Rob and Ruth met up again 14 years ago in Sydney at the funeral of a mutual friend, having not seen each other for 30 years, back when Ruth was Rob’s P A at EMI Records, Wellington NZ where they also had a brief romance!
During the ensuing years Rob had enjoyed a stellar career in the Music Industry in both Australia, the USA and internationally, holding various positions as head of A & R/Promotions for EMI Australia, and Director of International Operations at Capital Records Los Angeles. He also spent a considerable period travelling the world as Tina Turner’s Tour Manager. Some of Rob’s notable Artist signings include Savage Garden, Tina Arena, Keith Urban and James Blundell.
Not long before Ruth and Rob meet again, Rob had discovered a 30 acre treasure of unspoiled, bush-land in Bucketty NSW, offering spectacular uninterrupted views, and total tranquillity.
Over the last 15 years, Rob and Ruth have celebrated many family events, birthdays, Christmas’s, many parties, a huge amazing wedding, a constant stream of family and friends to stay, and now, thoroughly enjoying entertaining Airbnb guests from Australia and all over the world.
Together with Ruth’s flair gained in her career in marketing and sales in the Textile and furniture Industry, Robs creativity, and ability to build “just about anything”, combined with their shared passion, the property has developed into what it is today, the quirky and unforgettable Walkers Run, Funky Wild West In The Aussie Bush!
