"A beautiful small town, everybody does know each other and we just call one another neighbours"

The scenery and wildlife that you get to live with is incredible. i am a teenager who has grown up here and it has been difficult because theres no public transport unless you drive roughly 15km to get on a bus, but i would not change that for anything. i love that i got brought up here as i am much more appreciative of what i have then i believe i would be if i had have been brought up near everything.
I love that you can just look out the window and theres always a lovely paddock, beautiful trees, animals and dams.
I wouldn't change it for anything because loving out here has taught me that getting dirty or having to bush wee or getting mud in your face wont kill you. having bomb fires and looking after animals and paddocks etc has really helped my knowledge of how to live in the country and how to love the peace and quiet compared to trains and trucks going past your window every night.
Pros
  • lots of kand for farming
  • neighbourns and everyone in the town are lovely, and everyone knows each other
Cons
  • at least a 15km drive to supermarket or any shops.
  • no public transport

DavidC2 Could not agree more. I spent the first 25 years of my life in Macclesfield. Whilst most teenagers learnt to be entertained by video games and shopping centres, I learnt to appreciate the peace and quiet, get out on the fields, look after our pet animals, and appreciate the beautiful flora and fauna surrounds. I am so grateful my parents raised me in such a place. If there are any parents out there looking to find a place to raise their young family, hoping their children will learn to respect their environment, develop a unique and honest personality, and not be scared by a little dirt or an animal (which so many kids these days are :S), I would be seriously thinking about starting here.
