Our home

Our home is situated in Belrose, a leafy suburb 10-15 minutes from Sydney's Northern Beaches. We're 10 minutes from Dee Why and 15 from Narrabeen. We have good public transport, a bus stop 5 minutes walk away can get you into the Centre of Sydney in 30-35 minutes, or to Chatswood where you can link up with City Rail.

The house was built in the 60s in classic Aussie beach house style. It is bright and airy, and over the last few years we have given it a pretty good makeover with polished floors throughout, and a new kitchen, bathroom and toilet.

There are balconies front and rear and beautiful low maintenance gardens, with a gas BBQ on the back balcony.

We have 2 TVs, vhs video, DVD, Hifi and lots of CDs and vinyl, together with a computer (Emac) with dialup internet and a printer.

Who we are

  1. John: I recently retired after 30-odd years working in the administration of the University of Sydney, and I fill in my time with a variety of interests, including voluntary work at the the Art gallery of New South Wales, working and presenting a jazz/blues/world music program on a local community station, and playing with an elderly 1964 Healey Sprite sports car which takes a bit of time and money.

    Diana: I work part time in administration in the Surf Life Saving movement, and am a keen gardener, putting in lots of time and taking great pride in our garden (as you will see). I was born in the Uk, and have lots of relatives in London, Kent, Surrey and Hampshire with whom we have corresponded over the years.

    Our interests include theatre, and music. We are regular attendees at the Tamworth Country festival and the East Coast Blues and Roots Music Festival at Byron bay each Easter, but we attend local venues as well and take in a few symph concerts each year. Diana does quilting also likes to go to the ballet. We also get to the galleries when we can and John follows motor racing.

    We had a successful exchange in the northern summer of 2005 and want to do it again

    We have two adult children, one teaching in japan, the other working in the aircraft industry in Bristol.
