  • Description

    Description

    We are a well travelled and educated couple in our (very fit and young-minded) sixties, who have lived on our alternative lifestyle farm for 40 years. Our love of the rainforest around us has led us to plant many many thousands of trees on our 64 hectare property to extend the forest into our land.
    Apollo Bay provides a unique combination of ocean and mountain, rainforest and green rolling farmed grassland, which allows us to indulge our passion for nature, organic farming, (and for one of us), saiing the often wild waters of Bass Strait where the famous Sydney-Hobart yacht race is held
