Main Ridge, Victoria
Started 1989
70 acres
Project value: $180,000
This property was one of the original inspirations for the creation of HRF. Beginning in 1989, the project saw the transformation from degraded grazing paddocks, to full wetland and bushland habitat; some 50 acres. Having won an award, and later becoming surrounded by Greens Bush National Park, it is an amazing example of what can be achieved. HRF has helped with habitat restoration, wetland habitat creation, and revegetation on this property.
