We are on 1 square kilometre of various habitats here including forest, sub-alpine heathland and of course the accommodation village.
Being a private nature reserve we've got all sorts of critters that live here in the wide range of habitats that we have.
This little fella here - his name's Rory and he's a rufous wallaby. We've raised him from a little joey.
Someone brought him up when his mum got killed on the road and we've had him for about 6 or 8 months now.
We actually bought this property from a logging company with the idea of saving it and then the Huon Bush Retreats business came along as a way that we could actually afford to do that.
We have 4 kilometres of bushwalking tracks We've got an easy half to three quarter hour loop. Most people can do that with ordinary fitness, ordinary street shoes. People can have a really nice 5 or 6 hours just enjoying our whole bushwalking track network.
We want our guests to understand where we're coming from with the conservation thing. It's a great place where people can actually come and experience alternative energy and alternative ways of looking after the environment. Try it out for themselves and go away with some ideas of maybe how they can look after the environment in their own homes in the future.
