Hi Mike! No, blue jeans and bogan shirts seem to be the norm. The dogs come in a big variety of colours.

These are fantastic photos, it's no wonder Mr.Fares never named any of these after himself. I'd expect him to name them after his mother-in-law!!.
Do the minders (stockmen),wear drizabones, akubras and have blue healers.
