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 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
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
As 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.
Where’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)
We 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!
Tom 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.
OK. 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
