Changing Worlds is proud to be associated with some very successful farming and agriculture programmes in Australia and New Zealand. This would be of considerable interest to students from agricultural backgrounds and who want to travel but at the same time learn more about the trade.
Changing Worlds can offer the opportunity to work on sheep and cattle stations in the Australian outback. This is not for the soft hearted as this is a huge physical challenge for those people who like working out of doors for long hours.
All our placements are located in the Mount Isa - Cloncurry - Winton triangle of Western Queensland.
These stations are huge - some the size of an English county! That's the magnitude of what lies ahead.
You need to be the type of person who listens well to instructions as some of this work canbe dangerous. Listen to the locals and you will be fine!
There is horse work available but do not expect to be horse back every day of the week. Indeed in the majority of cases mustering now takes place on quad bikes or on helicopters!
If you think you can cope with sheer hardwork and the isolation of the Aussie outback then click here.
For those who like the idea of hard work but do not fancy the idea of living miles from anywhere then read on...we offer farming placements on farms in North Island, New Zealand.
These are mainly dairy farms although we are associated with horse riding ventures too!
Work means getting up 'before the birds' and showing willing at such an early hour!
All our placements are in the Northlands district of North Island, about three hours drive North of Auckland.

In all cases a clean UK driving licence would really help. It is not a pre-requisite but will certainly add to your experience.
Sadly, for insurance purposes, we are unable to offer any farm machinery work eg. driving tractors.
