The University of Georgia ~ Study Abroad Program

Study abroad is an enriching and eye-opening adventure, where learning extends far beyond the classroom. The experience exposes students to new ways of thinking, living, and viewing the world. Benefits include the opportunity to learn about another culture firsthand. Students can travel, fulfill major and minor coursework requirements, and develop new intellectual pursuits, skills, and perspectives.

Every year, we enjoy hosting students from the University for a couple of days, and during their stay, the students learn a little more about living in Australia, living on a farm and most importantly the joys of a BBQ and pavlova.

This week we had a wonderful visit from students, parents and teachers from the Kingold Primary School in China.

Staying for just one night, our guests were able to experience a little bit of life on the farm, feeding the horses and the chickens, playing with Travis and Kaylee, swimming in the pool, and spotting kangaroos.

The farmstay was the perfect space to spread out with young children

‘The farmstay was the perfect space to spread out with young children.

The kids loved watching the horses, playing in the  pool, feeding the chooks and dancing on the lawns.

The clawfoot baths were a treat for us all. Plenty of room for cups of tea or BBBQs on the large deck.
We had a great family reunion at Magpie Creek. ……..  Naomi and Family
