Tobruk Sheep Station is a great family day out, that really celebrates what is great about the Australian country!
Located in the Hawkesbury Valley, is a place where you can enjoy Outback Programs which will give kids a great insight into that authentic rural outback experience!
There are even shows that demonstrate the skill of herding the sheep! After all – it is a sheep station!
The mustering of sheep is quite a challenge, and a skill, so kids will be amazed at how dogs are used to move the sheep to the stockyards. It can often be lively and comical too!
Then, the sheep need to be sheared! After all, how do you think you get that lovely wool jumper? The history of shearing is also told, as you watch first hand how it’s done, so kids will really gain a great understanding of this age old skill.
But of course, there is SO much more to do at Tobruk Sheep Station. You can see how to crack a whip, or throw a boomerang, and there are traditional refreshments like tea and dampers – just how the stockmen like it!
There are period buildings that will take you back in time, and you can imagine what life was like years ago – long before your time!
There are also craft demonstrations, so kids might even be inspired to create their own masterpiece, and there are old time refreshments, so those taste buds have a great day out too!
It’s a family day out of good old Aussie humour, and mouthwatering food!
History, animals, and Aussie fun at the Tobruk Sheep Station – and we love it!
