Taste of Outback Farm Life

A taste of life on an outback farm was on the menu for girls in our Year 7 Townsville programs during a recent combined camp at Virginia Park Station, a working cattle station near Charters Towers.

The students took part in some farm activities, including horse riding, cow milking, calf branding and orienteering, which gave them an exposure to the realities of farm life in the Australian outback.

The camp presented the girl with an opportunity to work on some important personal attributes – resilience, teamwork and leadership – as well as strengthening their bonds with one another and their Stars Mentors.
