Skybury Tropical Plantation - Wetherby Station
108 km / 1200 m
Your authentic outback cattle station experience in Far North Queensland Australia
The property is located on the western edge of the Great Dividing Range, North West of Cairns in Far North Queensland. The township of Mount Molloy is 4 kms from the homestead. The Mulligan Highway between Mareeba and Mount Molloy runs north-south through the property.
Since it was established around 1878, Wetherby Station has been renowned for good hospitality in the bushman's unique Australian style. Today, Wetherby continues this tradition of hospitality and a good time.
The restored homestead, gardens and facilities are offered as an authentic outback North Queensland venue for private functions and groups.
Wetherby Station operates as a sustainable beef cattle enterprise in conjunction with the established tourist and ecotourism enterprises. High grade commercial Droughtmaster beef cattle graze improved and natural pastures.
A diverse range of soil types, wetlands, savannah and flora provide a safe haven for many species of mammals, birds, reptiles and insects. In fact visitors marvel at the close presence of Agile Wallabies and birds in the homestead gardens and surrounding pasture land.
