The Road to Alice Springs

So this trip happened weeks ago but I’ve had a manic time since then, so now I can finally document my trip! Tash, Ben and myself packed up and set into the centre of Adelaide to get picked up by our tour. It was 6am, rainy and so cold; we were more than ready to…

Adelaide

We arrived in another city! This time we ended up in Adelaide, all the way in South Australia. It was time to say goodbye to our campervan, it was very a emotional and stressful time as cleaning it was a massive task (not to mention the rude Aussie bloke saying if we broke his equipment…

Port Lincoln

After a long fourteen hour drive (for Ben) we finally arrived in Port Lincoln! We stayed in a free campsite for the night, that did ask for a $10 donation. However, as we had to leave very early in the morning, we didn’t see much point. Karma did find its way back to us for…

The Great Ocean Road

So I left the farm all teary eyed and flew to Melbourne. I stayed in an Air BnB and woke up fresh the next morning; ready to start my next adventure. I got an Uber to the campervan rental place and met my road trip buddies; who were none other than good old Tash and…

It’s Not Goodbye, It’s I’ll See You Soon

The dreaded last day on the farm was looming over me and I was trying my best to not think about it.  We finished picking a couple of days before I was meant to leave; it was very bittersweet. I kinda didn’t want to stop picking, now that I had gotten good at it!  We…

Strawberry Picking on our Lunch Break 🍓

Today was a bit of a disaster; we were all woken up at 6.30am by a very bashful Ellie; she may had forgotten to tell us we were picking, so instead we got drunk and stayed up so late the night before.  The whole group were rough AF and exhausted, PLUS the beans were absolutely…

France and America Have Invaded!

Kira, Kieren and I had gotten used to being the three best friends that anyone could have; along with Salty, Sugar and Spice too. However, things were about to change as we were notified that three new pickers were arriving.  First up we had Brice and Saskia a 25 year old French couple and then…

Animal Farm 🐰🐥

Don’t let the title fool you; this story has a happy ending!  It was an average day on the patch; Kieren, Kira, Andrew and I were all picking away. Ellie then pulls up on her tractor and walks over to us. Our immediate thought was we had done something wrong, but no it was one…

Farewell Trip to Hervey Bay 

So the time had come when our wee group had time to part ways… Lucy and Connor were the first to leave us; wee had a final love island session in the tv room and had a tearful/sleepy goodbye at 5am the next day. They’re now in Sydney, living it up in the city with…

The Best Day Off Yet

I can fairly say that my team and I have had some of the best days off, since doing farm work but today made it to the top of the list.  So without further ado, let’s get to it! The crew set their alarms and were all up by 7am. We loaded the cars and…

Night Out In Noosa

The group of us were gagging for a day off, it was crazy. From shit beans, to weeds, to management changes, to arguments; we knew we had to leave.  Finally, our lucky day arrived and we were off to Noosa. The usual six of us were ready to go, plus two new additions: Kira, a…

Camp Fire Cooking

After another tough few days on the farm; days off been stripped, a whole patch of mouldy beans and being made to weed out of control weeds, the group were working hard together to raise each other’s spirits.  So Kieren got a fire going in our camp area and we decided to do some outdoors…
