6. FIND YOUR INNER COWGIRL AT AN OUTBACK CATTLE STATION
You got up at sunrise, donned your faded jeans and your akubra and returned home at sunset covered in dust from the day’s yakka. Translation? You have just experienced a hard day out working in an outback cattle station. (Akubra is a traditional hat and yakka is work). A working holiday on an cattle station really is work, with a capital w, but if you think you’d prefer a gentle experience there are stations that provide guest accommodation so you can still enjoy the glory that is the outback: You might stay in a room in the old shearer’s quarters and get taken out to a bush camp.
