Rural Property

We are a rural property situated in the middle of farming land, there are normal farming practices going on around us which may include the farmer rounding up his sheep at 7 am in the morning, or the sound of hay harvesters or irrigators in a paddock nearby working.  99% of the time all you can hear is the sound of the birds wings as they fly past but occasionally the peace is broken by the fact that we live in the country.

We have planted and continue to plant to encourage bird life on the property, we have a great mix of native birds now visiting.

Being rural also means if you leave the lights on at night and windows open you may get insects, just something to be aware of, we do not have any issues with insects but you may be visited by moths etc if you do leave lights and windows open at night.

There are ponds on the property to encourage bird life, although they are fenced please be aware of them if you have children
