I am running the property with help from backpackers and some additional workers. I have 4 children all married with 6 grandchildren. One son and daughter live in Australia and the other 2 daughters live in the US and Germany. This was a retirement project after living in Sydney for many years. My hobbies are working on the property. I am involved in several community groups.
