Our farm is nestled in rugged country near an old dam. 

It is close to the west side edge of the Great Dividing Range in New South Wales Australia. 

Down our quiet dirt road that winds through the mountains is a Bird-hide Flora and Fauna Sanctuary attached to the dam. 

Behind the dam is a wildlife corridor, a place where birds, tortoises, goannas, wallabies, wallaroos and kangaroos can exist in wild and free.

The area supports 248 bird species around a shallow wetland.

There is a rough bird hide to lean over and watch the ducks and waders bobbing and diving for food.

A wonderful spot for peace and meditation as the sun sets over the lip of the dam and reflects the surrounding landscape in the water. 

Most iconic Australian birds are seen nearby.

It is a haven for migrating birds as well. 

As well as Spoonbills, Galahs, Waders, Black Swans, Egrets, Cockatoos, Rosellas and Pelicans. 


I have spotted at least a hundred different bird species on our farm and the surrounding valleys, hills and rugged ranges.

I am extraordinarily lucky to have such a place to call home; especially one many birds can call home as well.
