Big Brother star Krystal Hipwell reveals how she avoided Sydney’s strict lockdown – as she ‘bounces back and forth’ between two luxury homes

Ex-Big Brother star Krystal Hipwell has revealed how she managed to avoid Sydney’s strict lockdown after receiving a number of messages from followers on Instagram.

The 35-year-old explained on Sunday how she had left Sydney with her family before the lockdown and had been ‘blessed’ to have a farm in Crackenback in rural New South Wales, as well as a home in Gerringong in the South Coast.

For the past few weeks, Krystal has shared idyllic photos of herself with her husband, Neil Hipwell, and their three young children in the two properties.

“I’ve received quite a few messages from people asking how and why we should be exempted from the Sydney lockdown,” Krystal began her Instagram Story post.

“The reason for this is that we left Sydney well before the lockdown went into effect and haven’t returned since.”

Krystal said they had been lucky enough to “bounce back and forth” between their two homes and had no immediate plans to return to their Sydney apartment.

“We are very blessed to have two houses in unobstructed areas and we are rocking back and forth between these houses,” she explained.

‘We don’t feel the need to return to Sydney now, now that my Neil can work remotely, and Sunny [their school-aged son] learn to do remotely.

“It just seems crazy to be locked in a tiny apartment with no backyard and three kids in a stressful environment, above our current arrangement, especially when there’s no end in sight,” she concluded.

Krystal and Neil share three children, son Sunny, six, daughter Nakoda, two, and 10-month-old son Huska.

Sydney has made it through the fourth week of a strict lockdown, with NSW registering 141 new cases on Sunday.

Sydneysiders can only leave their home to exercise, run errands, provide medical care or go to work if they are unable to work from home.

Krystal rose to fame in the 2006 season of Big Brother Australia. Since then, she has become a beauty and lifestyle influencer, as well as a blogger and fitness trainer.
