This is just a spot to note as you drive past the gate to this property. The former farm, was purchased and replanted for ‘Carbon sequestration, biodiversity and habitat restoration’ before being resold on to a private owner, who continues to manage the property for conservation.

Story of the place


Justin Jonson is a Restoration Ecologist who has worked extensively on revegetation projects in the Fitz-Stirling area. 

Ecological restoration

The property is in a very strategic position for the broader restoration efforts in the Fitz-Stirling as it adjoins Nowanup and strengthens the link between Corackerup Nature Reserve and the Corackerup Creek Reserve.

Threshold Environmental

“Proof of concept has definitely been achieved. Anybody who comes to this landscape who visits any of the ecological restoration projects that we’ve been involved in – they’re always impressed.

And we have made a step in scale. So, you know, 250 hectare projects, that’s no longer considered large scale. That’s an achievable scale where we can do pretty much pretty high detailed restoration at that scale. The next step now is to roll this out to step up another scale, and that is actually the critical scale that’s needed globally in fact.

Because in order to really make an impact at a global level, different projects around the world are going to need to start stepping up to the 1000 ha scales. And that might be sort of a blended style of restoration that doesn’t only focus on for ecological restoration, it might have some modified farming systems with woody vegetation that can be used for grazing.”


See & Do

Scenic drive north

The road through this section travels through a significant section of unbroken bush, and it is these large remnants that the Gondwana Link program is connecting back together again so that the wildlife and plants can flourish.

As you drive along this section of road, it will become clear just how much habitat is left in this landscape, and how much restoration and revegetation is being undertaken by a range of organisations and landholders, as part of the Gondwana Link program.

Giving back and getting involved

Gondwana Link plays a key coordination role in the ecological restoration work in the Fitz-Stirling area.
