Visit a unique Sheep Station for a traditional outback experience including Aussie tucker and a variety of entertaining shows.
Tobruk Sheep Station is one of the most beautiful, authentic, rural and outback experiences in Australia. Set on 150 acres on a high plateau above the Hawkesbury River and surrounded by State Forests, it has amazing views across to the Blue Mountains. After a 70 minute drive through Sydney’s north west rural region you will be greeted by a Stockman on horseback, who will guide you to the Drover’s Camp where your adventure begins.
Start the morning with traditional camp fire billy tea and damper (Australian soda bread) before sitting back to watch the show.
The Outback Show is an exciting and engaging experience, which includes skilful demonstrations and performances, all delivered with a sense of fun and entertainment. Enjoy the interesting activities such as sheep mustering, working dog displays, whip cracking, boomerang throwing and a wool room presentation.
Luncheon will be an authentic Aussie rump steak barbeque accompanied by bread, potatoes, salad and sauces followed by a traditional Aussie dessert, all washed downed with a choice of drinks including spring water, wine, beer, tea, coffee or fruit juice.
The sheep shearing demonstration includes both blade and mechanical shearing and a brief outline of the history of the shearing industry and the Aussie Shearer. At the end of the demonstration, you can try your hand at shearing.
A truly memorable day.
Note: There is a total of 45 minutes of walking over uneven, unpaved terrain. Comfortable, enclosed shoes are recommended.
