YULISA Reyes, originally from El Salvador and Sydney, now Goonellabah:

"I love this area and the lifestyle, and the kids love it too. My partners' family are from here. 

"We were only meant to stay one year, and have been here now for two.

"Work is the only downside of this area. Finding permanent work here is really hard, you have to have connections.

"We would really love to stay here, we love it."
