Ureisha Hughes

Ureisha and husband Bristow certainly have their hands full as graziers running 9,000 Wagyu and Wagyu cross cows on 35,000 hectares and raising three young children, Brialie (6), Archie (4) and Elvie (19 months), with a fourth baby due in March 2022.

The couple have managed Strathalbyn Station for the Wentworth Cattle Company since 2015 and with the Burdekin River on their doorstep, the family love fishing and camp drafting in their spare time.

“We live in the best of both worlds, isolated in a rural country setting with a sense of community but have access to what the Whitsunday Region has to offer.” - Ureisha
