If  you were interested in seeing what Oyster participants get up to during their farm training week in Australia, then check out this photo blog with lots of fantastic new images.

During the farm training course, you will take part in horse riding, dirt-biking, using a chainsaw, operating a tractor, fencing and working with cattle in the yards.

This week will ensure that you will hit the ground running for your paid job thereafter. There’s lots of safety training and it’s also a lot of fun!
