My Federation house is 10 km from the CBD and is located in a quiet and leafy suburb. The private room has a comfy queen size bed with wardrobe and drawer space. It is an easy 5 minute walk to the Ivanhoe Shopping strip and to the railway station. I am close to the Austin Hospital, Latrobe University and the Yarra River.
My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travellers.

Like everyone else I love travel, so have been to many places. Now my travel destinations tend to be to experience more remote places to see the fauna and flora, with Sumatra and Africa being favourite destinations. I'm hoping to add Costa Rica and Galapagos to the list in the next year.
As a volunteer with Zoos Victoria I meet many of the local people as well as the International visitors and love introducing them to our own unique inhabitants. I also have a keen appreciation of art and Melbourne can definitely cater for this interest. I am happy to share with you my love of Melbourne and Australia and if needed will happily discuss your Australian destinations.
I have a loving and supportive family including two energetic grandchildren with whom I love doing things.
My rustic garden is home to many of the smaller honeyeaters and I often have visits from the magpies and the currawongs.
I miss not having either a dog or a cat and hope to rectify this soon.
