  • Description

    Description

    My husband, myself and our 10 year daughter plus our two miniature poodles live in this old farmhouse. We have lived in Tassie for just over a year now. We moved down from Sydney. My mum ( often called nanny) visits from Sydney as well. We operate a hostel and Air BNB on the next property. We have a 7 acre farm which we are trying to be as self sufficient as we can. We have lots of fruit trees to feed us and have started up a veggie garden. We agist sheep and calves as well as having our own chickens.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We live in a farm area in the North West of Tassie, close to the beach, but not too far from shops. We would love to help you learn about the Aussie/Tassie life, help you with your English, but generally welcome you into our family and our way of life. We would love to learn about your country and learn some of your language. This would be a great experience for our daughter, Wynnona!
