To sleep: perchance to dream: ay, there's the rub....

Now wouldn't that be nice. A house in the country. Who would like to make the run from the city to a place, not to far from civilisation. Somewhere where you still get broadband and cable. A couple of miles away they have cafe lattes and news from the big city with coloured liftout.

Yes if you are going to move you have to take some of it with you. But fret not, baristas, telecom technicians, hair stylists and even people like me, designers are weighing up the cost of commute. Paring down their exposure in the city with a quick flight home to huddle for a week before making the pilgrimage again.

Why not when you see houses with whole suburbs of lush tropical forest attached for the same price as a semi in the inner suburbs.

My latest yearning.

Our Property Pages :: RURAL: "Designated high conservation value, this 10 acre rainforest property boasts absolute peace, only 7 mins from Mullumbimby. The 4 separate s/c dwellings are a duplex-style family home - 2 adjacent pavilion-style dwellings, each with 2 bedrooms & 1 bathroom; plus 2 completely separate income-generating cabins. Private swimming hole in Wilsons River.

When you see something like that you wonder what draws us to and traps us within the deadly jaws of the city.

Time to bust down the gates.

This area is beautiful and it is beautifully low on LOMBARD's (Lots Of Money But A Real Dickhead) from Sydney for now. Please don't encourage them to come here in a convoy of BMW's and fill the place with boutique cafe's!!!
