About our home

Our home is a spacious open plan bungalow with plenty of entertaining room and a small deck with a barbecue. We have a very friendly cat and 3 chooks. The garden is very productive with vegetables and citrus fruit trees will start producing soon. There is a lovely front sunroom which offers a warm nook in winter but the back area is perfect for summer.

More about us

  1. My wife Libby and I are retired teachers. We have a son in Brisbane and a daughter in Edinburgh both of whom have children so we like to visit them often. We love our current life but like to get away occasionally to enjoy other parts of the world but, more recently, Australia.

Where is it?


Port Macquarie is a large city with its own airport and nearly every shop imaginable. Our house is not far from the beaches. A main road passes nearby but we live in a very quiet street. There is a medical centre nearby and the city centre is just minutes away by car or one hour away on foot. There are numerous beaches nearby and some fantastic coastal walks. Whale and dolphin watching is common during the season and there are cruises available to get up closer. Port, as the locals call it, boasts a fantastic entertainment centre; the Glasshouse, which has the best acoustics we have ever heard. There's a beautiful Rainforest reserve. Add to this the fantastic array of cafes and restaurants and you have a recipe for one of the nicest coastal cities in Australia.
