Burrawang, NSW, Australia

There's even a bus stop in front of the cafe. Maybe on Sundays there aren't any buses, this is why people parked their cars there.

Caroline and Matthew were with us last Sunday, July 27th. Caroline offered to drive us to the highlands. Caroline and Matthew were sitting in the front, so Peter and I could relax in the back. Caroline managed very well to drive all of us up MacQuarie Pass in our little car. We were aiming for a village called Burrawang, where Peter and I had been some time ago. We had quite liked this historical little place and were happy we could go there for another visit.

Here we had a cup of coffee and some cake.

Here is what I googled about Burrawang and Wildes Meadow:

“Burrawang is a village in the Southern Highlands of New South Wales, Australia in Wingecarribee Shire. According to the 2011 Australian census, Burrawang’s population was 238”

“Wildes Meadow is a hamlet village in the Southern Highlands of New South Wales, Australia, in Wingecarribee Shire. Due to its location, it does not receive many passers by, and so the tourism industry has suffered as a result.”

Now, if ever we had the idea to relocate to one of these places, just seeing what is on offer for buying would make us give up this idea quick smart. The problem is, that in order to live in one of these places we would have to invest millions which certainly we do not have. Still, even if we cannot live there it is within our reach to visit these places. Actually, this is good enough for me. I am not complaining, not at all.

A charming country cottage idyllically set on 27 acres of serene landscape, now doesn’t this sound lovely? Well, I can keep dreaming about places like this, can’t I? However, I know it is just a dream!

Maybe this is a good way to make a living if you live in this area.

To be a House and PET Sitter? Maybe this is a good way to make a living in this area.

In June 1985 Peter had also done this 8 km FUN RUN.

      Hi Peter, I just added to this post your certificate of that 8 km fun run. This fun run took place on the 9th of June 1985 and you did it in 32.37 minutes. Apparently you had the number 20.
      I remember we had Caroline with us at the time. She was only six at the time and you had just turned 50! ๐Ÿ™‚

        Twenty-nine years ago, it seems like yesterday. Now the whole world knows that I’m an old man. ๐Ÿ™‚

    The house price is a bit out of my budget range but the situation sounds idyllic, especially with all that land, wonder how the weather would be there today.

      Thanks for commenting, Ian. Yes, I think it looks idyllic, but why does it have to cost that much? I guess we should have bought land there thirty or forty years ago!
      Cheers,
      Uta ๐Ÿ™‚
