  • Description


    Hi my name is Emma, I am a lover of the outdoors, hiking, riding, snow boarding, kayaking, nutrient dense food, yoga and live music. I have a 20 acre property on the beautiful North West Bay River which I am developing into a nature based retreat centre. Currently I'm working on landscaping, developing the food garden and the building design. I live here with my 3 daughters (50% of the time) and my brother Zach and his parent Sara live next door in the cottage. We are located 20 mins south of Hobart. We also share the property with ducks and chickens.
