My wife and I live in a rural setting, on 5 acres, 13 kms from Ballarat and 4km from Delacombe shopping centre. We love gardening, mountain bike riding, physical activity, golf, healthy eating and wine. We are both retired from full time work with Jennie really keen on Pilates. We have traveled extensively, both around Australia in our caravan and overseas. We also enjoy meeting new people, especially families with children. We offer our home for accommodation in a very quiet area with extensive gardens and access to natural bush land, state forests and cycling paths. It is a great place to unwind.
