The whale watching season lasts from late July to November. Frazer Island is the largest sand island in the world and well worth at least a day trip if not a 2 or 3 day visit. Maryborough is a 3 hour drive north of the Queensland capital Brisbane and is well serviced by road and rail. There are many areas of interest, local wineries, great fishing, national parks, the Bundaberg Rum distillery is only an hours drive north of Maryborough.

Baddow is a very quiet neighbourhood and boasts a wonderfull golf course which is only 2 blocks from the house. It is a short walk to the bus stop but a car is preferable, as one can do so much more when one can travell independently. I have excellant neighbours and will enlist the help of a friend who would be only to happy to help with any queries you may have with regard to how things work within the house.
I am semi retired and am studying French, I love to travell and intend to spend some time in France in 2012 or 2013. This year I am going to be in Europe and the UK for a 3 month period.
I have four grown children who have provided me with 12 grandchildren, however they all live in other areas.
My travell times are very flexable but I would prefer to be in Australia from Dec through to February. The other 9 months of the year are open.
I would be happy to exchange for any length of time ranging from 1 month up to a maxium of 3 months. Probably 6 weeks would be the ideal.
I would take extremely good care of your home as I hope you will with mine.
