Description of our house
My home is a 4BR family home overlooking the Coral Sea. It is situate on Magnetic island, which is an island suburb of Townsville (pop.250,000) in North Queensland. The island is a government initiative solar island and boasts the best climate in Australia with 320 days of sunshine a year. 90% of the island is national park, with extensive walking tracks, 23 beaches, of which only 7 can be accessed by road - the others by boat, canoe or jetski. Most services are available on Magnetic Island, supermarkets, hotels, medical, trades etc.

Domestic, really. I spend most of my time outdoors in the pool, or lazing under the palm trees, with a daily stroll along the beach or bushwalking along the tracks. The cockies come each morning and evening, and sit on the balcony, while I occasionally get woken up by baby kangaroos and rock wallabies who come down for a wander.
Something about ourselves
I am a retired accountant, and enjoy travelling the world. I spend my time in Australia between Melbourne (in summer), and Magnetic Island (in winter).
