Thanks for the pics Bix, it's bringing back some great memories of my time up there.

Hope you were careful at the croc farm, would think a lion would make a nice dietry change for the crocs.

Post Re: They say paradise doesn't exist

Great pics' I'm just viewing them at the mo'

We are still undecided on where to settle in OZ, and following some of the threads on this forum, Secret Carins has been brought to our attention. Prior to that I would have never considered it. I just assumed the climate would be too unbearable. But now I'm a little more open minded about the possibility.

So I was just wondering how long have you been there for? and how would you rate it as a place to live with family(2 kids). Pros Cons? What areas are the good schools in? anything that can help really.

Great pics, and the place looks lovely, ...... O bl**dy decisions, decisions....

Pristine is probably the word.....and there's the Barron River running by the side of the station on the way to the Falls.
