The farm is nestled in rugged, hilly country on the western side of the Great Dividing Range in New South Wales Australia. Three km down our quiet dirt road is a Bird-hide Flora and Fauna Sanctuary. The area supports 248 bird species around a shallow wetland dam.

It is a haven for migrating birds. Unfortunately, after 28 months of drought there’s no water left for the Spoonbills, Galahs, Waders, Black Swans, Egrets and Pelicans.

I have spotted at least a hundred different bird species on our farm. I am extraordinarily lucky to have such a place to call home; especially one so many birds can call home as well.
