Vegetable Patch

Our vegetable patch needs to be cared for and maintained daily. Recently we have seen the benefits of what we have planted. Carrots and cucumbers have been plentiful and you can enjoy our homegrown goodness when you visit.

Sheep Shearing

Our sheep were due for a hair cut so we arranged for a shearer to come out and give them a shear. The shearing shed was a hype of activity and we had lots of helpers. Our staff were busy collecting the wool, throwing the fleece on the table and classing the wool.

The sheep are all set for the year with their new look.


What is a woofer you ask? WOOF stands for Willing Workers on Organic Farm. We have had many overseas tourists working on our property. It gives them a chance to learn about Australia through a cultural exchange program. We have enjoyed having them stay with us and they are getting a taste of the real Australia!

We recently had a new addition to the Boshack clan. A calf was born and I can report that he is fit and healthy.

Passed Thru Fire Experience

Boshack Outback was the first Australian venue to host Passed Thru Fire Experience. This is a Christ centred organisation which focuses on re-uniting of families through the hearts of Men, Fathers, Sons and Boys.

Passed Thru Fire originated in South Africa and the idea came from the book “The Passed Thru Fire Experience” written by Rick Bundshuh. Ric attended this first camp in Australia. The first event was hosted in a small community game farm in South Africa with 7 boys and 5 dads attending. Over the years it has grown to focus not only on Boys entering their teenage year but also those leaving school and young men discovering their place in the world as Men.

Recently Boshack Outback hosted a 3 day camp for fathers so they can bond with their sons. It is a time for the fathers to be removed from their normal lives, outside pressures and focus only on their relationship with their sons.

The boys learnt how to take care of themselves and how to survive in the world. Learnt simple tasks like changing a tyre. Teaching skills that will make him more effective in daily life and build confidence.

Animal husbandry was also another skill the boys mastered. Taking care of farm animals and learning about breeding. The boys also spent a night in the bush. If things should go wrong in the bush it is important to learn bush survival skills.

The boys also had a discussion about respect for girls and the vital role they play. Never forget that your reputation is part of your character, make yourself proud.

The bonding process was for 13-14 year old boys. The boys with their fathers were shown and given opportunities to take them past the step of being a child. Over the weekend there were lots of challenges for everyone to complete. Focusing on physical strength, mental strength and building trust.

It was a successful weekend with the fathers and sons bonding and we noticed a definite relationship improvement. The boys showed a lot of courage on the camp while they were completing the activities.

Boshack Outback was honoured to be the first people in Australia to host this event.
