My favorite place is Yarramundi Reserve. It's a beautiful place for a picnic, lay your towel down in the soft sand and soak up the sun and have a dip in the cool mountain water. It is very much a family friendly place.

If you are experienced at horse riding why not go on a trail ride along the water and through the Reserve. They also cater for beginners. Please visit the following website for more details. It's marvelous and just a short drive away.

I would absolutely love to do this and I'm an OP lol. If you want to see the Blue Mountains and surrounding areas why not travel on the back of a motor bike. Who wouldn't love to ride on the back of a Harley Davidson and sightsee around the Blue Mountains. Larger bikes available for the family. What a wonderful experience. Google 'Wild Ride Australia' they are excellent and are local. Or have a look at Adrenaline they have 2,500 Adventures so they have something for everyone. Go on be daring !!

If you want a somewhere that has it all in one place try Penrith Panthers Club. During the day enjoy Games & Activities, Aqua Golf, Cables Aqua Park, iFly Indoor Skydiving. Many activities for adults and children of all ages.

In the evening it offers fine dining with 11 restaurants and 7 bars and live entertainment. It is a renowned world leader for it's entertainment. Google. Penrith panters for more information

Closer to home and only a short drive away is Richmond Club that offers good food and entertainment and is also a lawn bowling club Google richmond club

For the more adventurous try whitewater rafting. Google penrith white water rafting well worth checking it out it is open during the summer season

After a tiring, adventurous day come home to a relaxing place that has no foot traffic or vehicle traffic, peace and quite. Look no further this is the place for you

It is private and separate from the main house. Guests are welcomed upon arrival then left to relax in their own space.

I live on the property in a separate house, with 2 medium sized dogs, so able to assist you as much or as little as you require.

Try breakfast or brunch in Richmond which has many cafes to chose from. I recommend Cafe Relish then on Saturday walk around the markets.

Or historic Windsor is a short drive away. Sunday is a great day to go for breakfast or brunch well worth a try is The Loft or Simon's Cafe then walk around Windsor markets and pick up a bargain or 2 or purchase some of our local honey and jams etc.

We have a very nice lawn bowling club that provides a pick up and drop off service and really nice bisto with good food.

Agnes Banks is also good for bush walking and cycling

I have been fortunate enough to have lived in 3 counties. Born not long after World War 2 in a little house in Kent and raised in South East London England. I lived in Vancouver for a couple of years and now call Australia home. I Have been in Australia for 50 years. After trying to dig my way to Australia as a young child, I guess I knew this was to be my home. I have travelled to many parts in Europe and have met some very interesting people. I enjoy meeting people so I hope I can be a good and informative host. I'll try my best. I'm a happy person and love dancing and music especially 60s and 70s. I am a Justice of the Peace so my integrity is important to me as well as honesty.
