Farm Visit Activities
All visitors to Tobruk enjoy a unique and real Australian farm experience. Relax and enjoy the day as our stockmen guide you through an interactive and authentic outback experience, full of fun, good old Aussie humour and sumptuous food. Below are some of the Tobruk farm visit activities for you to enjoy.
Sheep Muster & Yardwork
The sheep are mustered and moved to the stockyards for drafting; this is often very lively and comical as sheep can be unpredictable and the dogs often need to work ‘overtime’ to achieve their objective. A demonstration is then given on the drafting of sheep through the yards by the dogs.
The history of shearing and life of the shearer is explained in an both and educational and entertaining manner. Members of audience often have the opportunity to try their hand at shearing a sheep where the participants work with the experienced shearer under strict guidance …
Whip Cracking & Boomerang Throwing Demonstration
The Aboriginal technique of boomerang throwing follows the whip cracking demonstration. Originally used as a hunting weapon, the boomerang at Tobruk is demonstrated and used as a recreational device only!
Billy Tea & Damper
Billy Tea is always best accompanied by a fresh damper and you won’t miss out on this at Tobruk Sheep Station. In colonial Australia, stockmen developed the technique of making damper out of necessity …
Whip Cracking & Boomerang Throwing Participation
Our whips are usable by all ages and we have boomerangs available for both left and right handed people. If directions are followed, the boomerang should return to the thrower and the whips should crack!
Tractor Trailer Ride (Optional Extra)
Seating up to 20 people, it is an optional extra for your tour that all guests are sure to enjoy!
