LAND FOR WILDLIFE
Please note we are designated Land for Wildlife.
This means native wildlife frequent our property when THEY choose for grazing and to laze
They are NOT pets and they do NOT interact with humans and dogs
They only feed naturally from the land and drink from our dams
PLEASE DO NOT get too close to them and avoid noise which will also frighten them away
You are free to walk through the olive grove and over to the dams
however the kangaroos will hop away and ducks will fly away when you are too close
We live in harmony giving them their own space as you also enjoy your own space
with the added enjoyment of sitting and watching them
They may come up close in the garden outside your Studio lounge when you are inside
This is a true joy to watch.
We ask you kindly respect their space and also the privacy of the guest who may be staying at the other end of the Studio
We wish you an enjoyable relaxing stay with all we have to offer
living in natural harmony in nature
