THE ENVIRONMENT

From OTWAY ESCAPES:

This unique property is located on an 8 ha south facing slope. The construction of the pole style house is entirely from timber, using a selection (mainly Western Australian Jarrah) that has been recycled and refinished to an exceptional standard.

The land was purchased as part of a degraded non viable farming site, the property was inundated with Blackberry, Gorse and Ragwort. After a concerted effort over many years we have been able to rid the property of these “weeds”. The property was also suffering from significant “tunnel erosion” that entailed the significant planting of trees and undergrowth to support the sub-soils and save the precious top soils.These measures have been implemented over the past 20 years without any financial assistance.

The property now looks fantastic, 50% if full wooded and the balance is a combination of trees and pastures. Needless to say that the property is a haven for wildlife, with echidnas, wallabies and kangaroos visiting regularly. The birdlife is amazing, from soaring Wedgtail Eagles to the smallest fairy wren, or Pardalote. Parrots of all types visit the bird feeders provided.We are proud members of Landcare, Land for Wildlife, Otway Agroforestry, RSPCA Choose Wisely (Gold Medal Level)
