A bit bogged?

Take a load off with Bogged Brakes, a getaway to help rural blokes get unstuck.

Know a mate that needs a break?

Put on the brakes, and take a break.
Because a tractor’s only good if it stops to refuel every now and then.

We know how hard you fellas work and often don't take any downtime to empty your bucket.

Run by Are You Bogged Mate?, Bogged Brakes is a short getaway specifically designed for rural blokes to take a load off and unwind.

Are you and your mate eligible? Applicants must be:

  • A bloke
  • 18+ years old 
  • Live and/or work in a rural area. Truckie, FIFO or DIDO worker? This means you too!
  • Be fit enough to walk a couple of kilometres and climb a couple of stairs. You don’t have to be an athlete! 

If you’re not sure if you meet the criteria, just get in touch and we'll help you out.

Unwind from the grind and make mates by the campfire

With a Bogged Brakes break, you and a mate can enjoy accommodation, food and a range of fun activities and adventures on the house.

It’s an opportunity for you to get away, relax, make friends, build connections, and develop skills to un-bog yourself and others.

So, if you're feeling a bit bogged down, this is a chance for you (plus a mate, if you like) to be part of an awesome weekend away.

Keep the cogs turning while you're away

Because the chores don't magically stop when you do, we've partnered with Farm Sitters Australia to help connect rural blokes with reliable folks who can keep things running while you're away.
