Working on a Cattle Station in Outback Australia
It happens to the best of us. Part way through your Australia Working Holiday Visa, not missing home and pretty tempted by the idea of staying here another year. That’s three hundred and sixty five extra days of beautiful beaches, epic surf and shrimps on the Barbie. You’d pretty much do anything, right?
Well, you have to earn the right for a second year here in Australia. You need to complete 89 laborious days of work in an agricultural community where you’ll most likely do some tasks you could never have imagined.

I’m a girl. Not just any girl, but a fashion conscious city girl. That’s not to say I don’t love an adventure and I sure as hell don’t mind breaking a nail, but spending my days working on a farm had never been number one on my bucket list.
But something really strange happened. I worked on a cattle station in the dry outback, I chased cows, I learnt to drive a bulldozer, I sheared sheep… and I actually enjoyed it!
