Generally:
Peter Muller preferred to live in rural rather than city locations and spent 40 years of his 55 years in private practice living and working in a country environment. (N.S.W., France and South Australia).  From 1964-85 he ran his practice from "Glenrock", Marulan, N.S.W. together with a successful grazing enterprise on 800 hectares.

The first overseas commissions came from Tahiti (1969-70) and Bali with the completion of Kayu Aya hotel (known as The Bali Oberoi since 1977).
In 1977 there was a sudden influx of new overseas commissions from the Philippines, Saudi Arabia, Tahiti, Bali, Fiji, Malaysia, India, Egypt and the Maldives, due mostly to the influence of the Kayu Aya hotel.
The
Amandari (1989), the Oberoi Bali (1974) and the Oberoi Lombok (1998) hotels in Indonesia, have received world-wide acclaim.  For detailed listing of awards for each of these hotels click on the above links.
