    Description

    We are a busy family of 4 living on a beautiful rural property on the far south coast of NSW. Mum is a midwife with a private clinic and young folk go to school and work in the neighboring towns (mum & 3 kids 2- 2 kids home 1/2 time, 1 young adult working). Our property is approximately 120 acres of bush and looks out to the ocean and into the Mimosa Rock national park. We have a lot of native animals - kangaroos, wombats, echidna, diamond pythons etc and also some family pets and farm like animals. Dogs, horse, chooks and ducks. We have vegetarians in our house but eat a variety of foods and try to grow some food also. We like to go to the beach, swim, surf, play music and eat. We are an open hearted, friendly and environmentally aware Australian family.

    We are an LGBTQI safe home and we welcome diversity and non-gender conforming people into our lives.
