Viata din fermele australiene reprezinta un subiect obisnuit in pictura lui Roberts. Roberts a iubit această temă deoarece aceasta activitate a fost principala  ocupatie a oamenilor obişnuiţi din Australia. Pictorul a realizat multe picturi care descriau oamenii de la ferme in activitatile lor normale. Multe imagini cu  staulele de forfecare a lânii, negustorii de vite, oamenii care defriseaza paduri sunt temele preponderente ale lui Roberts.


Eng. Roberts loved rural themes because it valued the work of ordinary Australian people. He made many other paintings showing country people working, with a similar image of the shearing sheds in The Golden Fleece, a drover racing after sheep breaking away from the flock in A break away!, and with men chopping trees in Wood splitters.
Multe dintre picturile Roberts au fost peisaje sau idei realizate pe pânze mici, pe care el a făcut foarte repede, cum ar fi exponatele sale de la celebra „9 by 5 Impression Exhibition” din Melbourne – „9 by 5”, referindu-se la marimea in centimetri a capacelor cutiilor de trabucuri, marimea la care de cele mai multe picturi au fost realizate. Multe dintre subiecte impartasesc teme anecdotice şi umoristice , arătând sensul umorului pentru care era vestit pictorul.

Eng. Many of Roberts’ paintings were landscapes or ideas done on small canvases that he did very quickly, such as his exhibits at the famous „9 by 5 Impression Exhibition” in Melbourne, „9 by 5” referring to the size in inches of the cigar box lids which most of the paintings were done on. Roberts had more works on display in this exhibition than anyone else. Many of the paintings had humorous touches and anecdotes, showing Roberts’ sense of humor.
