It is the largest predator free ecosystem in Victoria. The property is exclusively managed for the conservation of some of Australia’s most threatened faunal species, including the Eastern Barred Bandicoot and Eastern Quoll.

Gates open from 6pm (to be confirmed) so bring a picnic basket and relax while waiting for the sun to set.

The creatures don’t come out till dusk, after 8.30 pm, when the Rangers will take us for a guided walk.
