Ranching holiday as seen in The Sunday Times Travel Magazine

Ever thought about being a real-life Jackaroo or Jillaroo? That’s basically a cowboy or cowgirl if you didn’t know…

GoLearnTo’s seven day ranching holiday in New South Wales, Australia is featured in The Sunday Times Travel Magazine’s article “Skills with thrills”, by Poppy Helm.

After a week on the farm, you will ride horses the Aussie way and the memories of your unique holiday will stay with you for a long, long time…

Here’s what Poppy Helm says:

The Macho One: Ranching

Where: Bingara, southeast Australia

What: Saddle up in rugged New South Wales and become a real-life cowperson. You’ll learn to crack a whip, muster cattle, swim with horses – and, of course, enjoy home-cooked stews by the campfire. And if you’re really good and want to take it further, staff will give you a reference.

Get me there: GoLearnTo.com ( 0208 144 5990, www.golearnto.com) has a seven-day course from £618pp , including meals and accommodation. Malaysia Airlines (0871 423 9090, www.malaysiaairlines.com) flies Heathrow to Sydney from £1.000 return.
