Our home

Our home is situated approximately 25 km NW of the Sydney CBD in "The Hills" district. We are close to public transport so it is unnecessary to drive to see most of what Sydney has to offer. The Blue Mountains are accessible by train as is Sydney CBD. The beach can be reached by bus or by train and ferry. There are a number of large shopping centres close by which can be reached by public transport but a car is preferable. The house has a large living area downstairs consisting of lounge, dining, family rooms and kitchen and bathroom. There is also a large room which has been set up with a home theatre, great if you like watching movies! The downstairs opens onto large covered verandahs which contain a BBQ area overlooking the pool, which is salt water chlorinated. Downstairs is very cool in summer. Upstairs there are four bedrooms, a bathroom with separate toilet as well as an ensuite off the main bedroom.

Who we are

  1. My wife and I are both teachers. We gave up the classroom to become librarians and both work in schools closer to Sydney. We have travelled to England, Italy and France but because we are restricted to school holidays have only managed to arrange one exchange; in London over the Northern Hemisphere winter, not an experience we are keen to repeat. We see an exchange as an interesting and economical way to experience life in another country other than through hotels.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

We are surrounded by trees and there is a reserve close by offering pleasant walks through the bush (forest) as well as the surrounding suburbs. There is abundant birdlife (cockatoos, galahs, parrots, ducks) as well as possums, echidnas, lizards (no kangaroos). If you wish to see kangaroos, koalas, wallabies and other Australian native fauna the wildlife reserve "Koala Park" is a short walk away, as is the Cumberland State Forest.
