Our Favourite Staff Members: The Station Dogs

15 01 2024

Everyone loves a four-legged, furry friend! Rawnsley Park is home to three dogs, each with a personality of their own. Here's an introduction to each of our buddies. 


Vader, our farm dog, is an Australian kelpie. Vader loves to try his best at rounding up our sheep, but would sometimes rather leave his job to go for a swim in the dam instead. You can know if Vader is close by his loud footsteps or by hearing Station owner, Tony’s repetitive shouting of “VADER!”. Vader’s favourite place on Rawnsley Park Station is hanging out by the backdoor of the Woolshed Restaurant hoping for treats, out in the paddocks or on the back on Tony’s quad bike. 



Pablo is a pug x jack russell terrier, and belongs to Rawnsley Park owners Julie and Tony. Pablo came to the station in May 2021 and has made a name for himself ever since. He can be quite mischievous with his favourite activities being: digging up Julie’s garden; pulling on his lead during walks; and chasing after Vader. 



Monty is a jack russell terrier, and makes up the other half Tony and Julie’s duo. Monty is more responsible than Pablo, but is a bit more fussy. Monty has a dislike for the following things: cattle grids, puddles, emus, bushes and Pablo. However, Monty is also very affectionate to Rawnsley Park Staff, and loves a good pat when given the chance. 



We love to show off our station dogs, but we kindly ask that if you spot them on the station, ask the owner if it's okay before petting them
