Restore and rewild - bringing back biodiversity and wildlife habitat to a historic property.

Hi, we're Michael and Dale and we've started a small property-based Landcare group located in the Jordan River Valley in Tasmania's Southern Midlands. We live on 10 acres of land on and escarpment overlooking the Jordan River. You might know us from an episode of Restoration Australia that filmed our restoration of two historic timber cottages and a convict-built brick chapel.

Our focus is on improving and restoring native grassland, which takes up much of our property. We really love native grasses and want to increase biodiversity at ground level. We're also interested in restoring a natural watercourse that once flowed through the property and creating a natural wetland to provide habitat for birds and wildlife. Hunting Ground is also home to a few giant eucalyptus viminalis (white gums), estimated at being hundreds of years old, that require a supportive understorey. Any knowledge, support and hands on deck would be much appreciated!
