Our Before and After Photos

It is nice to be able to see our progress with re-vegetating our Sanctuary by comparing some historical images with the current day.

Shortly after we arrived (1999) a landslip threatened to take out our driveway so we had to have it excavated. This area was harsh with much soil removed, however we established a flourishing area of eucalypts, now a favorite resting place for wallabies. 

1999 - Landslide

Now with established trees...

... providing homes for wildlife.

Hard to believe this is the same area! The section of riparian zone below the Primary Release Yard was completely bare, eroded from cattle trampling it and had very little soil. Julius and Don took the lead role in planting it out in 2006... Now, in 2020 it has full canopy. 

2000 - Tree planting with Julius...

... and a shiny new tractor

... and a very bare creek bank

2020 - 

This area of creek now well vegetated

... and providing homes and shelter

The large North-east facing woodlot on the Western side of the property - once a large open Kikuyu paddock, now established canopy with native grasses and trees regenerating in the understory.
