I was a twenty-something traveller, working my way around Australia, when I came through Oxford Landing. That was 30 years ago, and I never left.

Aside from work, I am privileged to be married to the woman of my dreams, the woman I met when I first came to Oxford Landing. I absolutely love living in Waikerie, with the majestic River Murray as our back drop, and our family keep active with fishing, canoeing, picnicking, house boating, and yabbying. I also spend a good deal of time golfing, so much that I am now the president of the delightful Waikerie Golf Club.
I’m proud of Oxford Landing, and I am happy to be part of a great team of ambassadors. Our venue for BBQs is unparalleled, and I have honed my cooking skills to perfection so if you find yourself in the neighbourhood …
