A 400 ha conservation site enclosed by an 11 kilometre electrified predator proof fence, making it the largest predator free ecosystem in Victoria. The site contains native plains grassland, herb rich grassy woodland, granitic hills habitat and old growth woodland. The remnant grasslands contain many critically endangered flora species.

The property is managed to conserve and breed some of Australia’s most threatened fauna, including native grassland species such as the Eastern Barred Bandicoot.

Management and research is carried out in consultation with the Department of Sustainability and Environment (DSE), Zoos Victoria and various universities.
