Led by an experienced manager, we are looking for someone passionate about working in the pastoral industry and being on the land to join the crew. Experience on 2-wheel motorbikes is an advantage along with previous sheep and / or livestock experience, however we are willing to invest the time to develop someone in these areas as needed. Accommodation suitable for a single person is available at the property.

Some of what you will be involved in:

  • Mustering of sheep on 2-wheel motorbikes
  • Water runs – checking various dams, bores and water points
