We are a professional couple in our mid thirties who live and work in the Canberra area. My partner is a graphic designer and i work for TAFE in the ACT. We have two lovely little girls who are three and four months of age. We are home owners who enjoy renovating, spending time together and rediscovering Australia with our little girls. We are looking to travel to most locations throughout Australia, especially weekends away to spend more time together as a family. My partner plays professional lawn bowls throughout Australia and as a family we love to travel together. We are non-smokers, social drinkers, and home cooks.

About our House: Our house is a three bedroom weatherboard which has had newly carpeted and painted in the last 18 months as well as a renovated bathroom. A huge deck at the rear of the property allows you a space to sit and relax. The house has a master bedroom, a second bedroom which houses my daughters toddler bed and a cot, and a spare room which we use as an office but could accommodate a guest bed. The house has gas heating, ducted cooling and gas hot water. Washer and dryer is also for your use if you want to do something domestic. In the kitchen an oven, fridge, microwave and lots of gadget await any master chefs before sitting down to eat at the dinning table which seats six. Those with children (or those young at heart) will also enjoy the trampoline, cubbyhole house, and countless toys to keep little ones entertained. Of course there are televisions, stereos and a playstation for those wanting indoor entertainment. Please excuse the outside pictures we are in the middle of landscaping.
Located in central Queanbeyan, our three bedroom weatherboard house is in walking distance to shops, library, transport and the hospital. To read more about Queanbeyan see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Queanbeyan . Queanbeyan is is also a quick 20 minute drive to most parts of Canberra, Australia's capital city. Being the capital there are interesting events and attractions on offer all year round suited to singles, couples and families. Canberra is especially good for the budget conscious as most attractions are free or at very reasonable rates, and in most cases the parking is free too. To read more about attractions and upcoming events see http://www.visitcanberra.com.au/ . A little further away but a good day trip is the snow fields. Drive a three-hour scenic trip from Canberra to the Snowy Mountains, and discover beautiful alpine flowers, ski resorts, wild brumbies, fishing, trekking, horse riding, the snowy mountains hydro scheme and much more.
