Our home

Our country house is on our ideallic 110 acre farm, including a 5 acre vineyard overlooking a scenic river valley and Mount Gullaga. It's 12 years old and comfortably furnished, carpeted throughout and with lovely views over the surrounding countryside. The climate is very mild in winter (maximums around 18-22 C) and warm but not too hot in summer (max 22-33 C), benefiting from sea breezes and the proximity to the sea. It is located 3 hours drive from Canberra and five hours drive (or a half hour flight) from Sydney on the south coast of New South Wales. The house sits in a 2 acre garden with many fruit trees, flowers, a large pond and deck as well as a shade room and terrace for dining, relaxing and sunbathing.

Who we are

  1. I've recently retired as an Australian Government economist and my wife, Frances, is still working for our Treasury department. We are in our 50s. Our daughter Joanna, 21, is in her final year of university and our son Sam, 19, is about to start university in 2006, but would not travel with us. I have planted a vineyard on our land in the last 3 years and we hope to produce our first vintage in early 2006. We love travelling, particularly in Italy and France. As our primary home is in Canberra, the timing of an exchange can be flexible in 2006.

Your neighbourhood

Our farm is a 10 minute drive from the pristine beaches of the far South Coast of New South Wales. It's ten minutes drive from, Bermagui, the closest beach resort village, which is famous for deep see fishing and surfing (beach pictured). The village has several restaurants, and excellent fresh food shopping, including for seafood. Its also close to several national parks with spectacular coastal scenery, historic craft villages, and a local Aboriginal cultural and craft centre.
