in the beginning…..

While holidaying in Tasmania in December 2007, we realised it was the place we wanted to call home. Almost a year later, we bid farewell to friends and family and made the big move overseas – from South Australia. After renting for five months in the least prestigious suburb of Launceston, we found our ideal property amongst the green rolling hills of the beautiful northwest

Secretly stashed away from the road with the only neighbours a few paddocks away, it was almost too good to be true

The view from the front windows overlook our fifty acres of pristine rainforest, across to farmland on the other side of the valley, where poppies and potato crops create an ever-changing palette

The spectacle of the mist rising up from the rainforest never ceases to entrance me

And the way the light from the setting sun dazzles through the trees…….

Even the tiny furry creatures are more…. contented

There is something different to appreciate every day – coming home after a walk in the forest

We are very happy to have found our slice of Paradise
