    We are a family of 3 living one hour from Melbourne. Currently working from home (since March 2020) and enjoying a relaxed country lifestyle. We're friendly and easy to get along with. We have a rural property around 2 hectares, with 2 alpacas, about 30 chickens and 2 crazy cats. Lots of kangaroos, birds and other wildlife. Great sunsets. Good outdoor living spaces.
