About our home

We have a bright, comfortable, extensively and recently 're-renovated' two-level home with a fully equipped kitchen and two modern bathrooms, one with a bath tub and a separate toilet. We live on top of a hill and the upper deck overlooks a large bush garden with a view of mountains and trees. The home is very accommodating and very inviting and we enjoy entertaining in our fly-screened outdoor room overlooking the garden, with the sofa-bed providing the perfect sleeping area for those who feel like sleeping amongst the treetops. There are two bedrooms on this upper level, one with a sofa that converts to a double bed.

The downstairs former studio space is bright and spacious and perfect for a relaxing afternoon read, watching TV, playing Wii, entertaining, spending time at the computer or as a quiet retreat. It has access to a lower deck overlooking the garden, and a small side courtyard.

Downstairs also sports a bedroom with king-size bed that unzips to reveal two long-single beds with an adjoining bathroom and toilet, so the whole area downstairs is rather like a guest suite.

If you love birds and birdsong, then this is the place to be.

More about us

  1. We are a retired technician who loves to do odd jobs around the house and garden when not fishing on Queensland's coastal beaches and islands, and a keen artist who loves spending time in the studio area within our home.

    We have exchanged homes throughout the UK, France, Holland, Germany, Denmark and Australia in the past and look forward to many more exchanges in the future, both overseas and within Australia.

Where is it?


Our suburb of Ferny Hills is on the edge of the state forest, with numerous small shopping areas, health services and a library within walking distance. Not to mention that it is home to one of Brisbane's best Indian restaurants. We are close to both bus and rail services.

The area is lush and green and very hilly with lots of lovely walk-ways and parks within walking distance. If walking is not your thing, then our Hyundai i30 sedan is available for your use.

Larger shopping centres, sporting facilities, clubs and taverns, gymnasiums, swimming pools and eateries are handy and we are close to the beautiful Samford Valley, whilst being only a 20 minute drive to the heart of Brisbane. Thanks to Brisbane's network of tunnels, the domestic and international airports are only 25 minutes away.

The Gold and Sunshine Coasts are just an hour away from Brisbane.

We are blessed with wonderful neighbours, who have taken great care of our previous exchange families to help make their stays memorable.
