    Short Property Description

    Wambiana is a family-owned cattle station that produces grass-fed beef on 57,000 acres, mostly native grasslands.

    We are located about 1 hour from Charters Towers & 3 hours from Townsville.

    As part of our business, we operate a farm tourism enterprise from March – September, providing an educational & entertaining outback experience. Wambiana also has over 100 camels that we use as a biological control for woody weeds. We are committed to responsible & sustainable natural resource management.

There are NO shops nearby, so purchase all personal items before arrival.
