"We were dreaming of a trip flying around Australia for years. We landed here and found it even better than we were expecting, great landscapes, an oasis in the desert, two brilliant and charismatic persons. Julie being the artist and the soul. Bruce being the genius beneath a productive and loved land. Here everything smells of happiness. For pilots it is a dream with a well maintained airstrip. How happy we've been here.....I feel sad to leave."
