Station Hand

Wyoming Station Charleville, Queensland

Job Description

Wyoming Station in South West Queensland has vacancy for volunteers seeking a chance to work with horses on a large cattle and horse breeding station. Daily jobs will include feeding and watering horses and other animals. Horse riding/educating will be required depending on experience. Other jobs include monitoring cattle waters, feeding cattle supplements, mustering (horseback mostly, sometime motorbike), some cooking and help in house. You will have separate accommodation with shower and toilet and main meals with family. In return you will get to experience life on an outback cattle station and their community. It is best to stay a minimum of 3 weeks to ensure you get cattle mustering experience. Volunteers with above average horse riding skills will get the most benefit from this help exchange. We have been taking in volunteers, mostly from Europe & UK for 6 years and many have gone home with lifetime memories. Note: we receive many suitable applications and unfortunately cannot take in more than 2 people at a time... so if you are accepted for a position, please do your best to honour it as you not only let the host down but the many people who would have loved the opportunity for this type of work and were turned away.

  This job vacancy was been posted over 40 days ago, but is still active and currently accepting new applications.
