Everybody knows the Sydney Opera House & Harbour Bridge, Bondi Beach, Uluru, and the Great Barrier Reef. But there are many other places that are just as magnificent that you’ve probably never heard of or, …
The Australian outback is not all flat, endless plains. The countryside is constantly changing – rainforest, floodplains (and drought plains), ‘jump up’ country, rivers, deserts, sand dunes, and red dust are some of the things …

I will not pretend I wasn’t petrified. I was. But mixed in with the awful fear was a glorious feeling of excitement. Most of the really exciting things we do in our lives scare us …
It’s almost the end of the year, so I guess it’s time to reflect on the year past, and look forward to the new year. What did I do and what would I do differently …

I’m getting to the point in planning the trip where I’m starting to think about food.
For those of you who missed it, last time we were at the farm I started practicing cooking with the camp oven. Shall we say, my first efforts wouldn’t get me on a reality television cooking show!

How long does it take you to plan a holiday?
Despite my work background as a planner, in my own life I’m the perennial “non-planner”, at least I thought I was until I met Helen – my Two Sheilas in a Ute travelling companion. She’s so laid back that her first call to me about our first trip started with “Where are we going again?”

Now that my little rant yesterday is over, it’s time to get back to the business at hand. Planning my next trip away.
I can’t believe how fast the time is going. In three weeks we’ll be off again, and I still have so much to do. Not for the trip – that’s the easy bit – but in working out how I’m going to make money while I’m out there.

Have you ever tried internet dating?
I ask because every time I turn on the television it seems I’m bombarded with ads for a certain company that promises to match you up with your soul mate. Apart from the obvious question of how they would be able to come up with a computer program that could find such a person, what happens if your soul mate isn’t signed up to the same company????

For somebody who gets claustrophobic in the M5 tunnel, I’ve done my fair share of exploring deep, dark places. And not all inside myself!
The area between Yass and Wee Jasper has quite a few limestone caves, and there are a couple on the farm. When there’s a lot of water around the caves can be difficult to access, and even if you do get inside exploring can be restricted because of the creeks running through them. So of course now that everything is very dry, we had to go and explore the big cave.
It’s called the big cave to distinguish it from the small cave – we have a unique naming system at the farm.
