I enjoy the company of others especially people passing through from other countries. I have recently relocated to a coastal area and live in a beautiful residential location with farm lands on both sides of the surrounding area. I am presently renovation the property, so need help with gardens and pet minding while I’m away on short trips, in turn I provide accommodation and meals while on the property, outings and meals out are to your own expense to cover. However I always take my new visitors out to the local pub for an Australian beer.
I am a local artist, studying to improve my skills and help on the property is great and so is company here on the farm.
Bolwarra Heights is just a few kilometers north of Maitland, there are many historical sights to see, rivers to investigate and nature walks to experience. I am located 35 minutes from the city of Newcastle and a national airport for easy access to flights around the country.
