Product description

Product Description

Julia is granted a working holiday visa and heads to Australia. Never one to do things quietly, she tours the country via a jumble of hostels, road trips and randomness, indulging in more than her fair share of debauchery along the way. She attempts and fails to learn to surf, attends her very first festival and explores the open minded village of Nimbin.

Intoxicated both literally and metaphorically by the backpacker lifestyle, Julia decides to extend her visa. However, there’s a catch. To be eligible she must complete 88 days of farm work. To console herself she purchases a small car (which turns out to be totally impractical for cross country drives) and decides to spread the work over the course of her trip. A dairy, cattle station and a hippy commune are all on the list and the hazardous results are hilariously entertaining, as the city girl takes on rural tasks.

Back on the road she continues to unearth the history, culture and people of Australia. Through the dust of the desert she fossicks for sapphires; in the subtropical north man eating crocodiles leap from murky waters, and off the East Coast giant fish chase her across the Reef.

Julia boldly takes uncalculated risks in the name of adventure and is not afraid to look stupid doing so. From bagging bananas and branding cattle, to animal attacks and outback disaster, it’s an authentic Aussie experience which will change her life forever.

"From the big cities of Sydney and Melbourne, to the Great Barrier Reef, Whitsundays and Fraser Island; this girl knows no limit to reckless adventure. Couch surfing, hitch-hiking, sailing and four wheel drive action, its all there, alongside drunken mishaps and states of lust and inebriation to which we can all relate. Julia travels the Australian backpacker path in her own unique style."

CAUTION CONTAINS ADULT CONTENT:'Tell all' means just that!

About the Author

Julia loves to travel, explore and shock. While on the road she lives in the moment, soaking up every second with intense (and often highly intoxicated) passion.

Julia set out to write a 'tell all' true story of backpacker life Down Under, with all the naughty bits left in (she is still coming to terms with the fact that her Grandmother has read every detail)! She hopes that 'Kangaroos and Chaos', will inspire budding backpackers, take ex-travellers on a trip down memory lane and entertain anyone who enjoys a giggle and a gasp as they read.

For Julia, the pleasure of writing a book comes from contact with her readers. Feedback, comments and random thoughts from across the world put an instant smile into her day. She encourages you to simply say hello, share an opinion/ story, leave a review, or request/ browse pictures from her trip and chaotic life in general.
