= marks the location of this home
The town of Emerald (pop. 16000) is the hub of the Central Highlands and our house is ideally located for touring around this area eg. Carnarvon Gorge National Park, Blackdown Tableland National Park and the Capricorn Coast area of Queensland eg. Rockhampton (2 3/4hrs drive), Yeppoon (3 1/2hrs drive) and Great Keppel Island. Nearby to Emerald is Lake Maraboon/Fairbairn Dam (15 mins drive) for watersports and fishing, and the Sapphire Gemfields where you can go fossicking for your own gems. Cotton farming and other agricultural and mining operations are also prominent in Central Queensland. Our car will be available for you to go touring around this area and further afield to the Australian Outback, North Queensland, Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast, Brisbane and more.
Something about ourselves
We are a married couple with a 6yr old son looking to experience exchanges overseas or within Australia. My husband works in the mining industry and I am a teacher currently on family leave. We have just returned from a long term exchange to Canada and thoroughly loved it. We love the idea of home exchanges as they are a great way to explore and live in another country plus see more of our own country. We would love to hear from you.
