Originally from England, I have now lived in Owhango for over 10 years and my husband Mark joined me here 4 years ago. I run 2 massage therapy clinics, one in Taumarunui and the other from home in Owhango.
Our village is on the edge of the Tongariro Forest Park, one of the 5 kiwi sanctuaries in New Zealand. We also have the beautiful Ohinetonga Scenic Reserve right on our doorstep, which has some classic examples of New Zealand native bush and our unique bird life, including the endangered whio (blue duck). There are several walking tracks through the Reserve, which showcase the local flora and fauna.
Mark and I are very involved with the local volunteer conservation group Owhango Alive which helps to preserve the bush with plantings, weed and predator control, track maintenance etc.
We love to introduce visitors to our precious outdoors, walk the tracks, and maybe share a meal and conversation with people from all walks of life.
We have both travelled in and outside of New Zealand and both feel that it is always the people we meet along the way that makes a place special.
Gardening, cooking and being with friends keeps our life in a very pleasant balance.
