Our Backyard Anglesea & Torquay

Without fail every year, when everyone leaves the coast from
summer holidays, we have a burst of super-hot weather. I always feel so sad for
kids heading to back to school on a 40-degree day! I did thoroughly enjoy going
for a swim last night after work, jumping in that divine water swimming until
after 8pm seems like such a special treat!

The Anglesea property market is also … Continue Reading »

LORNE – HERE AND THERE

The last day of January and its fair to say that many are
beginning to return to “more normal” routines. Children have returned to
school, most city based work places are now “business as usual” and for many
locals it’s a great time to “take a deep breath”. I like many others in the
tourism industry have worked the past 30 days … Continue Reading »

LORNE – HERE AND THERE

Happy Australia Day long weekend and I gotta say it – where
has the month of January gone! Like most other Lorne business operators whom
have worked every day since Boxing Day, this weekend signals the final book end
of the peak holiday period. With students returning to school next week and February
“opening its arms”, it’s a great time of the … Continue Reading »

Our Backyard – Aireys Inlet

I love a sunburnt country

A land of sweeping plains

Of ragged mountain ranges

Of droughts and flooding rains.

As many of you will know this is an extract from Dorothea
Mackellar’s famous poem, My Country. Written in 1908 (long before climate
experts were telling us about climate change) it refers to amongst other
things, the extremes of Australian … Continue Reading »

LORNE – HERE AND THERE

Seldom
will a year deliver “ups and downs” like we experienced in 2019 and a
“snap-shot commentary” would go something like – disastrous first half of the
year but came home with the “spinnaker flying”, worst transactional January in
the history of our company, new record residential home price set for Lorne and
holiday accommodation bookings stronger than ever.

Our Backyard Anglesea & Torquay

This time of year, I just love having friends come and stay
and enjoy some time on the coast, relaxing & appreciating our stunning
environment. I also really love spending that quality time together and at the
end of the day when I get home from work, they have prepared a delicious meal and
hand me a chilled beverage. As we all sat around enjoying each others company
on New Years Eve, we … Continue Reading »

LORNE – HERE AND THERE

Happy New Year! 2020 is well and truly underway with the catastrophic
wild fires burning out of control in northern coastal Victoria and New South
Wales dominating all major news bulletins. The tragic loss of life and huge
volume of residential home loss, in excess of 1,000, paints one of the darkest
periods in Australian wild fire history. To hear that a … Continue Reading »
