The Local Area
This really is the best part of town! It's a quiet neighbourhood and just out of the town center enough to be relaxed, without being too far away.
There are loads of great cafes nearby and all you will need including a bakery, butcher, lots of options for yummy food - sushi, Thai, Chinese, Modern Australian Cuisine (check out NOA), a bottle shop and a small supermarket all a 3 min walk away.
The bigger, cheaper supermarket, post office and chemist are about a 10min walk away.
The Botanical Gardens are just up the road, free and well worth a look! The Tanks Arts Center is also within walking distance and has lots of great exhibitions and events (I've seen some great bands there!)
There are 3 bush walks you can do close by. A 1hr trek - The Red Arrow, a 5hr trek - The Blue Arrow and the new longer Yellow Arrow.
There is supreme bird watching down the road at the Chinese Gardens - Pelicans, Magpie Geese, Egrets, Storks and more.
We also have a lot of birds in the garden at the house. Rainbow Bee Eaters, Sunbirds, Kookaburras and more and a good bird book for people who are interested.
Keep your eyes open for the Green Tree Frogs and Birdwing and Ulysses butterflies :)

I am a dance teacher and run my own dance school. Love art, travel, food, books, music and good people! NYC is one of my favourite places on the planet though I've traveled a fair bit and am looking forward to seeing/experiencing more! I am easy going and friendly and love showing people my little piece of paradise! I have adopted a beautiful dog Foxy. She's super shy, great with kids and loves pats once she gets to know you :)

During your stay
I have traveled a lot myself and stayed with people all over the world so am aware of travelers needs and what makes for a good experience :)

I can easily provide you with loads of local information re swimming spots, where to find the best food and local entertainment, tours etc.

I am often home though do go away at times.
When I am away I have a friend who lives nearby who manages the house so she can help with anything you need :) When I'm home I am happy to give you space or hang out depending on how much work I have or how our schedules work out. I'm also up for dropping people into town when I can, taking people to the river for swims when time allows and will invite guests to dance classes and other events whenever possible :)
