We are in our early 60’s. John is retired and Catherine working part time as a Nurse. We are both very active, and like to be kept busy. Our interests include; sailing, sculpturing, woodworking, gardening, rainforest regeneration, swimming, walking, travelling and camping. We love “The Northern Rivers” as the area is called with it’s mix of quiet rural lifestyle set in the bounds of five significant World Heritage listed National Parks. Yet it is only 1 hour to the vibrant Gold Coast, 40 mins to the International airport and 1 1/2 hours to Brisbane, Queenslands Capital city. Beaches are 1/2 an hour away and their are a dozen towns and villages within an hours drive.
