After graduating in civil engineering in the 1960s I was initially engaged in engineering design and construction in New Zealand and Australia. Subsequent accountancy studies and qualification as a CPA led to project management roles covering technical, commercial and financial aspects.
We moved to Melbourne in January 1966 and later transferred to Christmas Island for four years before spending a further four years in Cairns. After leaving Far North Queensland at the end of 1974 we lived in Sydney for twenty years before moving to the NSW Central Coast. We recently sold up there with a view to relocating to Queensland.
Some years ago we bought a second home in Levin, New Zealand, more-or-less on a whim. This is currently our principal residence.
Levin is a small town, population 20,000, centrally located on the main highway just 90 kilometres north of Wellington. Life here can be described with one word … convenient.
My wife, Lois, and I live two blocks from the centre of town and can walk to supermarkets, post office, library, cinema and swimming pool ... but I do have to drive to Levin's excellent golf course.
Current principal address: 58 Queen Street, Levin 5510 New Zealand
Australian contact address: 2 Tootell Street, Bundaberg, Queensland 4670 Australia
