City couple sold up life in Melbourne to take on the beloved Border Inn Hotel, Apsley

Mr Bourke and Ms Bourke were looking for a change when they stumbled on Apsley and sold up their life in Melbourne.  While Mr Bourke had shown other properties to Ms Bourke before, Apsley was different.  “I just liked [the people here] a lot. They were very easy to talk to. I think we all just clicked,” Ms Bourke says.

“We go for a walk here and it ends up taking us two hours because we talk to everybody.  I actually feel quite emotional when I say that. I think we’re going to make a lot of good friends here.”  The move is their transition to retirement, and an opportunity to spend more time together.
