Would you like to live in a quite block with regular 'guests' including: kangaroos, kookaburras, possums and most recently a koala! Plus still be 7 minutes from town.
We are a active family who love to show guests the Aussie life. Be immersed in Australian culture, language and family.
Our family love to go camping, picnics, beach holidays, weekend trips and BBQ's with friends. Sometimes we like to light a bonfire at home and toast marshmallows or even cook a camp oven dinner.
Our large country block is 7 mins drive from the city of Toowoomba in sunny Queensland (1.5 hrs from Brisbane and 2 hrs drive from the Gold Coast). We love our quiet area. We aim to grow some of our own veggies and fruits but that can be a slow process.
We would love to travel more one day and really enjoy the cultural exchange.
We do prefer longer stays (1 month min or longer) for consistency for children but are open to offers.
Generally we can accommodate 1 guest. Must have a drivers license and be a confident driver
