McCoys Well Station



We are Jumbuck–one of Australia’s largest sheep and cattle producers, with properties across Australia. We have a broad range of jobs for station workers, and a passion for supporting our staff to develop their careers within the pastoral industry.​

Established in 1888, the MacLachlan family begun growing wool at Paratoo Station, near Yunta, South Australia.

We are a proud, family-run and wholly Australian-owned business, producing natural and sustainable livestock and wool to Australia and the world.

It’s our love of the land, pride in our people and care for our livestock that defines us. Our properties and staff are diverse and we hold a strong commitment to sound livestock and land care management.

Current employment opportunities vary, but a love of the Australian outback and its lifestyle, a sense of adventure, the reward that comes from overcoming a challenge and the ability to forge lifelong friendships are a must.
