Holiday homes in Australia

A big thanks to my boss for inviting us down to Fairhaven for the Labour day weekend. We’ve had a big weekend of sand, sea, fresh berries and beautiful weather. When you add the following view from the balcony, you can’t get much better or much more Australian than this.

It’s got me thinking about holiday homes. If we bought one, where would we choose? I grew up on the coast, and I certainly feel at home here but is there a place anywhere on the Australian coast where you could live without neighbours on all sides?

As I look inland, I wonder whether an isolated cottage in the hills would suit me better? A bike track or two, a lake to go swimming in. A book and a glass of wine. Almost perfect, right?
