Rest on the seating and dine at the picnic sites to imagine listening
to the sounds of nature,
the soft breeze through the Sheoak needles are
a wonderous sound. We have placed 70 tonnes
of crushed limestone along
the walktrails by wheelbarrow and shovel to stop any dieback being
through the property, this also makes it much easier to follow
the trails. A long and short trail
are on offer depending on your
energy levals. Don't forget to take your camera, the wildlife
is a little elusive.
reintroduced predated fauna back onto the property, now offering them a safe
free of ferals animals eg" foxes, cats and rabbits. This
has become a safe breeding place and
excess fauna will be release onto
other like minded properties and DEC managed lands. The
Brushtailed Bettong breeding has been successful with 20+ bred now and
been released into the 100ac Conservation Sanctuary.

the Snottlegobble trees, Emu Plums, Swamp Bottlebrush, Xmas Trees and
much more. All this predator fencing has been done by Simon &
Joy, learning from other
properties in Australia & New Zealand.
Replacement of this predator proof fence is estimated at $100,000-

All of the structual work for the electric front gate is
complete and the electric fence is now ticking.
We have learnt that extending the fence upwards to a final height of
2.1mts will help to keep
the cats out, currently at 1.6mts with
electric wires on top of the rabbit netting and rabbit
repair on the
ground both sides of the fence to stop ferals digging their way into
Colourbond panels have been added to the gates to stop cats getting in.
