I’ve lived in the premises I am now since 1994, and lived in the area since 1982.
What do you do for a living?
At this present stage I work for Valley Freight, a freight service, and also I do house removals.
What are your hobbies and interests?
Mainly walking. I used to race motorbikes quite extensively, but I’ve since retired from that, so mainly just walking and enjoying the country.
What do you like about the area?
You would have to like the peacefulness, the scenery. The people are pretty easy going, pretty friendly. It is a nice place to live. We have a lot of aspects going for us.
Where would you take visitors to showcase the area?
There are many places that you can take people to show, particularly the history of the place. There is a lot of history where people have grown up. Mount Buffalo is a good scenery area, there’s a lot of scenic spots on the river.
Is there anything you would change about the area?
No I think it’ll change itself. As more people find the area and find it nice, they will settle here more and the area will change itself more than anything.
