About us

Your Hosts ‍

We both originally hail from the UK, Tara from England, and Ian from Scotland. We met whilst working onboard Cruise Ships – travelling around the world experiencing different cultures and visiting many countries. We in fact met on the original “Love Boat” cruise ship – The Island Princess; fell in love and the rest, as they say is history……A real shipboard romance!

Since moving to Australia over 20+ years ago we have also travelled extensively around Australia. With the sea in our blood, we have always lived near water, whether it be the sea or lake. Here at Moogerah, we wake up every day to these stunning water and mountain views. What could be better?

We have two children, who whilst away studying are substituted by our 2 faithful pups – Muttley and Pipi – a couple of friendly Labradoodles who are always up for a pat and a hello from our guests. You may from time to time see them around the property. They will be your friend for life if you throw a ball for them too. **We live on the 19-acre property so are close by if you need us, but not in your face so you can enjoy the privacy and serenity of your country getaway. 

We are keen to share this beautiful part of the world we now call home with our guests. Lonely Planet named the Scenic Rim as one of the top 10 destinations in 2022, so come and discover why!

Cheers Tara & Ian
