We are a recently retired couple who both worked as secondary school Heads of Departments. We are self- funded retirees in our mid-fifties who are enthusiastic about exploring other places. However ,we enjoy being a part of a community rather than merely from a tourist bus. Hence our desire to house swop.
We have three grown up married children- one in Sydney, one in Brisbane and one in Tannum Sands.We also have four beautiful grandchildren.
Our property in Tannum Sands is in a quiet rural residential area only a bike ride from the beach. We thoroughly enjoy this area for its mild climate , its beautiful foreshores, easy access to facilities and proximity to the Great Barrier Reef.
