The Australian government are very cheeky. They know that their country is beautiful, full of opportunity, kangaroos and beaches. They know that when you stay here a little while that it becomes increasingly difficult to leave. So if you want to extend your working holiday visa for another year they have made it compulsory to complete 3 months agricultural work in a rural postcode. Sneaky Australia.
So here we are. We have moved onto a farm in Western Australia and settled into our day-to-day routine. We work until the afternoon on a bigger farm (more on that soon) but live and potter about on this lovely organic small holding.
JUST LOOK AT THEM AND THE COWS BEING BFFS!
The bloody geese.
Apart from the possessed geese, living on a farmstay is pretty sweet. We gather veg from the vegetable garden, collect eggs from the hens and spend warm days swinging in the hammock.The work on the bigger farm is a whole different story, and one I will be sharing with you soon.
