    Description

    Hi, I enjoy the outdoors and lovely ocean/estuary/river near here as well as cycling, horse riding, kayaking, beaching and motorcycles. I love animals and have two cats and two horses and practice natural horsemanship with them. Also love live music of most types including playing a few tunes on the ukulele. My grandchildren are nearby so enjoy some play time with them as well.
    Remedial massage practitioner with 35 years experience in the natural health industry and am happy to teach some tricks of the trade. Basically vegetarian but fine with meat lovers in the kitchen!
    I have finished renovating an old (120 years) wood fired scotch oven and bakery and now wish to complete the restoration of the small adjacent living area and basement of the building, as well as retrieve historical items yet undiscovered under the building.

    I have been a host on and off for many years and like to show guests the natural beauty of the area with trips to the beach and some mountain walks, as well as sharing social and community events. Spare mountain bike and kayak also available.
    Situated in town close to bus and train access, cafes, hotels and the Snowy River. Close to beaches, estuary, river, national parks etc. enjoy the nature, with the convenience of the town, close to the rail trail.

    Travellers will be well looked after and get to experience some of the natural beauty of this area including river, estuary and ocean. Mountains nearby with some old forest left for old growth walk. I am happy to share my knowledge around natural health, particularly massage as well as natural horsemanship/riding and small business experience. I am easy going and sociable, as are my family and grandchildren who live near by.
