WILL THE VOLUNTEER HAVE SEPARATE ACCOMMODATION? - Yes

We manage a cattle station outside of Emerald.. We are about an hour from Emerald (about 70kms) on the very end of a dirt road. Our boss also owns a number of other properties about 2 hours away and my husband, Anthony often travels over there to work and can be away for a week or so depending. Kulumur is what we call "heaven on earth" - We have a mountain range, with caves and rocky outcrops running through the middle of the property as well as the Nogoa River on the boundary. The country is a mix of sandy flats, range country as well as beautiful hidden valleys in amongst the mountain range. We often go out to the river to catch red claw and the girls love coming to help in the cattle yards and to be involved in everything that we do... We go into town twice a week to train for gymnastics as Amelia is level 4 competitive gymnast and I coach beginner gymnastics... Horses are a very big part of our lives with all of the girls riding, we often go to campdrafts and are involved in our local campdraft committee.
