More about Outback Stays

Outback Stays

Students from USA experience a trip of a lifetime.

Each one of us was treated like family by the Lyons Family...We helped with branding and dipping the cattle, and had a great laugh helping catch a few pigs who escaped their pen! I can't believe we only stayed there for two nights. I left with such love for this family and a great appreciation for life on an Outback station...An incredible experience not to be missed!
