What is your job?

Our Job is the day-to-day run­ning and main­te­nance of the Myrtle­ford Hol­i­day Park as res­i­dent man­agers. What brought you to this role? We started as re­lief car­a­van park and mo­tel man­ager’s to see Aus­tralia 2017. As we went along we found we were get­ting too much work and very lit­tle time to ex­plore each area. As we had been work­ing as re­lief for Sus­tain­able Park Hold­ings for a num­ber of months and they kindly of­fered us this po­si­tion which we jumped at. Sus­tain­able Park Hold­ings are won­der­ful to work for and they run ex­cel­lent parks where they not only look af­ter their guests but the com­mu­nity as well.

What pre­vi­ous jobs have you had?

Stu­art was a TAFE teacher and I was ad­min­is­tra­tion and ac­counts as well as on­site man­ager of a Wagga mo­tel be­fore we started our new life do­ing this work full-time.

How do you come from orig­i­nally?

Be­fore we be­gan to travel we lived in Al­bury. Stu­art was raised in the Mitta Val­ley and I orig­i­nated from West Wya­long, NSW be­fore liv­ing in Wagga Wagga for more than 20 years.

What do you en­joy love about liv­ing here?

We love this area, the peo­ple we’ve met, the moun­tains and the scenic back­ground we are sur­rounded by. We have spent many week­ends car­a­van­ning and camp­ing up in the moun­tains and this area. We are both from small coun­try towns and like the com­mu­nity mind­ed­ness small towns have and would dearly like to be­come part of this com­mu­nity.

What is an is­sue that Myrtle­ford faces?

As we’ve only been here since Septem­ber 10, it’s not right to say if Myrtle­ford has is­sues how­ever we do be­lieve that Myrtle­ford and its busi­nesses have huge po­ten­tial to im­press our guests and trav­ellers and if any­thing we think we can as­sist to pro­mote this area and have more peo­ple stop for longer in the town which would en­hance busi­nesses and in­dus­try.

If you could get any­one in the

There are so many great things to show off about Myrtle­ford and sur­rounds we’d have to show them all of it. Who would we show, well that’s easy ev­ery sin­gle guest we can as we are lov­ing pro­mot­ing this area. What is your ideal hol­i­day? We love trav­el­ling in our van to new places and our ideal hol­i­days have been and still are see­ing as much of Aus­tralia as we can.
