Our neighborhood:

We have a Conservation Nature reserve 2 minutes walk from our home, with walking tracks, pretty faced wallabies and other delightful flora and fauna.  Daisy Hill Koala Centre is 5 minutes by car where Koalas can be viewed in their natural habitat.  The grounds surrounding the center are ideal for picnics and wallabies and kangaroos often come over to say hello.

We are very centrally located both to Brisbane City and also to the Gold Coasts famous beaches.  The city can be reached in 20-25 minutes by car or 30 minutes by bus from the Springwood Bus Station.  There is a bus stop 3-4 minutes walk from our house.  A car trip to the Gold Coast can take 30-35 minutes. The freeway which runs north to the city or south to the Gold Coast is easily accessed from our home by a 5-7 minute drive.

About us:

We are a Mum in my early 50's and a 32 year old son.  I also have a 29 year old daughter who may travel with us from time to time.  We love adventure.  At present we are in the process of organizing a house swap to Canada for 6 months and would like to stay in a few other places in North America while we are away.  We are particularly interested in Prince Edward Island, New York and Mexico from July 2012.
