So many other attractions are within a short drive and include Gumbaya World amusement park for the young and young at heart, the Port of Sale historic river cruise, Wilsons Promontary National Park, Buchan Caves, Mt Baw Baw’s beautiful summer walking trails and winter snow fields, Ninety mile beach and so much more! With access to a 4x4 and complete camping facilities including a fridge/freezer you will be free to explore the best of beaches and nature and have the luxury of ‘home’ to return to in between exploring the great outdoors. The city of Warragul is 23 kms distant and has a huge number of amenities including a hospital and a railway station. Catching a train takes you directly to Melbourne within 90 mins with all its attractions, shows, diversions and distractions. The Sweetwater reserve is within a km of the property. This series of National and State parks extends for 600 kms, all the way to Australia’s capital, Canberra. It also incorporates the Alpine Walking trails for hardcore hikers and adventurers. The area above our property is a popular venue for walkers, mountain bikes, motor bikes and horse riding. There is also a variety of birdlife and small harmless native animals in the near vicinity including kangaroos, wallabies, echidna, wombats, koalas, goannas, kookaburras, lyrebirds, platypus, honeyeaters and bright red rosellas.

Getting around

The property is only suitable for people who are able/willing to drive a vehicle. I would be happy to swap cars as well as the home. https://www.zoo.org.au/healesville https://penguins.org.au/attractions/penguin-parade/ https://www.melbourneaquarium.com.au https://www.travelvictoria.com.au/yarragon/ https://gumbuya.com.au/ http://www.saleheritagecruises.com.au https://www.visitmelbourne.com/Regions/Gippsland/Destinations/Lakes-Entrance

Member description
We are a family group of three generations who have been exploring parts of the world and Australia together for over 13 years. This is our first house swap foray and we are super excited at the endless possibilities! We trust our beautiful home and natural surroundings will interest and inspire you too! I, Joy am retired now from work but not from life. I was a sales manager for many years before starting my own direct sales jewellery company with 10 employers and 200 commission agents across Australia. I am a neat freak according to my grandson which is probably the best asset I have to offer as both a home owner (you can be sure my home is comfortable, spruced up and spiffy for you) and as a potential home exchanger as I can’t turn the cleaning/caring gene off when I’m in your home! My daughter Lisa who is our tour guide is an adventurer who drags us all kicking and laughing out of our comfort zone everywhere we go ... which so far between us has been The Phillipines, Vietnam, India, Singapore, Hong Kong, Athens, the Greek islands, Zimbabwe, Croatia, Switzerland, Austria, France, Malta, Italy, the U.K., U.S., and coming up on our fourth 3 month visit to South America. Lisa is my ‘boy/girl’ in that her father trained her to be self sufficient and taught her such diverse things as how to fix a water pump, rewire her caravan, repair fences, change a tyre and do running repairs, gardening and home maintenance in general. She would be an asset if left to oversee your home, pets and property. Wilson is a free spirit who sees in nature, animals, art and music that which others may not. He loves small children and all animals! He is an accomplished musician and composer in English and Spanish which he speaks fluently. He plays a variety of instruments including the piano, guitar and Bolivian instruments such as the charango and zampoñas.
