You can hear more about that in this podcast episode.

We're from the Central Coast in NSW, and have also lived in Broome, WA, Mooolaba on the Sunshine Coast, QLD and Burleigh Heads on the Gold Coast, Queensland.

We've also taken many short trips to explore our beautiful country even further.

We have a huge amount of useful travel tips and destination highlights on Australia to help you plan your trip.
