My husband Jim and I live in one of the most remarkable places on the earth.
The natural beauty and tranquility of the Grampians is something we value and appreciate and desire to share with others.
We also love our woolly merinos who graze on the slopes of Astoria Park.
We are committed to our family, friends and neighbours.
People are important to us and we enjoy meeting them and discovering more about them and ourselves through their life stories.
The abundant home grown food we source from our vegetable garden gives us a deep sense of satisfaction and we enjoy sharing this abundance when in season.
Jim and I appreciate space as we have plenty of it and understand that some folk enjoy their own privacy and others love the interaction with their hosts. We are happy to accommodate both.
We enjoy simple things - Like watching the fly catcher dart in and around to catch himself an airborne meal, seeing the iridescent red robins line up on the top of each fence post to let us know that cold weather is approaching. The ridiculous laugh of the Kookaburra coming from the creek and yes the amazing Red Man Bluff as the sunrise reflects the glory and splendour of colour and creation that no man could make.
Yes! We love to share and I feel like I'm already doing that with you as you read on - by the way Jim, did I mention that Jim likes a yarn or two and has quite a few up his sleeve.
Our main mode of transport is auto and we do many kilometers a year living in the bush and travelling to the main farm some fifty kms south.
As rural Aussie's we are practical, enjoy a laugh and live to be a witness of the life that is in us.
We are blessed to live in this great land and share it with those who come to Astoria Park.
