Yes, it is a real place!

We are currently living on Kangaroo Island, just a forty five minute ferry away from the mainland of South Australia. We were lucky enough to find paid work here on an abalone farm which counts towards our second year visa. If you don’t know, to be able to stay a second year in Australia on a working holiday visa, you have to do 88 days rural work to show you are contributing to Australia in a beneficial way. I had no idea what abalone was when I originally accepted the job but we took a chance and it has turned out swimmingly.
