I am a freelance writer and photographer from Sydney who has now had five books published on fishing. I also write for the NSW Fishing Monthly, Visit the Shire, Fisho App & Tackle Tactics.
I also like to travel and experience new things to do.

Back in 2009 Leanne and I went along to the movies to see a film called The Bucket List starring Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman. The main plot follows two terminally ill men (portrayed by Nicholson and Freeman) on their road trip with a wish list of things to do before they "kick the bucket."

It was a brilliant and very funny movie that made me think about what I would put on a bucket list, and no, it was not because I thought that I was going to "kick the bucket".
People who know me would think that most of the things that I would put on my bucket list would be to do with fishing. But after thinking about the things that I would like to do I decided not all of them involved fishing.
So, in no particular order I am going to put together a list of 40 things that I would like to do after watching the movie, The Bucket List. As you will see as you read on there are a number of things on my bucket list that I have already done, but would love to do again.
Maybe you have some other suggestions that I may like to do in the coming years or somewhere you have been that I might think about adding to my bucket list to bring it up to 50 things.
Great Gary - I have completed a few off your bucket list items already - so now I am going to write my own. Did the Darwin thing earlier this year, just got back from Cairns yesterday, off to Uluru tomorrow, next stop is Hawaii before Christmas . . . I'd delete number 12 off your bucket list and replace it with - Go to Tonga and swim with the whales - I did this earlier this year too :O))
No. 29, go to Port Arthur in Tassie and do the ghost tour there. You will kill no. 31 with the same stone.
I suggest that you go to some place exotic and out of the way of the main stream tourist hot spots, e.g. Nepal and take a flight past Mt Everest, Sikkim province in India and Bhutan...... or maybe Antartica.
If not the last one, at least go to the Christchurch Antartic Centre. It is unreal.
