"Kanimbla or Little Hartley off Coxs River Road is the most serene place in NSW within 2 hrs of Sydney"

KANIMBLA / LITTLE HARTLEY; How you wish your suburb was; everyone is friendly, waves a hand as your car drives past - even if they don't know who you are, yet, as everyone gets to meet everyone after a while.
Needed a builder - house reno urgent - no problem, builder over fence on a job happy to quote, and reasonable, and stuck to budget, and time, and did a great job, thanks PB
From the day we moved in our neighbours were looking out for us. Hot water stopped working, no problem, closest neighbour happened to be an ex-electrician and popped over right away and fixed it - for nothing! Insisted, thanks WM
Invited to a lunch with all of the surrounding neighbours so we could meet everyone, thanks J&C
Needed fence fixed, no problem, neighbour fixed for reasonable rates, thanks FC
Needed a handy man (higher level skill than city husband) No problem, he fixed everything while we weren't even there.
Needed a plumber - no problem, neighbour let him in for us, thanks WM
Needed alpacas put in the yard for shearing as couldn't be there, no problem - friendly neighbour got it done, thanks C&J
Alpaca died and needed a burial - no problem, neighbour behind us did the job with his tractor, thanks CJ
I only hope I can live long enough to repay all my neighbour's good deeds.
Oh, and apart from the people who have morals, and values and you could trust with your life, there's
Nature, oh those cliffs lit up at sunset, and cockatoos and parrots, the sound of the bush at night, the space, the clean air, our own water from our own roof, heating from our own timber, hot water from our timber boiler, veges from the garden, fruit from the orchard.
Then there's the facilities; few and select but fabulous; the Nursery, Tea House, Wood fired pizza, Old Colonial building with a great ploughman's lunch out the back, Handy local store with hardware - wine - and manure - all in the one place!
