Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

We have a comfortable, recently renovated 4 bedroom home with well appointed kitchen, wifi internet access, digital TV, air conditioning and a lovely garden situated on ¾ acre with a beautiful outlook over the hills. We enjoy plenty of wildlife - hand-feeding wild parrots, magpies and butcher birds, and koalas and kangaroos are frequent visitors to our home and surroundings. We love our home and would care for your home as if it were our own.

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

We live just outside the small rural town of Maleny, a favourite tourist destination for visitors to South East Queensland. Maleny is situated in the scenic hinterland of the beautiful Sunshine Coast. We live in a quiet cul-de-sac with friendly neighbours who have enjoyed giving hospitality to our previous exchange families. Maleny has delightful rainforest walks, good shopping, restaurants and coffee shops, a thriving artistic community and good sporting facilities (tennis, golf, lawn bowls, croquet etc.)
We are only some 35 minutes drive from the magnificent Sunshine Coast surfing beaches and about an hour and a half by car or train from Brisbane, the capital city of Queensland. There is a very comfortable automatic 4 wheel drive Toyota Prado car available for use plus use of our bicycles.

Our home exchange - places to go and things to do while staying in our home

From our home there are pleasant rural walks to a beautiful lookout over the hills and towards the sea as well as through lush dairy country. It is a 5 minute drive to the township of Maleny, where there are good shopping facilities, lovely book shops, galleries, coffee shops, restaurants and award winning ice cream! There is a wheelchair friendly rainforest walk close to town and many more challenging rainforest walks with hills, rock pools and waterfalls. The beautiful Sunshine Coast region stretching from Caloundra ( 35 minutes drive) north to Noosa has wonderful surfing beaches, extensive markets and interesting hinterland townships. Brisbane (Queensland's capital city) with its many city attractions is 11/2 hours away by car or train. If you wish to venture further afield , there are tours available that leave from the Sunshine Coast for the beautiful World Heritage listed Fraser Island and further north it is easy to get to the southern most islands of the Great Barrier Reef.

Our Preferences

Our home exchange - here are our Preferences and House Rules

We would prefer older responsible children as we have some furniture that needs special care. Our garden is mainly self sufficient but if the weather is dry for a long time then some watering would be appreciated. We have a comprehensive" house user manual" which covers all aspects of living in and caring for our home and enjoying our area. We are open to consider any period of exchange from 2 weeks to 6 months. We can be flexible.
