Revolving Fund

Purchasing and selling unique conservation properties to protect biodiversity


Ever dream of escaping to your own gorgeous country property surrounded by nature?


You can purchase important conservation land in Victoria directly from Trust for Nature.


Through its Revolving Fund program, Trust for Nature purchases, protects and resells unique and important conservation properties in Victoria. 

The Revolving Fund specifically acquires land with natural values that best contribute to sustaining Victoria’s biodiversity. Once purchased, we then sell the property to an owner willing to protect these conservation values through a conservation covenant. Sale proceeds are returned to the Revolving Fund to purchase more property, creating a continuous conservation investment cycle.
