$1.2m expected for songwriter’s home
THE longtime Mount Ku-ring-gai home of the late country music singer Geoff Mack is being sold.
Mack became famous for writing the 1962 hit I’ve Been Everywhere. He bought the home shortly after for £650. There are now more than 130 versions of the song.
He died last year and the home is being sold by his widow, Tabbi.
The five-bedroom house has a separate garage with a second storey. It is being advertised as a project for a builder or renovator.
McGrath Hornsby agent Nick Berman has a price guide of $1.2 million to $1.3 million.
Mack’s musical career kicked off in World War II, when he was an RAAF aircraft mechanic in Borneo.
Once his talent was recognised he was seconded to entertain the troops along with visiting stars.
