ABOUT US
Ever get into a situation that was NOTHING like your expectations? Of course, we all have! Arriving at a cattle station is no different and that’s a big reason why we started this site. We are a station in north Queensland and we wanted to make this site to help people prepare for (some people) the unknown and arriving with the romantic expectation that they would be riding a horse at sunset and all day long.
Unfortunately, they didn’t consider a realistic approach, and were quite disappointed . What we aim to do here is provide a realistic account of life on a cattle station and to outline what makes a good person to suit the station life, or try and prepare you. This way, people can make an informed decision to come work on a cattle station, or as we call it, paradise.
