Who we are

  1. My name is Alan and my wife is Maree.
    We are retired accountants. Alan enjoys his hobby of converting vans to motorhomes. Maree spends much time in her sewing room, enjoying puzzles and in the garden..
    We enjoy travel both overseas and within Australia, and set off often to see Australia and the world. We really enjoy the experience of living within communities in another country, rather than in hotels.
    When in Australia, we also enjoy motorhome travel.
    We have exchanged houses 51 times and thoroughly enjoy the experience; they are all unique.
    We are non-smokers. We have no pets.

    We really enjoy the company of our 4 grandchildren, Eric 17, Eleanor 14 and 7 year old twins named Matilda and Frankie.

    You are invited to share our wonderful older but cheerful home in the heart of Launceston in the north of Tasmania. The house is sighted to take advantage of the sun as well as the extensive views.
    All assistance will be given to make your stay at our house as good as it can be.
    We are also very happy to have non-simultaneous exchanges or to host you.
    We will respect your home and leave it in the same condition as we found it.

    Importantly, we are also seeking longer term exchanges as well as shorter ones so we can better absorb your customs

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

The provincial city of Launceston offers all that a traveler needs. Good restaurants, smart cafes for that short break from sightseeing, museums, parks and gardens, some of Australia's best street-scapes of older commercial buildings and homes, the Cataract Gorge and swimming basin.
Stadium brings interstate sporting events.
Enjoy walks around our local area, or further afield.
Excellent shopping with national chain stores and boutiques as well as traditional and new Tasmanian outlets.
Situated near the famous wine growing area of the Tamar Valley in northern Tasmania, with cellar door sales not far away.
You can visit beaches, or the mountains, or go caving, bike riding, see seahorses being bred, or tour the scenic Tasmanian countryside.
Trout fishing in the highlands in season. Snow skiing on Ben Lomond

Overseas travelers have marveled about our nature, our wide beaches with no-one about and so few cars on the roads. '
Tasmania is the large southern fertile Australian island, approx 300 km from north to south.

Easy travel to the mainland of Australia via plane to Launceston airport from Brisbane, Sydney or Melbourne (1 hour), or car ferry (11 hours)
