Before the Coffee

Cooper Downs, Australia

Filed under: Australia — beforethecoffee @ 11:46 am

About 90% of the people in Australia live near the coast. The outback is hot and dry and is less than paradise. This is Jesse and he’s making a go of the outback lifestyle. His dad and mom did it and he’s following in their footsteps. They have a cattle ranch but are very open to visitors. What a great place to get the outback experience. Scattered around the property are antiques that blew me away. Here are some antiques on the porch of one of the bunk houses. The bar was a cool set up with all visitors writing their name on the wall. 






  1. Without a doubt, three very amazing photographs. They each tell a lot about the lives of the people there.

    I love the portrait. I think, “That handsome young man would set the world’s women swooning if he were on the big screen” but he lives this rough and ready, remote life out there.
