I have a car and am usually looking for passengers if I'm driving a long way. hmu for roadtrip fun:)
I'm just out of university! I'll be in Australia throughout 2020 on WHV.
Currently in Northern NSW with own car and heading north to Queensland for a bit more sun & paid work opportunities now we are (touch wood) more free from covid.
I'm especially interested in getting involved in forestry & conservation, but I'd love to try all kinds of work and am always keen to learn new things
I really enjoy being outdoors all day, regardless of the work & weather. I'm in very good shape for physical work, don't smoke, and will eat just about anything. I love people and animals in equal measure (heaps). In my spare time I'm usually hiking or biking
