    Welcome Cam!

    Gympie and surrounds is top spot. Sounds like you have a really good base to start with fertile soil, dam, practical skills like butchery, and you can obviously make things (like your chicken house) - you're going to love acreage living I bet. Lots of hard work but fun hard :)

    We like chatting about all the stuff you mentioned (including mushies) so start a thread, or ask questions, and feel free to answer some too. Is your avatar a pic of your property?

    Welcome Cam, a dam would be handy! Look forward to hearing more about your property.

    Yes, a warm welcome Cam.
    Sounds like you're living the dream to me.
