Gary is very hard to get off the station, commenting work is his hobby, but Liz enjoys the challenges of remote area hiking; which she likens to 'physical meditation' – having tackled the Kokoda Track, Mt Kilimanjaro, the Larapinta Trail, The Anti-Atlas Mountains in Morocco, the stunningly beautiful Simien Mountains in Ethiopia, Mt Everest Base Camp with Alex and AJ, the Indian Himalayas in Ladakh, Northern India, the Milford track in New Zealand, The Annapurna’s in Nepal (Nepal is just one of those countries you’ll long to return to after your first visit), the Al Hajar mountains of Oman among and the Singalila Ridge bordering Nepal and India among others. This year? .. Liz's week long hike around Wadi Rum and Petra in Jordan has been abandoned due to Covid 19 travel restrictions, so she plans to do some of the Bibbulmun Track in WA instead.

39 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.
