To celebrate our good friend Matthew’s birthday we’re headed up the coast to the peaceful lakeside village of Tanilba Bay. His family own a beautiful and very spacious house facing onto the water and its prime for the most perfect sunrises, relaxed afternoon chats over a glass of wine and extensive board gaming into the small hours.


A short 2.5 hour drive out of Sydney, Tanilba Bay for all it’s calm and open spaces feels like a complete world away!

Generally a big group of us head up and spend the time sharing laughs, a lot of beer, hearty meals and big walks along the lake front. Every single time we go I am absolutely convinced we’ll have to buy a house like theirs one day and while away our twilight years in peaceful small town bliss. That’s one for the wishlist 🙂
