinely want to experience station life need only apply. We are 4 hrs driving from the major township of Broken Hill (on the wilcannia wanaaring road NE of Broken Hill). We are 1 hour drive to the nearest town of White Cliffs. If you are after tranquillity and a break from the city life, you have come to the right place!
