Five months in Australia flew past. We didn’t see or do everything, but it would take a lifetime to do that! Here, in pictures, are some of the highlights and a bit of a breakdown of the route we took.
Cooktown, located on Cape York Peninsular, North Queensland, was named after the British explorer Captain James Cook, who became stranded here in 1770 when his boat, The Endeavour, took a bit of a knock from the reef south of Cooktown. Whilst wwoofing our way around Australia we spent three weeks in this little town.
When I was growing up I lived in a small town in the heart of the North Yorkshire country side. It was a beautiful life, playing in fields and walking freely. I had a job all through high school and collage and lived as close to a free life as a school girl probably could. Having my own money meant I could buy anything I wanted (within reason) without really having to ask for permission from my parents. And when I passed my driving test and bought my 1st car, I was away! There was no stopping me. Given this you can imagine the feelings of constriction that wwoofing brought.
