We are Susie and Peter and we moved to Tasmania in 2017 to buy our property and start the next chapter of our book of life.
We had always lived in Queensland but made the move to this beautiful island which we love. Our property is a 5 bedroom house which sits high on a hill on 20 acres, 8 hectares, with views forever.
We are very close to the famous Cradle Mountian where there are lots of great walking tracks and incredible views and unique wildlife.
We absolutley love the natural environment and being avid animal lovers we just love the gorgeous little creatures that visit our yard. By day we can often have echnidnas, black cocktoos, plus a whole array of other birds. Then by night we can go for a walk with the torch, flashlight, and see so many pademelons which look like tiny kangaroos, possums and if we are liucky we could get a visit from the Quoll or Tasmanian Devils.
We have no farm animals of our own but our neighbour brings his sheep over to our paddocks to graze. We would love to have some chickens one day when the yard and gardens are all done.
We have been renovating the inside of the house but now are about to start on the outside projects such as Gardens, landscaping and a few building projects too.

We would love to show you our beautiful part of this amazing planet while you are living an Aussie way of life for a while.
Its natural beauty and unique wildlife. We could introduce you to a wandering wombat or see the milky way in the night sky . Perhaps even be lucky enough to see the Aurora Australis which is truly amazing. We can teach each other about our countries, cultures or meals that we share . Perhaps we can even teach you some Aussie Slang words that all our previous workers always wanted to hear and use...its very funny!!! Of course you can try and teach us some of yours..even funnier!!!
Hopefully by the time you leave we have enriched your life and understanding of the nature of this place or at least your knowledge of this wonderful land..Tasmania.
Now that the inside of the house is mostly renovated, we are ready to start with the outside areas, where we would like to create a vegetable garden, some outdoor structures and pathways
While Peter does a lot of the work outside himself he could do with a hand with the bigger projects such as building and digging. We are hoping to make a rustic Meditteranian style bar b que area with a pergola, Got any great ideas?? a fire pit area, and vegetable garden where we hope to produce our own vegies. Perhaps you might be great gardeners that can show us a thing or two.
Susie has a bad shoulder that doesn't let her raise her arm very high and sometimes cleaning and reaching can be a problem. So some help for her would be wonderful.
Perhaps you might love cooking and can want to make us your favourite dishes
Your accomodtion is a bedroom in our house. All your linen and towels are supplied. The room has a queen size bed so a couple would be welcome. As there is only the 2 of us with our own ensuite, you would then have use of the main bathroom and toilet for yourself.. There is a lounge room with big screen tv and dvd player that upstairs and another lounge room downstairs if you want peace and quiet away from the tv. Of course we would all eat togeher and share stories or maybe a glass of wine.
