Stay and Work on an Organic Cattle Station

Take part in the working day of a real Australian cattle property

Cattle-stationThe Shadforth family operates an organic pastoral lease to assure minimal impact to their land, which has never been cleared, nor seen fertiliser or chemicals. The cattle eat nothing but the woodland grass, so their meat is also free of the antibiotics fed to grain-fed cattle.

Seven Emu regularly welcomes registered WWOOFers (willing workers on organic farms) to get their hands dirty in the day-to-day activities of the family and their crew in managing the station, in return for meals and accommodation.

It’s no leisurely holiday – you’ll be worked hard, doing anything from droving cattle on club bikes or horses to putting up or repairing the kilometres of fencing on the property. You’ll eat well and sleep well after a good honest day’s yakka – all in the stunning outback wilderness of Australia’s Northern Territory.

Contact Seven Emu Station for more details of a WWOOFer stay. A day’s work on the property earns you a hearty evening meal and a night’s accommodation. You must quote your WWOOFer number.
