The Worlds Longest Golfcourse. Fun On The Range

Last week I stumbled across a real Gem! On my recent break from Internet Marketing I took my family on a casual 2,000 km roundtrip to the Fraser Range Sheep Station. 437,000 Acres of wilderness! Just another Aussie Outback Station… That’s when I found out about the new golfcourse they are building.

Nullarbor Links – The Longest Golf Course In The World

Nullarbor Links Golf Course

Nullarbor Links will be the longest golfcourse in the world when completed in 2009.  It will be 1,365 km long.  This is a fantastic concept for tourism.  People will start in Gold Digging Town Kalgoorlie, Western Australia, then play hole for hole across the Nullarbor Plain, finishing up in Ceduna, South Australia – 1,365 km away!  Fraser Range Station will be hole number 6 along the way.

Golfers will absolutely love this and are bound to travel from all over the globe to play this course.

My estimate would be to allow a casual 5 – 7 days for this exercize, but only if you are on a time constraint! 10 days would be better, allowing for staying overnight after 2 holes of golf. After all, you’ll be traveling a few miles between greens.  This is a real lifestyle enterprise for a golfer.  Even though I’m not a crazy golf addict, I’d give this course a go when it’s ready. Why not, indeed!

Now, I’ll share some of my latest holiday. No more golf… I promise!

Fraser Range Sheep Station – 437,000 Acres

Fraser Range Accomodation

So what did we do on our little holiday? Lots! What a cool place to bring the kids! (OK, I had fun too). Fraser Range Station is 437,000 acres and has a sheep grazing rate of 1 head per 27 acres. That rate would allow me to have 0.8 sheep on my property (where’s that picture of a 3 legged sheep?).

Normally, I drive past that place when I do the 4,600 km roundtrip over to visit my mum in Streaky Bay every year. I don’t mind a long drive. It gives me time to think, relax and bring my mind back to it’s natural state of ‘very little’.

Climbing Tree Dogs And Boys Shenanigans

Tree Climbing DogAs you could imagine, my 2 boys got up to lots of adventure. None the least, teaching their dog to climb trees!  There were no Cats up there, so she jumped down again.

(Disclaimer: My dog is much bigger than this one! He stays home to guard the house while we are on holidays)

The boys found other adventures to entertain them, away from their Nintendo, X-Box and whatever screens they fill their boyhood with.

Target PraticeWhere’s That Waascaly Wabbit?

They really enjoyed this. We located an empty can that needed some serious target practice. My Dad was a bit of a shooting Champion back in his day and it seems the skills haven’t been lost over 2 generations. The boys popped that can every time!

Lucky no Rabbits ran past, hey?

Aussie Kids On A Mission (OK, Station)

Windmill climbingAdventure TimeWe found an old windmill on a drive out in the bush, near an old drovers station. The boys needed to climb it. Why? Because it was ‘climbable’. Reason enough!

Dad! Get a photo of me up here. Mum wont find out” – Not unless she reads Dad’s blog, of course…

But Dads need some adventure too. See, us boys never really grow up. We just grow older…

I Feel The Need. The Need For Speed!

Seans new carTom Cruise, eat your heart out! I found myself a new car to drive. A bit of love was all it needed. I’m not sure about its top speed but I think it does 0-100 in about 2 hours.

It wasn’t Red and it didn’t have a Wireless, but it was cheap!

I decided to drive home in my 4WD for a bit of added comfort. They don’t make cars like they used to, that’s for sure!

Fun On The Range. Local Wildlife

Back on the station, we located the resident Kangaroo Jack that was ‘produced’ by some sheep shearers back in their heyday.

Kangaroo JackOK. That’s enough from me. I hope you don’t mind me sharing a bit of personal life with you. Normally, I write all this stuff about mindset and the law of attraction. This time, you can see what I get up to in normal life, outside of my internet marketing business.

Next week, I have business to do in Hong Kong. I’m thinking about blogging daily while I’m there. Let me know in the comments section if you want an update or 2 from Hong Kong Disney. It could be fun!

This will enable me to partly fulfill a promise I made you back in February 2008: To deliver a message from 3 continents this year. Looks like I might fall just short of that one, but… never say never.

Until next time,

Have a most outstanding day

  1. It is amazing how creative people become in wide open spaces. 🙂

  2. And wide open it is, indeed!

  3. Richard Colum says:

    well done Sean look after and enjoy every minute with your boys.

  4. Yes for sure Sean – you must also inspire us from Hong Kong! Kudos to Sean

  5. love to hear about hongkong disney. we are planning to go there in 2009 during a stopover to europe.
    I have heard it is more for little kids, our boys are 4 and 6. Let me know if this is true, otherwise we might need to do our disneytrip in France at eurodisney. The boys are talking about Disneyland all the time. We went to Eurodisney before we had the children, and absolutely loved it. Very good for the mind!!
    This was just before X-mas and the whole place was lovely decorated and was one big fairlyland.
    Enjoy the rest of your holiday in south australia. Have a safe drive back to Wa.

  6. Hi Sean,
    It’s obvious you and your boys love rural life and why not, there is nothing better for the soul than the freedom it brings with it. Here is an opportunity for an enterprising gentleman like you – Tipperary group of stations 190km south of Darwin is for sale – 926,446Ha (2,289,293Ac). It is featured in the last edition of the Farm Weekly – what a paradise – what a life style.

  7. Sounds good Rob. I might just stay a visitor. Farming is hard work and there’s little or no rest. These guys work their backsides off. I might support them with some free SEO to their websites and visit occasionally.

    Bloody nice countryside though 😉

  8. KC Carlson says:

    Hey Sean, looks like you had an amazing time!!

    Do keep us posted 😀

    KC

  9. I certainly will, KC

  10. What an amazing place you visited! So, did Cherie read your blog and find out the boys were climbing everything in site? I bet it didn’t surprise her one bit 🙂

    I would love to hear your thoughts on Hong Kong Disney. Apparently, there’s a Disney train you can catch a ride on to get there. Let us know how your family is enjoying the trip… I’ll keep an eye out for updates!

  11. Phil browne says:

    HI Sean this is exactly the reason Im going to go full on with this course so I can show the family all the places to see which I would not be able to if I just kept working and making the banks richer.PS Ive just been told by the bank that although my interest rate went down my mortgage payments went up WHY because they forgot to notify me of the changes.Thanks dosnt that give you a real incentive to do the course at full speed.Sorry I strayed from story Phil

  12. Thanks Phil. I hear your story and relate to it very well. Your inspiration will be mine. Cheers!

  13. Hi! Your Post “orlds Longest Golfcourse. Nullarbor Links” is very interesting for me. Unfortunately my written English is not so good so I write in German: Dir, meinem liebsten, geh

  14. Really enjoyed this blog Sean. I would love to hear what you have to say about Hong Kong. Remember to take time to smell the roses or whatever nice smells they have over there. Are Cherie and the boys going?

    Sharon de Bruyns last blog post..Living on $20 a week, it was possible

  15. The boys are coming. Cherie? Hmm, let me think about that! – OK, she can come to 😉

  16. Now thats the way to raise healthy happy and well adjusted kids – where did all the old fashioned fun go…it has been replaced with video games and TV. At least some Aussie kids are out there giving it a go. Good on you Sean!

  17. Hi Sean, that shows that you don’t need any gadgets to have fun and enjoy yourself. And without knowing it it’s healthy for everybody too (don’t tell anyone or the might not want to do it anymore 😉 )

    Hope you had fun in the meantime as well and tried a bit of golf?

  18. Jazz Salinger says:

    Hi Sean,

    This sounds like a lot of fun and it’s certainly a wonderful experience to be able to share it with your sons. There’s nothing like getting away from it all and you can’t get any further than this.

    I love golf and this would be one amazing course to play.

  19. Hi Sean

    Can I do the mushy girl thing and say, awww, cute doggy!!! Very, very cute doggy! Hey – If I didn’t say it, your wife would have got in before me!

  20. Hi Sean

    looks like a lot of fun.

    Did you say a CASUAL 2,000 km drive! Oh that’s right I forgot this is Oz. Just like Brisbane is just up the road (650 km)

    And you Aussies keep coming up with the sheep jokes at our expense? Did you see the quick thinking kiwi reporter with the Aussie cricket coach? Classic. Would make for a classic joke video. By my calcs there is over 16000 sheeps on that station

  21. Hello Sean,

    That sure looked like a lot of fun. So get how the boys wanted to climb the wind mill – and so totally understand about Mum not wanting to know!! Gosh that is one huge golf course, my oldest will be over the moon when its completed (he loves golf). The holiday looked like fun, good to see kids enjoying themselves without electricity 🙂

    Cheers
    Lisa
    PS:- How was your hoiliday in Hong Kong, was it all work and no play or both?

  22. Funny, I just saw you message on Facebook today to say you are driving west from Ceduna today, taking off at 5am. What a coincidence. No doubt as you drive you will be recalling some happy memories, especially as you drive past each golf hole and Fraser Range Station.
    .-= Wal Heinrich´s last blog ..Think And Grow Rich Mindset Mastery =-.

  23. Hi Sean,
    Nice to see you enjoying yourself and being human. The golf course sounds amazing. It must have accommodation along the way obviously. I suppose it would be like a fitness camp with so much walking needed to complete the course.

    The family pics are very nice. I have heard you mentioning Disney in Hong Kong so you all must have had a good time and been impressed by it all. The boys would have some fond memories.

    Lovely little family.
