As part of the Oz Bus trip you have to spend a night in Kroombit Cattle Station which is near Biloela. After a long day sitting in a bus from Hervey Bay we then spend more time sat on our bums mustering goats on horseback! The riding was a lot more fun than the bus trip though ;-)
Once the goats were in it was time for the Goat Rodeo - in teams you have to grab the goat; bring it to the edge of the ring and 'brand' it. Unfortunately I couldn't take part as i was nursing an injury from the night before... note to self, don't wander around car parks with bare feet, there may be sharp things waiting to take chunks out of the soles of your feet. So ouchy!
I didn't let the foot stop me from trying the mechanical bull though. I won't say my time as it's not great but was quite a lot better than a lot of the group's. We were all put to shame by Cecile though who works at the station - she did gymnastics on it! Very impressive.
Then early next morning before hopping back on the bus we gave clay-pigeon shooting a go - 4/5 wasn't a bad score but I'm still irked about that one miss! I wanna shoot more stuff!
