Hello and welcome to my blog, Crabtree Heights.

My name is Laura Shield, and I am a born and raised resident of the Huon Valley in Tasmania’s south.

I am passionate about my home and wanted to share my love with those interested in country living.

Named after my home in the Huon Valley, “Crabtree Heights” has been a five year project that my Husband and I have undertaken. Now renovated, Crabtree Heights is the latest chapter of my life in the Huon Valley.

Please feel free to contact me anytime.

Your friend,
