About Conmurra Wildlife Sanctuary
Since we purchased Conmurra from its original owners, who are also family friends, we always considered it to be a 'Wildlife Sanctuary'. We started by removing old farm fencing, controlling weeds as well as introduced foxes and cats which prey upon native wildlife. We planted native seedlings to improve the habitat and installed nest boxes in the garden to provide homes for possums and gliders. Volunteers from the local area and across Australia have helped us to manage the landscapes and care for the wildlife.
We have created space for animals - thus a sanctuary for wildlife
Native animals are accustomed to our presence and wallabies and possums are often seen around the homestead gardens. Colourful rosellas, tiny treecreepers and laughing kookaburras also sing from the trees as lizards scamper through the logs and leaf litter. With over 4km of tracks and trails to explore, there is always somewhere to go to watch birds, gaze at the views and the sunsets or just enjoy the surroundings.
Unlike traditional wildlife parks and zoos, we are not open to the general public, rather we offer self-contained accommodation for guests via Airbnb. Guests can explore the trails by day or take a guided walk by night. This way we we can ensure that people can reconnect with nature and we minimise the impact to the wildlife and the landscape they call home.
