  • Description


    I live in a beautiful part of the north coast of New South Wales, in the village of Hat Head. I am an artist and also have a mental health nursing practice, which doesn't leave much time to get everything done !
    I live with my adult son Frank, and we have a small dog called Sunni.My other children come home to stay from time to time.
    Our community is small , but welcoming.You can walk to the beaches, and to the general store in the village from my place.
    In your down time you will be able to enjoy going to our many beaches, and exploring the headlands and waterways of the Hat Head National Park .

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    As much of the east coast is developing and urbanising, Hat Head has remained the same tiny fishing village, tucked away in a large national park. Life goes by at a leisurely pace, where the ebb and flow of the tides marks the hours. Hat Head is a great stop for travellers who are interested in the natural world .
