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…

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…

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…

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…

An Aussie Hog Roast

So two new backpackers arrived on the farm; Kieren, 21 from London and Bryan, 23 from Manchester.  They had it easy, one day picking, a day off and then another day picking (all on big juicy beans). However, Bryan couldn’t hack it and quit after two days. So we sent him on his way the…

Chicken Salt Chips

If you’ve ever been to Australia you will have definitely tried chicken salt chips, and if you haven’t – you have missed out!!!  Occasionally, if we’ve done really well, the wee babe Ellie will treat us to $10 worth of chips.  We had worked especially hard this week; it was a second pick, so not…

Rainbow Beach 

We had worked a pretty full on few days and we’re rewarded with a day off! It got even better because Sandi and Dave took us to Rainbow Beach.  We set off in the morning in separate cars and headed to the beach.  Connor, Lucy and I went with Sandi and her mum; we also…

A Vegan Feast

Another newbie arrived, this time it was a female WWOOFer from England called Hannah. She wasn’t being paid to work on the farm, instead she was fed by Sandi and Dave; whilst also learning about organic farming.  Hannah added something different to the group as she was vegan, so I picked her brains on what…

Turning a Quarter of a Century 

It’s official, I’m now an adult. On the 23rd of May I turned 25 and realised I’m no longer in my ‘early twenties’. But, who cares?! I have no plans of getting preggers, investing in a house or getting hitched. I’m more than happy to be spending my birthday on a farm in Australia.  The…
