It's not often you'll find Gary anywhere but on the station ... (he claims work is his hobby), but Liz does enjoy the challenges and unique cultural experiences offered with adventure travel. Having thoroughly enjoyed the very moving and incredibly challenging Kokoda Track in 2009, she has since summited Mt Kilimanjaro, and hiked the Larapinta Trail west of Alice Springs, the Antil-Atlas mountains on the edge of Morocco's Sahara Desert, the stunningly beautiful Simien Mountains in Ethiopia, Mount Everest Base Camp  and the Annapurna's in Nepal, the Lakakhi region of northern India, the Milford Track in New Zealand and the Al Hajar mountains in Oman. Mountains and deserts are her favourite haunt - she's off to hike the Nepali/Indian border region this year and then who knows where, as long as the body keeps up!!

37 odd years on, Liz and Gary still love their outback lifestyle at Trilby.

They have put their heart and soul into the property - come share it with them.
