Having mistakenly watched the film Wolf Creek (I’m really not one for a scary/gory film), the idea of the outback scared me a little bit.
If you’re planning a trip to the outback any time soon I strongly suggest not watching this film! Fortunately, our journey was just great fun!
We stayed at a little ranch and were greeted with the offer of chowing down on some Mystery Meat. Not being one to shy away from things I happily accepted to try it. It was pretty darn good.
Later on it was revealed our ‘Mystery Meat’ had been goat!
After a delicious BBQ (not just the goat), we got down to learning how to crack whips. Accompanied by some drinks of course.
Of course no ranch visit is complete without a go on a rodeo bull! I quickly realised I had completely underestimated how difficult it is…
The next day we took the opportunity to get to know some of the ranch residents. Hopping on the back of a very stubborn horse we headed off to help round up some goats.
Once this was done it was time to test our lasso skills! Mine were severely lacking. I may be a country girl but I’m not quite a farm girl!
This little girl lived on the ranch and was a great shooter!
Heading to 1770/Agnes Water
Having had a great day on the ranch it was time to move further up coast. Our next stop was the town of 1770/Agnes Water where I turned Biker Chick.
We had learnt from other backpackers along route that the reason to stop here was to take part in a Scooterroo tour.
I donned my leather jacket, fake tattoos and helmet and rode the motor in style. Once I had learnt how to turn corners, I had a blast.
The journey takes you to a great harbour spot where some food is waiting for you. Then, you head back to camp. I would thoroughly recommend this to anyone!
After a fantastic three weeks I had fallen even deeper in love with Australia but the best was still to come!
