  • Description


    We are a group of 3 people - two (older) parents and one adult child. We run acting studios in Melbourne and Geelong and our daughter is a visual artist / digital marketer. We live in a lovely seaside town near Melbourne. It's great for surfing, paddle boarding, beach walks, bike riding and cafes.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Our area is great for surfing and paddle boarding enthusiasts - or those who would love to give it a try. We live very close to a river where we paddle board regularly. We also have some of the best surfing beaches in Victoria nearby. The Great Ocean Road and the Otway Ranges are an hour from us - they offer spectacular scenery and great hiking.

    We have bikes and a stand up paddle board you would be welcome to use. The beach and cafes are a 15 minute cycle away and you can walk to the river to paddle board. There is public transport down to the Great Ocean Road.
