Peter and Philip moved to Wilsons Creek from Adelaide nearly 3 years ago. Gardening and the outdoors is our passion particularly here in the sub-tropics. We pride ourselves in our home and the accommodation that we have built. This is our paradise, a truly beautiful place and now we are living our dream that we want to share with others. We enjoy good food, wine and music. Sharing a laugh with good friends is our energy. We have travelled the world extensively and have met many people who have stayed life long friends.
