Duncan and Jess Barber are the hosts for this very special International tourism experience, seen above in the shearing shed, where their raref lock of extra fine merino sheep provide the finest grade fleeces for export.

For the international tourist, Coliban Park has it all, Up close and personal on this working sheep station of almost 10,000 acres, inbound guests are greeted with tea and cake in the formal sitting room of the historic homestead with welcoming chats with the Barber family. Then it’s off for a one on one sheep shearing demonstration and simply stunning wild kangaroo experience. Then a gourmet lunch in the homestead and perhaps some more kangaroo spotting form the helicopter before heading back to Melbourne. It’s unique, very Australian and it’s the real thing, this is more than a tourism visit, this is making new friends in a classic Australian setting.

Real life hard working sheep dogs at Coliban Park are a delight to watch.
