    Description

    Start 2022
    We are a busy family of 3. Our daughter is 18 years old.
    We live on 20 acres and own a horse property 20 minutes from Toowoomba. My husband works away and I work in town Monday - Thursday during school term - I am a nurse manager and my husband is an operations manager.
    We own 3 horses and our daughter competes in show jumping. We also have 2 beautiful Labradors, a Jack Russell, 2 cats, chooks and guinea fowl. We run an agistment farm for horses so have a variety of other horses on the property - can be up to 12+ horses here. Every day is different.
    We are well traveled and my father came from Denmark. We love having visitors and people in our home.

    Toowoomba is a beautiful large regional city with approx. 120 000. It is vibrant city with lots to do. From Toowoomba it is easy to get to Brisbane (approx. 1 1/2hrs) and then either the Sunshine or Gold Coast. It is called the Garden City. Is better if you have your own vehicle to travel around and see the sights, however if you are a very experienced and good driver, we will negotiate lending you one of our vehicles for local travel / to go to town. Will happily drop you into the bus in Toowoomba, which travels to many locations. We travel alot with our daughter within Queensland to showjumping competitions, and happy to take you with us to see the sights.
