What to do in the Aussie Outback

Our first outback stint was on a cattle station. Over 150kms to the nearest grocery store but maybe 30kms to the famous Mckinlay bar where they filmed the Crocodile Dundee Movies. The owner had 2 farms, 1 for him and 1 for us. We had a little house with a big screened in veranda that over looked … Continue reading What to do in the Aussie Outback

Aussie Outback here we come

After our short time eating free and cheap fruits and veggies in the campgrounds of Childers we found a job via the internet site Travelers at work or TAW.com.

Unfortunatly we didn’t make enough selling feather earrings on the footpath to subsidise our whole trip. So off to Brisbane we went … Continue reading Brisbane the land of Sunsets

Like a fine red wine: Welcome to Yabby Lake Vineyard

After our Great Ocean Road stint we had a job lined up to work at the Yabby Lake Vineyard on the Mornington Peninsula, Victoria. While back in Canada my sister in-law introduced us to a wonderful Australian wine, Cooralook, and I thought it would be fun to get a job on the winery that made … Continue reading Like a fine red wine: Welcome to Yabby Lake Vineyard

Is this life worth the money?

I need to figure out what I want. We are on our second year visa in Australia right now and we have until March here (approx. 7months). While we are here do I want to live the “free” life, moving around from job to job, having a good time with no bills and responsibilities or … Continue reading Is this life worth the money?

Generosity

People can be so giving During our Australian travels we have been quite surprised by the giving nature of people.  Maybe it’s an Australian thing or maybe it’s because we have “funny” accents and people can tell we’re not from around here, but people have been so generous to us.   If we have ever really … Continue reading Generosity
