My better half has suggested purchasing a bush cabin (re onsite van) up the bush somewhere where we can get away by ourselves. Only problem is, I have no idea where to look, if anyone knows of a company that deals with this sort of stuff or could give any assistance it would be greatly appreciated.

G'day, I have just been in contact with my neighbour and I was way out with my description etc. This property of 320acres is near Mt Perry and 45min to GinGin, It has hills and valleys with a seasonal creek through the centre, phone and power passes the front of property, 10 acres suitable for a house block, very secluded. The back of property is suitable for a 4x4 vehicle, and they want $56,000 neg. They want rid of it as they now live here and are extremely happy. Actually it sounds great to me too.

Yeh Tim!! you would have to buy a jet first. hahaha. They haven't advertised this yet, so I guess at that price, it will go fast when they do, as it is going ahead up in that area because of the gold mine. JenLooking forward to the cruise and snooze years.........Retirement

G'day Jay, I have just this minute printed the DVD information that we had received, so now it will be working it all out and going from there. We had all our neighbours over for a neighbourly new year get- to- gether on Saturday night, and they still hadn't put in into any agents hands. So if you want to get in touch with them I will be able to make arrangements for you. JenLooking forward to the cruise and snooze years.........Retirement

Not sure what you're after. If it's a bush cabin manufacturer have you tried the yellow pages or internet? If it's a piece of dirt then once again the internet or real estate agents in the area you like.

Tim,
Spend a few weekends going to different places, try not to make it more than a 3 hour drive though, if you do weekender will become too hard to duck off to and probably won't get used, have friends who fell into that trap. When you find a place you really like, look around in the local Estate Agents, prices not as inflated as some of those find property anywhere agents. I did that 15 years ago and have now moved in permanently, even found a job locally in the same field I worked previously.
