The Programme


This is a 9 day programme that begins in Noosa, a beautiful tourist destination located at the top of the sunshine coast in Queensland. You can recover from jet lag before heading to the farm, and enjoy many of the local tourist activities that this wonderful area has to offer. These include surfing, visiting Fraser Island, river cruising, exploring national parks and day tripping to Australia Zoo.  All your paperwork such as applications for tax file numbers, medicare, sim cards and bank accounts will be taken care of whilst you're lazing in the sun!

Farm course:

You will be exposed to what life is generally like when living and working on a farm. Exciting activities include horse riding, motorbiking riding, tractor driving, chainsawing and cattle work. One of the key aspects of  this programme is safety in the outback. You will be expected to pitch in with duties around the homestead such as washing up, tidying up and making beds. You will help with general outside jobs such as gardening, washing vehicles and feeding domestic animals.

Paid Jobs

The staff will be able to assess your key strengths and skills during the training week and find you a job that matches your abilities and interests. You will be allocated suitable job offers and then you will be given the chance to talk to employers directly. All your travel arrangements will be organised by the staff.
