All Is Not Lost

Down at the Heart Morass - the new section at the western end - it is inspiring to see the regenerative properties of Mother Nature at work.

This old Red Gum looks well and truly finished, yet in the foreground there is a mini forest of new life springing up.

This block had been overgrazed and neglected for a long time. Recent acquisition by a benevolent foundation, has enabled a new management committee to take control and hopefully restore this wetland area to something of its former glory. The removal of the cattle and some recent natural flooding has already seen a reversal in the decline of this ecosystem.

Perhaps all is not lost!


  1. Quite a contrast to when we first went there Gouldiae, Mother Nature is a tough old girl.
