We have 3 exceptionally affectionate border collies, Minno 2 1/2 years old and the sisters Minnie and Gwennie each 1 year old. They are well trained and love playing with each other, other dogs and people. We live in the rural area in Bass Coast Shire (Gippsland) – 1:45 hrs South-East from Melbourne, above Wonthaggi (15 min drive) and due east from Philip Island (25 min drive). The house is remarkable for its uninterrupted 180-degree view over hilly pastureland with a few cows here and there. We even see the ocean in the far distance, we love it :-). Our "farm" (we have 40 acres of land) is comfortable and the house new (9 years old) and we have a beautiful swimming pool which can be heated if desired.
The house is perfect for a family of 5 (master bedroom, 2 guestrooms) and is a nice holiday location. The closest beach is 15 minutes, a surf beach, Wilson's Prom is 1:20 hrs, San Remo / Philip Island is 25 min and Melbourne is 1:45 hrs of driving. The roads are quiet, perfect for cyclists.
Please note, the beach picture includes Elf who sadly has passed away since the photo was taken. This is the beach that is 15 minutes from the house.

Pets & farm animals

Minno is a beautiful 2-year-old border collie, who is wonderfully affectionate, interested in everything and very obedient. He loves play of any kind, walks (of course) and other dogs. Gwennie and Minnie, our 1-year-old sisters, absolutely admire Minno. The three of them play all day long and sleep next to and on top of each other. Minnie and Gwennie are still a bit afraid of strangers and so it will take a gentle hand and a bit of patience to gain their trust, especially with Minnie. The three of them can stay home alone for 6-8 hours without a problem. We also have 5 alpacas (independent, they do not need to be attended to), one of them is a 3-months old cria. They are domesticated. Wilma, the mother, will eat carrots from your hand, while Pebbles, Bam Bam and Betty, the 3 crias (2 of them grown up now) will sniff you. Fred, the father will keep a respectful distance. We are also agisting 35 cows on our 40 acres of land.
