So, I am planning a new cycle tour ... this time around Australia, following the Harvest Trail.

The First Leg - Tasmania to the Snowies:
My bike and my touring gear that I used to cycle around Europe is being shipped from Poland. In the mean time, I want to start fruit picking in the north of Tasmania from the first week of January, 2013. When my bike arrives, hopefully around March 2013, I hope to begin touring Tasmania, cycling from the north of the island to the south, either via the east or west coasts. When I reach the south, I would like to work another two months doing fruit picking before continuing the cycle journey back north to Devonport along the other side of the island to catch the Spirit of Tasmania to Melbourne. From here I want to cycle along the eastern regions of Victoria (Gunai or Gippsland) to reach the snowies for winter 2013 - hopefully to work over the winter.

The Second Leg - The Murray to Adelaide:
From around September or October, 2013 to March or April, 2014.

The Third Leg - The Red Centre to Darwin:
April, 2014 to September, 2014.

Essentially, I want to find people interested in doing any parts of my journey with me or who can give me advice in finding work along the Harvest Trail.

Although my focus is harvest work, I am actively looking for short-term contract roles working in the detention centres around Australia to teach English or to work with health and fitness in these centres. Furthermore, I hope to work in the snow in 2013. Finally, along the way I hope to undergo volunteer or paid work with linguistics and with Indigenous Australian language centres.

If you are keen or know someone who might me, let me know - i.e. send me a message!!!

Just a note: Everytime you edit this, ModBot flags it as potential spam (due to the links and you never having posted before) - I will keep unflagging it, but just so you know what's happening. :)

Great, thank you for that. I have never really posted on a public forum before, but figured that might have been the reason.

Thank you Sander,
