Having lived in Singapore, USA (NJ, NYC, IN), and Indonesia, the beautiful Tasmania is now home for me.
I live on 21 acres with my Tasmanian-born & raised husband Noel, our furkid Max, & lots of wallabies (similar to kangaroos).
The lifestyle here is easy, the air clean, the water pure, the food delicious, the wine smooth.
And I'd like to share our slice of paradise with you...
