Only 40km from the Stuart Highway and just a two hour drive to Coober Pedy, Bulgunnia is one of four adjoining Jumbuck stations in the North West Pastoral District of South Australia.

The Coober Pedy region is known for a land rich in minerals and a long-standing Aboriginal connection. It is often recognised as the opal capital of the world.

Work on Bulgunnia is as challenging as it is rewarding, with mobbing starting in January and shearing in February where summer temperatures can easily get to 40°C. This is a great opportunity to learn about sheep and sustainable land management in an arid climate and the importance of maintaining reliable and quality watering infrastructure.

Bulgunnia’s proximity to the Stuart Highway encourages participation in social events with its neighbouring stations and in Glendambo and Coober Pedy. Key events include:

  • Coober Pedy Races
  • Glendambo Gymkhana

At Bulgunnia, a great attitude and a willingness to learn will leave you in good stead. Test yourself and enjoy the challenge in fast-paced environment.
