  • Description


    We are Caz and Andrew (and Portia and Hermione if you count our two cats). We live on 10 beautiful acres of pasture land in the Huon Valley. The Huon Valley is only 45 minutes from Hobart centre, but feels like true countryside.

    We have newly moved to area and have just finished building our dream home. Our main project now is working on establishing our Caz's ornamental garden, collecting eggs from our 15 chickens and helping Andrew with his new tractor!

    When we aren't at home in the garden, we both work as full time nurses in Hobart. Andrew loves cooking and would enjoy sharing the kitchen and meals with any guests.
