Escott is an exceptionally beautiful cattle station, with huge gardens right on the Nicholson river. We have barramundi fishing on our doorstep. it is an absolute oasis.

Mum is the cook and gardener on the station and dad is the manager. We have a staff of around 10 and still are very busy for the rest of the year. We also start hay farming in November and plan a wet season crop after the cattle work is finished. We can also offer work for a partner. Our job can be as little or as much as you like. Just school from 8am to 3pm with an hour lunch and 1/2 hour smoko or also other little jobs after school. We are a very family orientated station.

Accommodation will be provided in staff quarters settings, with shared bathroom and toilet facilities, this is the girls and guest quarters. Also good set up for caravan.

What are the children’s general areas of special interest in school or in their free time?

He enjoys basketball and swimming in the pool as well as cubby building and target shooting.
