Tanya and Craig have recently acquired Angophora Paddock and they live on the property.
Tanya is passionate about sustainability and has spent most of her career working with industry and governments on environmental management, economic development, social impact and community engagement. Her love for nature, travel, food, culture and life-enriching experiences has been sated having lived and worked around the world. After a 30 year hiatus, Tanya has recently returned to the area in which she grew up.
Craig trained as a classical dancer and started his career working for the Australian Opera and performed in musicals touring nationally. A career change saw Craig in the automotive industry, running his own retail business for ten years. His interest in cars and thirst for adrenaline saw him compete in rallying at State level as both a driver and navigator. More recently Craig has become a keen cyclist and is obsessed with cycling up hills.
In 2019, Tanya and Craig quit their corporate jobs to take a gap-year, they purchased a small campervan in France and spent 9 months touring Europe. This gave them the opportunity to explore regional food and beverage specialities and spend time with artisans learning production techniques and skills. They also spent time hiking and cycling interesting trails; always searching for the offbeat and unique.
Tanya and Craig are trained wildlife rescuers.
