Rah Rah and Roos Farming and Travel in the Great Southern Land

Location(s): Australia

Genre(s): Autobiography/Memoirs, Travelogue

Era(s): 2002

Is it time you ditched the office and headed to the outback of Australia for the adventure of a lifetime? In 2002, a young Englishman left London behind to do just that.

One year, 2,000 sheep: 4,000 km travelled. Horses and quad bikes. Two light aircraft: one Ford station wagon. He uncovered real life far from the hustle and bustle of the beaches and coffee shops of the East coast. There were “Skimpies”, surly farmers and tough miners, vets and call-girls. He was ready for the flying lessons, but not quite ready to take a test in a ten-tonne truck, and almost came a cropper in the gold fields in 40 degree heat.

A must-read for anyone following in the finest traditions of travel ‘Down Under’who wants to read travel with a twist
