Location

Tallebudgera, Queensland, Australia

This historic, lovingly restored homestead sits on a hill overlooking the Tallebudgera River and the valley. It's very peaceful, yet nearby are great coffeeshops, restaurants, and farmers' markets, as well as parks, beaches, and bushwalks to explore.

I'm a Sydneysider who now lives in Queensland. The farm has been our family holiday home for over 40 years. Every school holidays I eagerly looked forward to spending time here – waking to the birds, horseriding, swimming in the surf, bushwalking, collecting eggs, growing and cooking fresh vegetables. I have travelled and lived in Europe, Asia and South America. I recently gave up my career as a Solicitor in Sydney to escape to the serenity of the farm and Tallebudgera area where I now look after the property and work as a remedial massage therapist. I enjoy gardening and cooking (especially trialling new recipes using our exotic fruit – some of my recent successes have been yellow mangosteen cheesecake and black sapote tiramisu), teaching kids these skills and keeping a vegetable patch. I generally go to the local farmers markets of a weekend for the weekly shop and to catch up with the local producers. I love welcoming people to the farm and hosting friends and guests.
