'Our family loves living in the Nyngan area. We’ve got all the advantages of living in a country town but also the perks of city living. Our kids are very sports-minded so there’s loads of things for them to do. If they’re not swimming in the river, they’re playing footy or soccer. It’s a very healthy, happy life.'
