  • Description

    Description

    We are an agile mature couple with a sense of adventure and a love of travel, especially throughout SE Asia, well off the tourist trail! When we are not traveling we spend a lot of time boating/sailing around the beautiful waters of Hervey Bay. Both of us enjoy cooking, walking and caring for our pet dogs, Paddy is a Kelpie and Jack is a Border Collie bitzer. Currently we have cats staying with us as our daughter is traveling through Europe, backpacking and workawaying!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    As a couple we are of English/German background. We are more than happy and able to assist with language and would be delighted to show you around the pristine and beautiful waters of the Great Sandy Straits, Fraser Island and its amazing beaches.. Boating is an important part of our lives, we started out living on a sailing yacht in the Mediterranean, many years ago. We now have a live aboard motor vessel and a smaller sailing boat equipped with gear for spear fishing, snorkeling and fishing.

    Our home is a regular modern Australian low set house on a half acre about 20mins walk from Urangan beach, 10 mins to the botanical gardens and 30 mins to Urangan Pier. Guest accommodation is a comfortable room with single bunks and shared bathroom. We have a pool and trampoline. Good food is important to us, we enjoy cooking, vegetarian options not a problem as I don't eat meat but Max does. You are more than welcome to help with cooking,sharing is learning.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We are a pretty easy going couple, non-smokers, social drinkers. It is important for us that people feel at home in our home. There is public transport close by but we are in and around town daily and are more than happy to transport you. Hervey Bay is a quiet town but does have a very nice and as long as you want Esplanade walk from Urangan to Point Vernon. The beaches are beautiful, clean and quiet. Point Vernon and Eli Creek are beautiful at sunrise and sunset, Fraser Island really is a 'must see' with its white sands, pristine waters, solitude, flora, fauna and ecologically amazing creeks.
