Small town appeal
For me, home is in Stanthorpe, a small Australian country town through and through. I returned last October to celebrate my dad’s 75th birthday. I rarely go back, so it was fantastic to be able to spend a weekend with my whole family. You don’t necessarily appreciate Stanthorpe’s beauty until you move away. I feel really lucky to have felt completely safe in my hometown – I can swim in a creek, get out of the house for fresh fruit and vegetables, or go hunting and dirt biking on a whim. You can’t get this security in a city.
