Bogans Do It Better

Before Micky Blue Eyes and I had the boys we were, of course, seasoned travellers of the most classy kind. Yep, we were jet setting bogans visiting every glamorous destination in the land of Oz.

We have been to every far corner of this vast land, including the delightful Dubbo, Denman (don't ask) and of course, Canberra SO many times because the War Memorial and Parliament House just never get old do they? And if they do there is always porn or explosives at hand as a back up plan. Apparently. I wouldn't know.

We survived the searing heat of Broken Hill in January and visited far away exotic places such as Tasmania. So, without further ado, I present to you the very best bogan holiday snaps, because, truly, bogans do it better.

Bogans doing it better
on Fraser Island
There was our memorable trip to Fraser Island, where we went on a four wheel drive expedition. Micky Blue Eyes was quite keen on the idea, and I was keen on the idea of lazing about the motel reading a book. But he dragged me along. Ironically, I seemed to withstand the rather bumpy ride quite well, while Mick was a tad shaken by the experience. This is the man who considers himself on a par with Bear Gryls. I expect he shouldn't have a problem with drinking his own wee then, should the situation ever arise. I would, however, so I would prefer it if he left me out of his outback treks. I drink enough cask wine that tastes like piss, thanks very much.

Outback Bogan Woman: I scared the dingoes away.
At least all the dingoes roaming about the island did not mess with me. No way. I looked scary.

Then, there was also our memorable trip to Western Australia. While there, we visited Wave Rock and Fremantle. At least, I think it's wave rock. Well, actually, I have no idea. In typical lazy bogan fashion, I've justed shoved the photos in an album and hoped I'd remember where they were taken. Might be, might not be. Who cares? I look like a dick head anyway. which is the real point of publishing these photos.




A bogan at Wave Rock. I think.



I appear to be wearing some sort of ridiculous get up featuring a hat and a shirt that reaches my knees. But then, I have always been a style icon.


Now here I am looking fashionable in Fremantle. So sophisticated. Especially my knee length shirt, which, on closer examination appears to be somewhat see-through. So my knees are chastely covered but you can see my bra and nipples. Classy.

Fashion icon in Fremantle


Whilst in WA we decided to drive way up North to Monkey Mia, where we spent days sitting on a beach waiting for dolphins to arrive. One finally did.

It was worth driving THOUSANDS of kms for
this one shot of a dolphin, right?
So there you have it. I could go on posting photos for days, but I'm sure I've already made you SO jealous. so I had better stop. Bogans just do it better.

Linking up with Kirsty from My Home Truths  for I Must Confess.



What exciting adventures have you been on? Bogans do it better, right?

    1. You're right, I should have gone on posting, but it wouldn't have been fair to make everyone so jealous, would it? Thanks for stopping by. x

  3. I have actually been to all those places, except Monkey Mia! We travelled around Australia in our caravan for 6 months back in 2001 when our kids were little. From Brisbane south to the snow, to Melbourne, across to Tassie, then back on the mainland over to Adelaide, up to Uluru, back down again and across the Nullarbor to WA, explored the south west & got as far as Perth before we ran out of time and had to come home again :-(

    1. That is the sort of trip my Micky Blue Eyes would love to do, but I'm not really keen on 'roughing it'. Hang on, I'm already roughing it in Boganville, arent' I? Hmmmm...

  4. I've been to Canberra (once!) but none of those other places. You're far more travelled than me! This Brisbane bogan has not travelled much but can boast about a once in a lifetime trip overseas. Yep it was a HUGE event in my life when I went on my own on a big OS trip to visit my sister....in Singapore! My honeymoon was at Norfolk Island which I had to have a passport to go to so as far as I'm concerned it was OS too! ;-)

  5. Once is enough. Um, I mean, NEVER enough. *coughs*

    Singapore and Norfolk Island definitely count as os trips. I've only been to Holland with my parents when I was 10 years old, so I must get around to blogging about my memories of that oneday.

    Thanks for reading. x

  6. I have been to none of those places except Fraser! You truly ARE well traveled! I like your travel ensembles, I too err on the side of sun sense when choosing travel fashion. It's all in the we of the beholder!!!!!

    1. It's really a case of having no choice but to cover up when you're a ranga. I cover up, douse myself in 30 plus and STILL get burnt. Sigh. Thanks for reading dude. x

  7. You get around! I'd love to visit those places. Hopefully one day X

    1. We did a lot of these trips before we had kids, which made it a lot easier. I hope you can oneday too. x

    1. Overseas sounds MUCH better than our bogan trips. x

  9. I can't say I've travelled all that much (unfortunately), although I don't know if I would choose dingoes and Fraser Island as a holiday destination! As always, you had me laughing along with your Flashback! Thanks for linking up xx

  10. My travel adventures have been none too exciting lately - seeing as I rarely do any traveling, but I'm going to Colorado in a few weeks and will get to see actual mountains, so maybe I'll have a story to share then. :) Love reading your adventures though... I'll have to come out to Australia one day.

  11. I went to Fraser Island solo almost 15 years ago. I ended up befriending an Israeli dude and getting trashed on sambucca one night. Sweet Jesus - that was a hang over to remember. Classy! It made the hike the next day painful indeed. I also had a misguided fling with the tour guide. Classy! I'd love to go back but not for those reasons. Fraser Island is a very beautiful place and I'm sure Dadabs would would have a great time with the 4WD.

  12. So well travelled! I've only been out of the state once. I mean hell I get excited about a trip to Mackay for heavens sake!

  13. I was reading this at an in opportune moment and you just made me guffaw - so two language classes stopped to see what the noise was - I was walking in a corridor between the 2. Anyway, it is worth driving to see a dolphin and I'm jealous of wave rock. I wanted to go there but haven't...

  14. At least you are a well travelled bogan Ness!
