2012 update: Since the new owners Linda Spinaze and Roger Clarke have taken over Bunhybee Grasslands in November 2008 more than 220 native plant species were identified. You can read more on their website. The new owners welcome you to see land protection in action. To visit the Bunhybee Grasslands property, please contact Linda Spinaze or Roger Clarke directly to arrange a visit.
Bunhybee Grasslands is a living treasure chest.
This high conservation 48.5ha property is 35kms from Braidwood and 100kms southeast of Canberra. Located in the Upper Shoalhaven River catchment, it has superb views over the picturesque Jerrabatgulla Creek valley.
Bunhybee Grasslands supports a mosaic of Natural Temperate Grassland and Snow Gum Woodland. In spring, wildflowers turn on an amazing display.
The Friends of Grasslands group have found more than an incredible 161 native plant species on these grasslands, including orchids and the threatened Mauve Burr Daisy.
A walk through the property will help you to imagine what the valleys in the surrounding landscape may have once looked like. They have mostly been cleared and modified for intensive agriculture. Now, you can only find such a diversity of ground cover plants at refuges like Bunhybee Grasslands.
Bunhybee Grasslands lies halfway between Canberra and the beaches of Batemans Bay – both approximately one hour away. Cooma, the gateway town to the snowfields, is just over one hours drive to the south. This property is very close to the forests of Deua National Park.
Other general features on Bunhybee Grasslands are:
- One dam
- Intermittent creek
- Sunny aspects
Periodic grazing will be an integral part of the management of this land.
As the new owner, you will protect this property’s conservation values in perpetuity by signing a conservation agreement and managing the land in accordance with a detailed plan of management specific to this property.
As part of its ongoing stewardship program, the Nature Conservation Trust will support and empower you into the future by offering free advice and guidance, backed up by on-site visits.
