When I was five my mum and dad decided to leave the northern beaches of Sydney and move to Tasmania. These days we call it ‘tree-changing’ but they thought themselves ‘alternative lifestylers’. This all sounds terribly middle-class but in truth my parents were facing a series of personal and financial issues and, as my mother put it, ‘had to get out of the rat race’.
