Midnight Oil front-man and former politician Peter Garrett has acquired a property in Kangaroo Valley, in the Shoalhaven region of New South Wales, after a two year absence.
The entertainer is paying $1.2 million for a 4000 square metre holding called Hartland, which contains a three bedrooms and a studio/garage.
It marks a return to the precinct for Garrett and his wife, Doris, who sold a property in Mittagong for $2.8 million in 2016 (this holding cost them $531,000 in 1995, according to this item in propertyobserver).
Mittagong is about 43 kilometre drive south of Kangaroo Valley.
Last week, the pair sold their terrace in Sydney’s Paddington for $5.25 million. The couple paid $2.7 million for this inner-city home in Gordon Street in 2015 before undertaking a renovation and extension.
Garrett fronted the band which became known as Midnight Oil in 1972 until resigning in 2002 to focus on a political career. According to this Wikipedia post, it sold 12 million albums until that time.
The band reformed in 2009 – the 65 year old singer recently touring with the group.
