“Pam & Stan are kind hosts, flexible and easy to deal with. Their house is homely, modern, very spacious with a lovely views of their garden, golf course and beyond from the decks. The local town of Merimbula is very pretty, has plenty of shops, cafes and restaurants and great walks and beaches. It is also strategically placed for many other beautiful white beaches and bays a short drive away. Thank you Pam & Stan. We look forward to seeing you in Yorkshire in 2015.”

Where is it?
We live in the suburb of Forde in the north of Canberra, Australia's National Capital. Our suburb is reasonably new and well planned and has lots of pretty walks and cycle paths. We are very close to Mulligan's Flat Woodland Sanctuary where you are able to walk in bush land and see native animals (especially kangaroos) and birds. There are also lovely shorter walks around the suburb to playgrounds and a series of small lakes. Our small local shopping centre is a 5 minute walk away and has a small supermarket, a great café, a take-away shop, a good Chinese restaurant, a chemist, and a small swim school. Less than 10 minutes by car there is the larger Gungahlin shopping centre with a Post Office, doctors, dentists, chemists, 3 large supermarkets, banks, a library, many cafes and restaurants and a good selection of different shops.
There is a good bus service with connections to the centre of Canberra and a new light rail service is being built which is expected to be in operation in late 2018. Canberra has a rail station with connections to Sydney, a long distance coach station and an airport with direct international flights to New Zealand and Singapore as well as domestic flights across Australia.
Being the National Capital, Canberra has many attractions to explore, some examples are: Old and New Parliament Houses, The National Gallery, National Museum, National Portrait Gallery, Questacon (Science Museum), National Library, National Zoo and Aquarium, Australian National Botanic Gardens, Canberra Arboretum, The War Memorial, Canberra Reptile Zoo, Cockington Green Gardens (miniature villages), many parks and recreational areas.
