While we do not consider that we are geographically isolated, social life in the bush can be limited.  The Tutor may need to be willing to seek some entertainment/social life away from the property.  It is not a requirement but the Tutor is encouraged to get away on some weekends. Tibooburra has two pubs which is 50kms away and Milparinka Hotel 13km away. During the cooler months we try to participate in some horse sporting events. Tutors are welcome to come along.  If the family is attending a function or social event we will endeavour to include the Tutor where possible.
