WHAT WILL I BE DOING?
monday: meet your group
Our Frontier representative in Sydney will explain everything you need to know and organise your bank card, tax file number and your mobile SIM. Then we’ll take a guided walking tour of Sydney including Circular Quay, Sydney Harbour Bridge, The Opera House and the Botanical Gardens. Make sure you bring your camera - there are loads of photo opportunities along the way! Meet the whole group that evening for our welcome dinner, with dinner and a drink on us!
tuesday: info session & harbour cruise
Meet at the tour rendezvous point for a comprehensive work and travel information session. We'll explain everything you need to know about working and travelling around Australia - the team will be available to answer all your questions!
After the info session we’ll take a cruise of the stunning Sydney Harbour on our catamaran and check out the sights including Darling Harbour, Sydney Harbour Bridge, Sydney Opera House, Fort Dennison, Luna Park and Watson’s Bay. Spend the rest of the day cruising, swimming and chilling along the beautiful Sydney Harbour!
Today we’ll depart the city for 3 days and 2 nights at our brilliant basecamp, located just north of Sydney. The area is famous for its stunning beaches, amazing sand dunes and abundance of Aussie wildlife including dolphins, whales, koalas, echidnas and possums. The Basecamp is just 5 minutes walk to the beach and home to Josie, a tame kangaroo who lives on the property. Check out the beautiful beach and have a swim before we enjoy pizzas for dinner!
We’ll start the day thrill seeking by jumping in our 4WD to ride the highest dunes to try sand-boarding! Once the adrenaline rush subsides, we’ll take a guided bush walk to our favourite lookout - enjoy stunning scenery and breathtaking views and the chance to see koalas in the treetops and migrating whales (May through November).
Tonight we’ll enjoy a delicious BBQ dinner and drinks around the campfire.
friday: dolphin cruise
An amazing dolphin watching cruise awaits you today! Get up close to wild bottlenose dolphins, relax on deck or ride in the boom net while dolphins swim underneath you, while there’s also a chance to see turtles and whales. Afterwards we’ll grab some food before heading back to Sydney, where you can spend the rest of the day at your leisure.
saturday: party night
Get dressed up for a fun night on the town Aussie style! Meet up at one of our favourite party bars before jumping on our Sydney Pub Crawl. We’ll visit 4 bars in the city and receive a free drink at each one!
sunday: beach day
On your last day we’ll take a tour along Sydney’s beautiful cliff-top coastline, from Coogee to Bondi, checking out six stunning beaches along the way. It’s the perfect way to unwind after an awesome first week in Sydney!
Your second week will be spent on the farm. You will travel by coach to the Frontier farm in outback New South Wales for a week of agricultural training. Your training will be over 6 days where you will learn and practice the following farm skills:
• Horse riding and handling
• Cattle mustering, lassoing and stock work
• Sheep shearing
Assistance with farm jobs upon completion.
This course is the perfect introduction into live and work on an Aussie farm. Most farm jobs include meals and accommodation and you can expect to earn $200-$500/w after tax and accommodation. Jobs are available in any of the following areas:
• General farm hand
• Mustering on horseback
• Cooks and nannies on stock camps
• Working with polo cross horses

This course can be very rewarding, as long as you are prepared to take on lots of hard work and long days in the heat, dust and the dirt!
