My name is Victoria. My husband, Joel and I live on his family’s 22,000 acre sheep, cattle, goat & cropping property in Walgett– 8 hours from Sydney in far Western NSW.
I am a city girl originally from Perth. At the start of my nursing career I moved to the Kimberley Region of Western Australia living initially in Derby and Broome before settling in Kununurra where I remained for 5 years. During this time I met Joel, who was working as a helicopter mustering pilot on a remote cattle station in Northern Territory.
In 2016 we moved to Walgett where I am employed as a nurse at the local hospital. Joel works on his family’s property he is now the 4thgeneration to do so. But in recent years he has had to work predominantly off-farm due to the ongoing drought. So he has been back up in the air helicopter mustering through out Northern Australia.
Banjo & Co Home evolved from my love of home linen – tablecloths, napkins, sheets, pillowcases… just ask my husband! Visitors to our home always comment how they love the cloth napkins and tablecloths that I always use on our table – a business was born!
The catalyst to launch my small business came after Joel spent close to 6 months working away in the Northern Territory after our wedding in March 2019.
2021 is looking like a great year for us - the paddocks are looking green and we have had some more rain. The creative sparks are flowing and I am so excited to share some exciting new collections with you very soon!
I love the products that I am designing, creating and hope you do as well!
