Your hosts, Liz and Gary have lived at Trilby since their marriage in 1981.
They have four children... Alex - 31, having completed her Masters in Architecture at Sydney Uni in 2009, worked for a number of years in Sydney before opening her own firm in 2013; Design Tribe Dubbo- Dubbo's only dedicated Architectural practice; Tom - 30, is still living his dream - flying choppers part time (mainly bushfire/resuce work) and home on the station at other times; AJ - 21 this year, following a year back-packing Europe, is now into his second year at University, studying for a Bachelor of Construction Management, and Will - 19 this year, completed his schooling last year in Armidale, where he combined normal studies with a diesel mechanics school based traineeship, is now Jackarooing at Newcastle Waters in the Northern Territory for a year or so.
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, summiting Mt Kilimanjaro in Tanzania in 2011 (as well as living with a local family in a fishing village in Senegal, West Africa... studying drum and dance), hiking the Larapinta Trail, west of Alice Springs in 2012, an awesome 'Mummy-Daughter' journey through Morocco in 2013 and remote hikes in the Antil-Atlas mountains on the edge of Morocco's Sahara Desert and the stunningly beautiful Simien Mountains in Ethiopia last year - is heading to Nepal in November this year with Alex and AJ, hiking to Everest Base Camp/Goyko Lakes, if the knees don't pack it in before then.
34 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.
