Born and raised in the heart of country Victoria, but currently living in Melbourne, I still have the Australian countryside in my heart and always love to get away and soak up the charm of regional life. I love the sheer ruggedness of Hanging Rock and beautiful Macedon Ranges especially the history, wildlife, sights and smells and look forward to sharing this experience with you.
