Mustering stock camps

As you travel through the country to meet up with us you may be lucky enough to see our very skilled and hardy stockmen on the job.
Their work is long, hard and often dangerous. Stockmen must contend with ferocious wild cattle, searing summer heat and an incredible loneliness. They are always very happy for a chat so don't hesitate to stop if you see them. They'll be difficult to find however as they populate the outback in numbers fewer than 1 per 4,000 square kilometres!
