If I lived in Australia its possible that it would have interested me.
How big is your property altogather?
Are you just looking for a worker?
How much of the property are you going willing to let them texturize and plant?
Whats your climate (rainfall, mintemp, maxtemp, how farm is a big town for supplies)?
What does your property look like, pasture, shrubland, forest, cleared, river, pond?
What direction would you like to see it move in?

lol not feedlot its paddock or better yet rotational paddock.
Feedlot in USA is 8ft by 3ft "prison cell" that cows are sentence to with a bucket of water mixed with grain/food in front of them.
And this is for there entire life. They are hit with growth hormone and medicine practically every other week.
The animals are weak and sick sometimes with visible skin ulcer/diseases but they are killed and sold as prime meat.

Try the Woofing section too. some people see the commune tag and run.
Too long term, too much personal sharing.
And some of the ones that do respond want you to be some type of a spiritual leader.

You could also try a more local permaculture website.
USA>Australia does sound exciting for the traveling person.
