  • Description


    We're a family of four, two girls aged 5 and 3 and live in the pea green hills of the Sunshine Coast hinterland in a region called Dulong. We're twenty minutes from the beach and live on 17-acres where we have four polo ponies that need to be constantly worked. We exercise the horses in the Mapleton State Forest or neighbouring properties, with Sunday chukkas at a nearby field or we play away. We live in the most sublime place in the world with brilliant coffee shops, restaurants, beaches and national parks right on our doorstep.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    As a family we've travelled a lot and love that we can 'pay it forward' for the right person. You'll learn about the world of polo and will definitely be able to stick and ball if you're keen. You'll love the unique opportunity of being able to ride brilliant horses in the native bushland of Australia. And then that afternoon be surfing down at the beach, we have the best that Australia has to offer - the bush and the beach on our doorstep.
