TPP #004: Working in the Australian Outback on farms and in mines

The Polarizer Podcast #004: Working in the Australian Outback on farms and in mines

About this episode

In this episode I’ll be talking to Nick. He’s a guy I met in Perth, Australia, and he afforded his travels through Australia by working on a farm and later in an iron ore mine in the Outback. We’ll be talking about what’s that like, and what kind of money it’ll make you.

This is a good episode if you’re interested in going to Australia on a working holiday, as it mostly goes into how to make a living in the most popular backpacker’s jobs.

We also discuss buying an old car and doing road trips with it, backpacker life in general, and the area where we were: Perth and Fremantle.

Check out Nick’s photography page on Facebook (NvMFotografie). A lot of long-exposure work, abandoned buildings, and other cool things. I like his creative style.
