COMMENTS FROM SOME OF OUR STUDENTS
"I have traveled the world, and seen many wonderful sights, but nothing compares to the experience i've had here at Leconfield. Thank you so much!"
Julie Hackett, Norway

"This was my 4th Gap Year experience of my round the world trip, and definitely the best. Thanks to all the staff, that made our stay so enjoyable. I learned loads, did loads of work, enjoyed lots of good food, and the company was wonderful. The school was very well run, everyone was very friendly, and we all made a good team. I will definitely recommend this course to all my friends, and direct them to the website. A real Ozzie experience."
Cheers Anita, England

"Thank you for a wonderfull 11 days. The time we spent here was amazing and wonderful. The experience you get here is one-of-a-kind, and we don't regret one single day we spent here. It is amazing how fast we learn riding, we, who never been on a horse before. We hope this school will keep existing, cause it is a definite must for every backpacker that comes to Australia."
Lisa ans Ulrika, Sweden

"Thanks for the great experience, which i'll probably remember for the rest of my life! I had the greatest time here, i enjoyed every single minute of it! Thanks again, please keep it up here, so that many more students can have their own dip into country hospitality, the incredible mountains, life with horses and everything that goes with it! Awesome!"
Ruth, The Netherlands

"It was so funny, and i have learnt so much. Thank you for that. I felt really like a cowgirl/jillaroo in a western movie and i will never forget this time."
Rebecca, Germany

"Thank you so much for the whole two weeks. They flew by before I opened my eyes. I learned heaps and improved on my weaknesses en observed when I could watch and observe. I got a really good taste of the real outback. And the exceptionally big hills. I enjoyed myself and will be recommending the school. I feel like my grandfather and uncles also are stock man (retired). Wonderful food, and of course the desserts!"

"Thank you for the awesome time I had fulfilling a long time dream of learning life as a Jillaroo. At 59 I have had a wonderful time at Leconfield. I have made new friends and furthered my knowledge of life on a farm. A huge thank you to Brian for his hospitality, to Cookie for the great food and to Hilton and Hedges for sharing their knowledge and being such terrific teachers and for the fires that kept us warm in the evenings. My time here can be summed up in one word, AWESOME!!"
Deb McLaughlin, Pola Creek, Australia

"Loved my stay at Leconfield. I met a lot of awesome people and had heaps of fun. I would definitely come back. I ate more food in the 11 days I have been here than I have at home in a month. I'd also like to say that Ned (my horse) is the best! I would like to thank all the staff and Brian for such an awesome experience."
Lisa McLaughlin, Pola Creek, Australia

"LECONFIELD" IS A WORKING PROPERTY. LEARN THE SKILLS AND TECHNIQUES
"Leconfield" is a working property of 4600 acres set in the beautiful hillside country on the Mulla Creek, located in Northern New South Wales, Tamworth region. This property has been in the Skerrett family for well over 100 years. Brian Skerrett, the current owner, wanted to give people a chance to experience life as a Jackaroo or Jillaroo, so he started a training school. The school has been running since 1983, and has given hundreds of people the chance to learn these time honoured and traditional skills.
