TOBRUK SHEEP STATION

Relax and enjoy the day as the stockmen guide you through a four hour interactive and authentic outback experience, full of fun, good old Aussie humour and delicious food.

MORNING TEA AT THE DROVER’S CAMP

Assemble at the Drovers’ Camp and enjoy Billy Tea and Damper, the traditional refreshment for Stockmen and Drovers.  Early Australian settlers brewed their tea in a billycan. When the water boils, it is removed from the fire, and a handful of tea leaves are added.  This is then left to brew for a few minutes or swung in a large arc to settle the leaves. Damper is the  traditional bushman’s bread originally made from flour, water and salt and cooked in the campfire.

AUSTRALIAN WORKING DOG DISPLAY

See a sheep muster and a working dog display. A muster is the process of rounding up sheep with the enthusiastic assistance of the the bushman’s most dedicated and furry companion, his dog. Watch the expert stockman control the Australian Kelpies and Cattle Dogs with casual ease.  Crossbred from the native Dingoes, Australian working dogs are loyal, hardworking and intelligent, making them the perfect farmhands.

SHEEP SHEARING AND WOOL PRODUCTION

Enjoy a demonstration by your Aussie Bush shearer in the art of shearing a sheep, conducted in the most unique shearing shed in Australia. Learn about the different grades of wool and the history of the wool industry, on which much of early Australian wealth was built. By 1870, Australia was renowned for “living off the sheep’s back” by being the largest producer of wool in the world. You may also get the opportunity to try your hand at shearing a sheep.

AUSSIE BBQ LUNCH

Indulge in a traditional Aussie BBQ lunch with a delicious BBQ steak, salad, tea and coffee.

THROW A BOOMERANG

Experience a demonstration of whip cracking and Boomerang throwing by the local Stockman, then take the opportunity to try it out for yourself!
