Hi everyone, I've spent so much time stalking this forum that I felt I really should register and say hello...

We're on a little block. Just a hectare. We didn't plan for it to become "lifestyley" we just wanted space and quiet. We've got part of the section with established bush and a stream, and on the other half have built, planted hundreds of natives and mowed a lot of paddock. Somewhere along the line things changed :D now we have two miniature horses, a flock of chickens, a developing orchard and over 30sqm of vege gardens... I'm not quite sure how that happened! But I'm glad it did!

:) the funny thing is that the bush and stream was what made me fall in love with the place, yet we've been so busy focusing on trying to transform the 'paddock with a house on it' that we just haven't been spending much time down there. Must do something about it - it's just so peaceful and soul nurturing down there...

That sounds familiar....we bought this block because of the beautiful bush block with waterfalls and wide streams...which we've probably visited about ten times in four years [:I][:I] We hope that when we've finished with the house and garden build, the shed(s) build, the fencing, the tracks, the fert and lime, the orchard, the feedlot, the veggie gardens, the weeding and erosion control that we'll get to the bush block more often:rolleyes: If we're not too old to get there!

Cheers

haha, Kate, that sounds familiar! We were thrilled with the pockets of bush and the streams on our 50 acre plot when we bought it. Still love it, but, to be perfectly honest, there's places in said bush I have never found the time to go investigate - and we've had the property for 12 years!!!

Perhaps after 'retirement"?? (shortly before we sell and move into town??)

Apparently we have a 5-acre paddock in the middle of the bush block that we have no idea how to get to :D It doesn't really matter as it's in the area to be covenanted but even so.....
