I live on a beautiful 10 acre property (in the hills) 50 minute drive East of Perth Western Australia.
I have two dogs, one cat, pet geese and hens and Bees.
It is beautifully peaceful rural setting. There is a small village some 10 minutes from me, National parks, great walking trails and abundance of wildlife.
You should preferably have your own transport so that you can get around the hills a little as there are interesting settlements/villages, national parks etc. There is a bus service to the main centres. However, as we are Rural the service is very limited.
