As a student or researcher, there's so much to discover in the Queensland outback at Fletcherview.


The station hugs a 2.5 kilometre length of the Burdekin River, one of the largest river systems in Queensland. You will also find three major creek systems (Lolworth Creek, Pandanus Creek and Hann Creek) on the property to analyse and explore.


Our accommodation block can sleep 12 people at one time. The self-contained accommodation block has:

  • five rooms with two bunks each, and one double room
  • internet connectivity and WiFi
  • kitchen
  • laundry
  • common area
  • shared bathroom facilities


We offer quality, industry-standard livestock handling facilities for weighing, scanning and collecting samples.

The yards are designed for the optimal student learning experience and for ease of conducting research. We can easily demonstrate our procedures and processes to classes, groups and visitors. We've also ensured that mains power supply is connected to our stockyards for running electrical equipment.

Small paddocks in close proximity to the yards allow for intensive studies when livestock need to be handled or monitored regularly. These paddocks are used for pasture improvement research when specific areas need to be resting or when grazing actively needs to be monitored.

We have 3G and 4G phone coverage to 90% of the property, allowing remote sensors and equipment to transmit data to the Internet.
