The Original home of Florrie and Byron Wilson pre 1939. This house was completely destroyed during the 1939 bush fires which raged through the Upper Murray. Byron was badly burnt whilst trying to save the house. Water was in very short supply combined with the use of wet bags the job was impossible. Byron then sheltered in a 44 gallon drum of water whilst waiting for help to arrive and to ease the pain associated with his severe burns. Florrie and 1st born Keith sheltered in the near by creek. Imagine the situation,no phone,limited water and no fire fighting equipment as we have now.
With a tear in my eye I bit farewell to our guests Matt, Nick,Rebecca and Colleen. Willy and I can truthfully say we have not had any guests we would not wish to see again which is wonderful..Occassionally tho’ people enter our lives who make us realize life is not to be taken for granted… Colleen ..you are an inspiration to us….With life throwing you an uneasy path to endure you smile,joke and embrace the next adventure. The love and respect your adult children show you is heart warming. We look forward to your visit next year for your 82nd birthday. Stay as well as you can lovely lady and cheers to Matt Nick and Bec. The mountains beckon you….

Hi everyone… been a little slack on this front…hopefully 2017 will see better from me. Past 12 months on the farm has been a little interesting to say the least, however, thankfully we have all survived. The down turn in the Dairy Industry changed the lives and minds of family members especially our son Keslie and his wife Sarah Jane who now operate the enterprise.
If not for our lovely, diverse guests at Willys life for Graham (Willy) and myself would have not been as joyful.We have met the most wonderful folk, enjoyed their company, laughs,sometimes tears and life stories. Many a drink was shared on the deck overlooking the magnificent Corryong Valley. All arrive not too sure about just what they are coming too. Thankfully all seem to depart having enjoyed the experience. Willy and I wave fond farewell ,with a tear in our eye, to newly found friends.
Grahams beautiful faithful friend Sophie girl.
