    We are a family of 4, we live in Kyneton, an hour from Melborne by train. We have a 8 acre hobby farm with a new orchid, veggie patch and some friendly horses that come to visit occassionally. We also have a 4 year old son, 2 year old daughter and pet Labrador who is often inside. Tim commutes to Melbourne for work, Nicole looks after the kids and the farm but never has time to do either of these well.

    What else ...

    We live in Kyneton, an hour by train from Melbourne, day trip to Melbourne, we are near the dividing range with great walking trails, near mineral springs and spa country. We are a 10min drive from the nearest shops without public transport, so we could probably drop you in, or you could borrow a pushbike if you don't have your own vehicle. Kyneton has a bus service, just not to our place, we also have a vline station.
