NLV is renowned for its world-class resort facilities
Imagine waking up in the morning to soft sunlight spilling through your window. It’s Saturday, which means there is a Tai Chi class in the Clubhouse. You head over, picking up a few friends along the way. After the session, everyone hangs back for a cup of tea, and you find yourself planning your next holiday while you wonder what to do for the rest of the day.
You could join the group gathering on the bowling green ready for some competition bowls. Some spectators are firing up the barbecues, and soon the smell of bacon and eggs will fill the area as breakfast is served to the gathering crowd.Enquire Now

"It takes a while to familiarise oneself with local customs and I had my fair share of making errors"
In the first six months following my arrival in Australia from the UK (at a tender age of 19), I had learnt a few of the Australian colloquialisms such as arvo, postie, pressie and bring a plate.
It takes a while to familiarise oneself with local customs and I had my fair share of making errors.
One day when out with my husband Syd, I saw a poster with comments about a Polly Farmer.
I naively asked him what type of farmer was a “Polly” one. Syd responded by laughing his head off before telling me he was a footballer. There was more to come.
Returning from our honeymoon, Syd wanted to visit his Uncle Harold who was a wheat and sheep farmer in Arrino, just out of Three Springs.
He was a cheerful, down-to-earth man and I immediately liked him.
Upon entering the house it was obvious that house cleaning was not a priority with Harold. The kitchen was full of tins of fat that he had accumulated over the years from cooking roasts!
"So began a statewide search for the perfect place to land"
Early in the morning on the 26th May, 1946 the lightning & thunder shook the cottage in Dartmouth, Devon, England, the wolves howled & I was born. Mum saw that as some sort of omen which turned out to be true. I was destined to be different. My father even spelled my name incorrectly adding an extra ‘i’ to Sandra. The result was that I can never buy a mug or pen with my name already on.
Having a love/hate relationship with my elder brother resulted in many near death experiences. Once he force fed me some sort of glitter then sprinkled it all over the outside. Poor mum had to present this glittering toddler to the hospital. The first of many visits. Moving to London didn’t change my thirst for adventure & I nearly drowned in the Regents Park canal. I tried to ‘bunk’ into the London Zoo and was caught on a branch & left hanging by my knickers. My aforementioned brother decamped the scene. I had 2 other brothers & a sister who also managed to bring chaos into my life.
Much to everyone’s surprise, not least my teacher I passed the 11+ and progressed to High school. I must have developed my social conscience here because I spent more time standing outside the headmaster’s office than actually learning anything. It was usually for standing up against bullying by classmates or teachers. However some kindred spirits remain friends to this very day.
