Some of Jason’s biggest achievements are on display in his Townsville home. Picture: Josephine Carter Photography Liana: I love being in the sun and in water, so getting outdoors on my days off is a favourite. A good afternoon watching movies, or a good TV series is also a go to after a busy week. Jason: Play PlayStation for sure. Q: Do you have any holidays/trips planned this year that you are looking forward to? When not training, playing or sleeping — there’s nothing like a game on the PlayStation to relax. Liana: Just over a year and a bit now. We built a duplex with Martin Locke Homes. We both had never built a home before however Martin and his team took us under their wings and made the process a very smooth one. Jason: It was the first time we had both built a home and were initially quite nervous. Martin Locke Homes made it so simple, we didn’t know it could be such an easy process. Q: How would you describe you style? A family photograph of Jason and his brother. Picture: Josephine Carter Photography Liana: Photos of family, friends and the best of memories make anywhere feel like home. Hand me down recipes and home cooked dinners. Oh, and our dog Theo! Jason: My PlayStation and a roast on Sunday Q: Who does the cooking and household chores?

Picture: Josephine Carter Photography Liana: I wouldn’t say we are very “stylish” people but I guess you could say modern would describe our style best. Jason: What she said (laughs) Q: Do you have a favourite space around you home? The couple love nothing more than quality time spend with each other, as well as family and friends. Picture: Josephine Carter Photography Liana: We are both quite busy with Jason always playing here or away and I work shift work, so our schedules can make it difficult to always entertain. Normally when Jason is away, I always have my friends visit or stay for the weekend which I always look forward too. Jason: Normally close friends and mum and dad At Home With Jason Taumalolo and partner Liana. Picture: Josephine Carter Photography Liana: Super friendly and always keeping an eye out for each other. We have been lucky enough to meet and make good friends with a lot of our neighbours at our local dog park. Jason: Everyone has been super welcoming of us into their community and everyone is willing to lend a hand. Q: How long have you lived there and who build your dream home? Bedroom bliss.

Q: Name five items that makes your home, feel like home. At Home With Jason Taumalolo and partner Liana. Picture: Josephine Carter Photography Liana: Convenience definitely was a stand out for myself. It takes just over five minutes to get to work. Willows and Canon Park is minutes away, and all our friends and family livewithin 5 minute drives. Jason: Location was also a big one for myself. It only takes me five minutes to get to training in the morning; so I am able to always have a sneaky sleep in. Q: What do you love about your local community? There’s no place like home for Jason Taumalolo and partner Liana. Picture: Josephine Carter Photography Q: Why did you choose Brookstone on the Park to build your fist home? Modern and functional. Picture: Josephine Carter Photography Liana: I do all the cooking, however Jason does help prepare. I am a neat freak, so I naturally do a lot of household chores whenever I have a spare minute. Jason is always ready to help(sometimes with lots of prompting). Jason: Me! (laughs) Q: What do you both like to do to relax? At Home With Jason Taumalolo and partner Liana. PICTURE CREDIT: Josephine Carter PhotographyJASON Taumalolo is living life in the fast lane following his $10 million signing with the North Queensland Cowboys, making time to spend at home with partner Liana and fur-child Theo even more precious. The couple recently celebrated their one-year anniversary at Brookstone on the Park in Condon, where they built their first dream home together. Their three-bedroom, two bathroom home, is one of two duplexes on the 718sq m block. The Townsville Bulletin caught up with Jason and Liana this week for a quick Q & A and an exclusive look at their modern, yet modest home. Here is what they had to say. A home is not a home without a dog. Picture: Josephine Carter Photography Liana: Potentially heading to Tonga with Jason and his family and possibly a stop in Fiji at the end of the year. Jason: Going back to the Kingdom of Tonga for a family reunion. Q: Do you like to entertain at home and who would you normally spend time with?
