‘Such a magic place to be a part of. I love that in 10 minutes I can be climbing some fantastic granite cliffs or white water kayaking on the numerous beautiful rivers running through the valley. All this can be topped off with great food and a beer at the brewery to finish the day. Happy man! Alex and I feel really grateful to be involved in a fantastic community in one of Australia’s most amazing places to live.’ My favourites? It has to be the following….
- Any trip to Mt Buffalo- the Island in the sky. A remarkable mountain all year round and is very special place to be a part of. With soaring granite peaks up to 300m high, massive waterfalls that cascade down the mountain and abundance of alpine flora and fauna making this a mountain to remember.
- Winter [White Season] – Cross-country skiing, tobogganing down the two groomed toboggan slopes, hot chocolate at the heated café at Dingo Dell.
- Warmer months [Green Season] – An absolute paradise for hiking, rafting and rock climbing! The spectacular views of the high country, the crisp air, the feel of granite beneath your fingertips and the crystal clear rivers. Bring it on…’
