More about us

  1. We will consider any non-simultaneous exchange offer, however during 08/09 we want to stay closer to home & only exchange within the regions of Australia/New Zealand/Hawaii/Fiji.
    We are Jane & Don, non-smokers, both aged 59, & we love to travel. We have had previous home exchanges & have enjoyed living as ‘locals’. Our exchanges have been in London, near Vienna & near Lake Lugano. We really enjoy exchanging homes because we meet so many great people, and learn so much about a country’s culture and everyday life. We love Australia, and would like others to view it from our prospective. We love Sydney but also love our Unit at the Whitsundays. Jane is a retired Executive Assistant & Don is retiring in the very near future after working as a Manager with Local Government in the Contracts/Stores area. Don previously spent 22 years in the Royal Australian Navy & Jane was also in the RAN until marrying and having 3 daughters. All are married, & we currently have 8 Grandchildren. 2 of our daughters live in NSW, whilst the other lives in QLD. Travel & travel planning, you could say, would be our main hobby. Although Jane likes to do some cross-stitch. We both like watching sport & that means going to watch Australia play cricket, Rugby Union & we support a Rugby League Team.
