About Me


My wife Deb and I live an hour's drive from Melbourne on a 20 acre (8Ha) bush property in a mudbrick house that we built ourselves. We have lots of wildlife like kangaroos, wallabies, wombats, echidnas and occasional koalas.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

We have backpacked around the world twice, to New Zealand and different parts of Australia. We are definitely budget travellers. We love meeting other travellers and have made many friends over the years during our trips.


I like outdoor pursuits (especially surfing) and sports (especially basketball). Both Deb and I like visiting wild places. Deb likes yoga and photographing birds, butterflies and orchids in their natural environment.

Teach, Learn, Share

We have travelled to every part of Australia and we have lived in remote aboriginal communities, so we have lots to share about our own country.
