We are a private wildlife sanctuary (not open to the general public) which is part of a wider network of wildlife sanctuaries that form the Wildlife Land Trust. Like the other sanctuaries in this network, the wildlife who live here are protected from harmful practices such as hunting and clearfelling of vegetation. We are also working towards regenerating this land to improve ecosystem function and biodiversity.
Our location is in Northern NSW, very close to both the Mebbin and Border Ranges National Parks, which is one of Australia's biodiversity hotspots. The climate is here is subtropical.
Why Heron Hill?
We have the privilege to have White Necked and White Faced Herons visiting our dams most days, while the Nankeen Night Heron lives in the creek at the base of our property. They are beautiful birds and very shy by nature. While they see us regularly, they prefer to keep their distance from humans, which is probably a smart move on their part.
