The North-East of Victoria has been my home for 30 years, and even though I have ventured further afield at times, I am always drawn back home by the stunning beauty and ease of living it offers. Brendon and I reside on a lifestyle property in Bright with our daughter Imogen and our much loved menagerie of pets.
