Covenant and conservation features
Deed of Covenant for the Conservation of Land was approved on 22/11/2004 and covers the rear 12.33ha of property. Lighthill Ridge is also declared a Land for Wildlife property.
The land has woodland vegetation of heathy dry forest, grassy dry forest and valley grassy forest with a wide variety of native flora species of note.
Being a ridge line it is a beautiful walk to the top if the hill which has a 360 degree view across Riddells Creek, Sunbury, Gisborne and Mount Macedon.
There are many native animals, a wide variety of birds, lizards and frogs, eastern grey kangaroos, swamp wallabies, sugar gliders, ringtail and brushtail possums (1 albino brushie), echidnas and micro bats. Interestingly I have never seen a snake on the property over the last 14 years.
Weed eradication program has been consistent and progressive with blackberries, sweet pittosporum, gorse and agapanthus eradicated from the property, sweet vernal eradication is ongoing as is fox, rabbit and deer eradication.
