It takes a lot to impress me so when a company does approach me with the opportunity to do one of their tours I warn them they’d better be prepared to impress. I’ve had a lot to do with Dreamscape Tours over the years and it was great to finally find the time to go on one of their Yarra Valley Wine Tours. Continue reading

Burwood Real Estate Bargain

There’s nothing like owning your own home.

My Bond Loans QLD

I have a couple of retail stores across the Gold Coast. We do pretty good business most of the time and we’ve been able to grow really steadily over the last five years.
