Used by the Curra Ukulele Naturist Troubadors for their weekly meetings - this alone is a unique selling point.
Curra is a wonderful location - at night you can hear Duelling Banjos playing, during the day can be shooting and skinning kangaroos or digging for gold.
"A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse (defined as a liberal gift) from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, followed always by a dictatorship. The average age of the world's greatest civilizations has been 200 years." - attributed to Alexander Fraser Tytler, (October 15, 1747 - January 5, 1813) a Scottish-born British lawyer and writer.
i know there are loads country wide .
it actually can increase the resale value as you dont pay for sewage . the water is very much cheaper. but rain water can be free.
i have a small rainwater supply . shame just before i lived here the last owner went on mains sewage . once on cant come off . still have the cesspit in my garden . also use solar from the trucks inverter to power items in the house in summer.
there really is a trend for not having mains .
i could easily manage without mains water ,sewage or even electric .
i do have an lpg tank in my garden for gas.
our local pub for years ran off a big gennie in a shed .
in the country it really is happening .
when we lived in Portugal my then 14 yr old daughter dug out for a cess pit in one day,had the brickwork in the following day and piped and in use the next. water from a small spring, more from rainwater collection on the cisterna and off the roof , leccy from a genny or oil lights, woodburner for heating .
whole new set of chores , but not a bad life !
