They will view or participate in a variety of farming activities including fencing (that is, fixing and removing fences), feeding stock, clearing out feed troughs, mucking out pens, sheep shearing, sheep dressing, fishing and many more.

The team will also visit a local cotton gin (a machine for separating cotton from its seeds), the biggest red gum, the Back of Bourke Centre, the Jandra Paddleboat and much more.

Students head back to Dubbo on Thursday morning to catch a train, returning them to Sydney in the late afternoon.

This camp is for those who want to experience working in a team and experiencing the outback. A rare adventure on a working outback farm.

Transport arrangements are to be confirmed once numbers are known.

Please note that this program is a customised program for SOW 2019 and while the school contributes the majority of funds towards it, due to the long distances of this particular program, a $250 surcharge is necessary.
