Retired restaurant couple with 100 acre lifestyle property situated on the banks of beautiful Tinana creek. We are close to 4 beach side towns plus Hervey Bay (Australia's Whale watch capital) Queensland's Heritage City Maryborough, Tin Can Bay where you can feed the dolphins and Heritage listed Fraser Island. We breed cattle and have a large rare fruit orchard. We enjoy company, entertaining, cooking, music, fishing and our garden. We produce most of our own fruit, vegetables and meat. (No vegetarians or smokers thank you)
We have one very friendly dog, chickens, quiet cows and an abundance of wildlife. We are currently working on our rare fruit orchard and clearing small regrowth rubbish from our eco project. We have a large area fenced off to protect critically endangered trees and black button quail which were found here. A native animal habitat, Land for Wildlife and environmental projects are ongoing so we are looking for help to share the workload.
Our home is relaxed and friendly with all meals provided and visitors included in all social activities. We have a 5 bedroom, air-conditioned modern brick home with wide verandahs all around with entertainment area. The house is surrounded by established lawns and gardens with beautiful views over the surrounding bush.
We have a great lifestyle in a beautiful area. Come share the experience with us.
