I am Peter, 21 years old from Germany. I was on my way around Australia when I came to Birdwood Downs Station. I dropped in with absolutly no expectations, I was just looking around for a new WWOOF...
When I arrived at the station I was a bit shocked and not sure if I would stay. On the first day or two I was just stunned by the lonelyness, but exactly this lonelyness was the thing I really learned to appreciate. After a couple of days I already felt so comfortable with the whole station that I stayed much longer than expected.
It was an absolutly new experience for me and I must say it was one of the best things I experienced so far.
I learned a lot about living on a station and living in an environment that can be so hard and so beautiful at the same time.
I really don't want to miss this time at all.
