Overview

Located in the magnificent Hawkesbury Valley, just over one hour from the heart of Sydney CBD, Tobruk Sydney offers you a day like no other. The expansive acreage overlooking the Hawkesbury River Valley and Blue Mountains allows you to experience a variety of activities, suitable for all ages. With sheep shearing, working dogs mustering sheep, duck shows, whip and boomerang demonstrations and Stockman on horseback, Tobruk Sydney is packed full of fun experiences you will never forget. Greeted by a Stockman on horseback, you will drive into Tobruk Sydney with breathtaking views of the property, with the Blue Mountains showing off in the background. Upon arrival, you will be greeted by the friendly staff and they will direct you over to our 'Drovers Camp' where the Stockman will tell you all about life on a sheep station. Tasting the delicious Billy Tea and Damper that the Stockman has cooked fresh for you that morning, you will have your first experience of life as a Stockman. Watching the outback show has many exciting experiences, such as the unique Whip & Boomerang and Duck Show, along with discovering how the working dogs are trained. You will see the working dogs in action, as they muster the sheep into the sheep yards. Immerse yourself in the fascinating live sheep shearing demonstration, before heading back over to the Drovers Camp for a freshly-cooked Aussie BBQ lunch (included in our Premium & Afternoon program). Once you've enjoyed your delicious lunch, try your hand at cracking a whip or throwing a boomerang, or jump on a an optional tractor for a tour of the whole property.
