I live in Adelaide with my partner and we love spending time by the sea and river when time permits. We now have adult children who have spent many happy times at Middleton. We enjoy holidaying with our camper trailer as well as some overseas travel, but plan to see as much of Australia as we can in the future. We have always had a dog by our side and welcome special pets to stay with their owners at ‘Melba’s Place’.
