About me

Introduction A long-time resident of North Queensland. Australian citizen since 1959. I was born in Freiburg (Black Forest) Germany and grew up in Bischoffingen, a picturesque village on the Kaiserstuhl and a well-known wine growing area, on the upper Rhine, which is the German/French border. I migrated to Australia in 1954, with my wife Karola and 14 months old daughter Sonja. We have lived in Yorkeys Knob Qld since 1971. Two further children were born in Australia, Doris was born in Coffs Harbour NSW and Peter in Yarram Victoria
