Gilberton Station is located in North Western Queensland, it is at the southern end of the Etheridge Shire.  Gilberton is owned and occupied by the French family, and has been, in one way or another, for seven generations.  The property is 88 000 acres, 35 600 hectares, 137 square mile or 356 square kilometres.  


The current owners, Rob and Lyn French, have lived on the property for the last 29 years.  Not only have they raised 3 children here, they have also made this a profitable business for themselves.  Rob and Lyn currently reside on the property along with their daughter Kerri-ann, son, Ashley, his wife Camilla and their two children.


Rob and Lyn first allowed prospectors on the mineral rich property over 25 years ago.  In this time they have met many new people and forged many lifelong friendships with visitors to Gilberton.  


From 2016 Ashley and Camilla will continue this tradition by overseeing camping and prospecting on the property.  We look forward to seeing you soon.

This photo has four generations of the French family.  All except for three people in this photo currently live and work on Gilberton Station.
