Redlands Station is 200km west of Townsville and only a 40min drive from the historical city of Charters Towers, which is also known as the City of Schools. There is regular train & bus transport to Charters Towers, and then west on to Mt Isa. . We have 2 cattle properties: 1 in the Charters Towers area and  one 460km west in the Richmond area.

    At Redlands Station we grow hay, plus breed and trade our own cattle.

    Work includes helping out with the maintenance and establishment of our orchard and gardens; feeding & husbandry of poultry, working dogs & baby orphan calves. Depending on the time of year your maybe asked to help with our cattle or hay farming.
