CASUAL & COMFY
Created over a cuppa at smoko in the Pilbara of Western Australia
Smoko is a tradition, custom and a social necessity while out mustering.
If you need to make a plan, repair a break down, pass the time, spell your livestock, you follow some simple rules;
Light a Fire
Boil the Billy
Toast your Sandwich
Fill your Cup
It was at one of these moments some mates thought such a group should be recognised,
SOS idea was born.
Based in the Pilbara of Western Australia
The word "Smoko" is a term used in Australian, New Zealand and Falkland Islands English for a short, often informal break taken during work or military duty, although the term can also be used to describe any short break such as a rest or a coffee or tea break. Among sheep shearers in Australia, "smoko" is a mid-morning break, between breakfast and lunch, in which a light meal may be eaten.
