Where we want to go
Description of our house
Our home is a 90 year old two storey timber house with four double bedrooms, three with double beds, and one with a queen bed. There are also two double sofa beds. There are two bathrooms and two toilets. There is a spacious well appointed kitchen, a large dining room and lounge, a generous sun deck, and a separate family entertainment room opening onto a private, covered entertainment area with BBQ and banquet table. The adjacent tropical garden features a magnificent mango tree. At the front of the house the porch looks out onto the quiet tree lined avenue. It is a short three minute stroll into the village to shops and restaurants and tennis courts, a five minute walk to the swimming pool, and a short five minute drive to the golf course. It is a very pleasant course. You can play golf every day of the week and bookings are rarely required.

We live in a beautiful area of the world in a small eclectic village called Mullumbimby, nestled in the picturesque hinterland hills of Byron Bay in Northern New South Wales, Australia. This lovely town has a population of 3000 and boasts a public 18 hole golf course, public tennis courts and an olympic swimming pool. There are a multitude of beaches, streams, and nearby hillside villages to explore. It really is a paradise. We are 8 minutes by car from the beautiful seaside fishing village of Brunswick Heads, 20 minutes to fantastic Byron Bay, and 40 minutes to the Queensland Gold Coast. Our area is a haven for surfers, beach lovers, fishing enthusiasts, bike riders, walkers, snorkellers, divers, paragliders, skydivers, music and alternative culture lovers. All the summer activities are here in abundance.
