Working on a cattle station

This programme was really tough but so rewarding. The training is really fun and you get to meet loads of people - most of my group was from the UK, Germany and Denmark. When I got to my job I learnt so much about cattle and improved my horse riding skills no end. Be prepared, it's hot, dusty and the hours are long- the food is basic and the cattle can be rough and sometimes dangerous! I got to save all my wages because there was nothing to spend them on. It was a great way to allow me to travel to Sydney, Alice Springs and go diving in the Great Barrier reef afterwards.The only problem was that I didn't want to leave- i'm coming back next year to visit my employers.
