Triple T Mum

I am a busy mum of four kids, ranging from a teen, to a preschooler and toddler twins. I love to share our family life, activities with the kids and ideas for making the mayhem seem less overwhelming.

What's the best part of raising a family in Australia?

I love raising my family in Australia because there are so many amazing opportunities available for our children as they learn and grow into adulthood. The Australian lifestyle is another huge factor. We live a short walking distance from the beach and top quality surfing beaches are only a short drive away. The weather is a Mediterranean climate, we can spend most of the year outside playing and enjoying the garden and the natural environment.

In what ways is Australia unique from other places you've lived or traveled?

I have visited the UK mainly and I have found it to be unique in several ways. The number one difference I found was the sky and sun. In Australia the sky is so big and you can see into great distances. The sky felt very close in the UK. I missed the sun in the UK! As beautiful and wonderful it was to experience snow and real cold, I missed the sun after a while.

What do your kids love most about living in Australia?

Outdoors! We have daily adventures in our natural environment. From visiting the park, to walks along the beach and climbing over sand dunes. There are so many activities that kids can be a part of and getting outdoors is a major part of each one.
