Cobbold Gorge Tours and Village is family owned and operated. It’s located on a working cattle station in the Etheridge Shire, in rural Queensland, which is a 6-hour drive from Cairns or Townsville. Our owners and team are absolutely committed to providing guests with the ultimate outback adventure, showcasing the beauty of the Gorge and surrounding savannah. Due to the climate and access, Cobbold Gorge Tours and Village only operates seasonally, between 1 April (or Easter if earlier) and 31 October annually.

Our team live and work closely together and we like to think of them as being one big family, an approach we expect employees to embrace. Our staff motto is ‘Passion. Purpose. Pride.’ which underpins our approach to our work, our facilities and our guests. Living in a relatively remote area with a small population, open communication and flexibility is essential to success. Every member of our team must respect the personal space of others and support their colleagues.

There are various accommodation options available for staff at Cobbold Village. For those with a caravan or mobile home, there’s a dedicated space with plug in power and water access. Employees without their own accommodation will be provided with a room, where possible. Accommodation is available on a first in best dressed basis and is at the discretion of management. A staff amenities block is provided, which is for staff only. You will be responsible for cleaning your own space and keeping it tidy.
