We require someone to help feed our working dogs, start a pump and check the show cattle over Christmas as our last Christmas away from the property was in 2013.  Our property “Rosevale” has had another minor flood again this year (this is about our 7th flood since 2011), We were experiencing very dry conditions before the flooding.  Our eldest daughter just got married and she only has 2 days off and therefore we would like to spend Christmas with her and her new husband.

My husband and I have just had to endure a 4 day Trial (family estate issues), which has prompted our wanting to have all of our children (4 daughters) around us for Christmas.  We have highway frontage on the property (32 kms from Eidsvold and 45 kms from Monto as well as 2 and a half hours from Bundeberg), air conditioning throughout the house and bedrooms. Cania Gorge is just outside of Monto and Wuruma Dam is not far (less than 20 kms) from our property Rosevale. No extra accommodation is required. Start date 23rd Dec 2017 This is a volunteer position, if you have any further questions please ask when applying.
