  1. My wife Irene(Ex-SRN) and myself Colin(Production Engineering Manager)are both retired Scots with family in Melbourne and Sydney,we are keen golfers with more enthusiasm than skill but we do enjoy it(Our club is Curlewis which is 15 mins drive from home).Our other main interest is gardening which althgough it is not a large garden it did need alot of work when we came into it 5 years ago,but know we have it reasonabley under control and we can arrange that it is tended in our absence.We like the occasional visit to the movies to which we can walk to and from , have a meal with a glass of wine without having to worry about driving home.
    Our daughter and family live about 45 mins away and if required would be available for any help and advice.The neighbours are quiet and courteous without being overwhelmingly familiar.
    Irene does volunteering work at the local hospital (which by the way is an excellent,spotlessly clean and efficient large hospital,there are also other excellent private hospitals in the area)and I enjoy DIY in my garage.Our car is a Subaru Forrester 2.5 XL and about three years old,we would be willing to consider use on a reciprocal basis with suitable insurance arrangements being made.





We live in a quite quiet area of Geelong but we are only ten to fifteen minutes walk to main shopping center of Geelong,similarly to beach side,Royal Geelong Yachting Club,Botanical Gardens,East Geelong Golf Club,Bowling Club,Croquet Club,Tennis Courts,about 6mins drive to Kardinia Stadium home ground of Geelong Aussie rules football club (Cats)who are in the top echelon of this in Australia.
Geelong is the 7th or 8th largest city in Australia but it feels more like a comfortable large country town with excellent shopping facilities both Mall type and traditional high street and not just confined to city center but at various locations around the town.It is also the gateway to Surfing beaches including the famous Bells Beach and also the approach to the spectacular Great Ocean Road along the souther edge of Victoria.
We are approximately 54 km from the center of Melbourne ,about 1 hours drive via the Princes Highway, a newly upgraded three lane dual carriage all the way to Melbourne City Center,alternatively there is a regular all day train service from Geelong again into the city center of Melbourne this takes about 1 hour also.
Avalon airport is 15 /20 minutes drive from our house and offers many budget priced flights to Sydney,Brisbane,and other domestic destinations in Australia.
Geelong is an attractive and lively place with the Geelong Arts center and Theatre complex putting national and international events and drama on regularly.There are many wineries in the area
