I come from Dortmund in Germany, and lived in Sylt and Hamburg for 7 years before moving to Australia. Brian and I met while travelling overseas more than 20 years ago. The first time we came travelling through the Daintree was in 1981.
We came back three times to the Daintree, before the track to Bloomfield was opened in 1984. Brian suggested buying land here when we were living in Darwin and in 1994 we bought a block of Daintree rainforest land, covered mostly with 50 year old rainforest regrowth. The block borders the Daintree National Park, has a creek and is less than 2 km from the beach, where we launch our boat to go fishing on the reef.
In 1996 we bought the house ‘next’ door, which seemed to be perfect as a B & B. Brian has improved the house beautifully over the years, and guests feel very welcome and relaxed here.
I enjoy working in the gardens and deliver fresh organically grown, Asian type produce, garlic chives and tropical heliconia flowers to local businesses. I am a qualified chef and have a strong catering management background. In my spare time I love snorkelling and sunbathing at the beach at Cow Bay.
Brian is an electrician by trade with a vast experience in domestic, construction, mining, and is now running his own business from home. He loves going out in the boat fishing, and we get to eat some really fresh fish!!!
Over the years we have lived in Brisbane, Rockhampton, Darwin, Townsville and Cow Bay. Brian is from Ballarat and was a long time resident of Melbourne and Sydney.
With our local knowledge as a background, we are happy to assist you as best as we can to experience this part of North Queensland, and get the most out of your holiday with us
Looking forward to meeting you
