Pretty simple really. Space, fresh air, the ability to walk down the main street and know almost everyone and the accessibility to incredible fresh produce and stunning wines. Sure I love a big city fix every now and then, but I love coming home to a real Aussie town.
On the down side, there are factors that are affecting our community such as loss of retail business as internet and online shopping has presented itself, the higher cost of employing, the proposed container deposit scheme for wine bottles. The reality is that rural life is changing and as much as I love technology and innovation I am also passionate about preserving our rural culture and community. So SHOP LOCAL if you can!!
