ENVIRONMENT

From the owners:

“We’re a couple devoted to the world of nature … our lives focus on managing a sustainable life style that we can share with like-minded guests. We value our wildlife highly, and protect the habitats that we have created within Wombat Bend; our bird register lists over 100 species, resident and visiting; we have numerous marsupials (wombats, possums, gliders), and nine species of microbats; our frog population is amongst the highest recorded for the Yarra Valley. Our passion extends to a deep understanding of Australia’s flora, and the many eco-zones across our continent. We try to live lightly and carefully in all we do, and in what we create. We see ourselves as custodians, with a responsibility to care for our planet …. and it is wonderful to know that our guests share the same values. It is a privilege to offer our sanctuary to others to enjoy.”

And from the moment you arrive, you won’t miss the rest of the world one little bit.
