We Barry & Kathy are retired and live on 2.5 acres near Maryborough in Queensland. We busy ourselves from day to day caring for our house and garden and maintaining our property. We both have an interest in meeting and enjoying the company of visitors. I originally came from Switzerland in 1982 and Barry is a real Aussie bloke. I speak German Swiss and some French and Italian . We both have an interest in our environment and the local area and would enjoy being able to show any visitors around the area. We both enjoy cooking and gardening and feel that any visitor would go away with a happy and enjoyable experience. We would be happy to welcome any visitor from any part of the World but we feel only a week or two would be enough each time.
