House Sit near Mt Barker

With Christmas coming on we were having trouble finding somewhere to stop over the holiday season, so whilst I was browsing The Grey Nomads site I came upon a house sit, so applied and within a day or two we had a new abode!

Our campsite at Mt Barker house sit

Mt Barker is only 50+ kilometres from Albany, so handy for retail therapy! It has worked out well for us and the owners. 100 acres including a vineyard, house and beautiful gardens. Our camp spot is under some old shady trees which has been handy since the temperatures have been up and down in the extreme the past few weeks. We have been able to sample a few cellar doors in the area and we find Mt Barker a lovely town with friendly locals.

Christmas and New Year came and went without much fan fare and we will soon be venturing out further to do some day trips to see the sights in this region….more to come.
