Dave and Tami with their two children Mia and Dean have been part of the Homestay Program at Lexis, Brisbane for three years. The family live in a beautiful home in the suburb of Woolloongabba which is close to the bus way and only 15 minutes from Lexis English School.
This picture was taken of their children Dean and Mia with Haruna their homestay student. They spent time together taking in the view at Mt Coot-tha before they said good-bye to Haruna.
The family packed a picnic lunch to enjoy on the mountain situated only 15 minutes from the CBD, this 1,500-hectare bush land reserve is a great escape from the city.
Mt Coot-tha features open eucalyptus forest and, by day, is home to many small forest birds as well as parrots and cockatoos. At night it comes alive with possums, gliders, tawny frogmouths and owls. It really is getting back to nature…but in the middle of a city.
