Help secure the future of the Red-tailed Black-Cockatoo
This large, diverse and peaceful 209.2 ha bush block is surrounded by Kalingur State Forest on three sides and provides habitat for the nationally threatened Red-tailed Black-Cockatoo. Access by 4WD will take you away from the rush and bustle, to a special place where you can dedicate your time to exploring the wonderful native plants and wildlife on the property. It has a wide variety of vegetation types ranging from high sandy rises with old Stringybark trees; woodlands of Yellow Gum, Buloke and statuesque native pines; to freshwater meadows, spectacular when covered with breathtaking displays of wildflowers. There are small relatively open areas which lend themselves to a possible future dwelling or weekender. Take on the adventure of conserving important biodiversity while enjoying the peace and serenity.
