Revolving Fund

Purchasing and selling unique conservation properties to protect biodiversity


“Belinda and I have always had a strong interest in promoting conservation and protecting the natural environment and purchasing a Trust for Nature property with a conservation covenant was a great of doing this. The intensification of the negative environmental effects of climate change motivated us to do something that in a very small way helped offset and repair these effects.” 

                                                                                              Buyers Gavin and Belinda Turrell.

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. We then sell the property to an owner willing to protect these conservation values with a Trust for Nature Conservation Covenant. Sale proceeds are returned to the Revolving Fund to acquire more properties, creating a continuous conservation investment cycle.

Our biggest Revolving Fund purchase was High Camp north of Melbourne, which has been on-sold to individuals and families who have bought blocks to build their homes on. Read more about this extraordinary project.
