Over 1000 native species planted. Over 10 acres of regeneration. And we are just getting started! Our approach to restoring the land and its fauna.
Altitude 261 is uniquely placed at the crossroads of high conservation values (HCV) forest and wildlife corridors. Not only is it a beautiful property with a stunning outlook but it has a very diverse fauna profile. We are lucky that much of the landscape reveals at close hand the incredible diversity of the Byron region.
Pass our rainforest creek on arrival, wind up the 1km sealed driveway and you will see rainforest in one direction and koala forest in the other. Looking towards the ocean from the house we have beautiful regrowth forest that continues its march back to rainforest roots. This is our major project over the next decade.
Guests are invited to walk the property and explore. While the property is steep in parts we have created a number of easy walking tracks which run along the mountain contours.
For the more adventurous behind the house is very wild wet schlerophyll forest that rises up to Mt Boogarem, part of Mt Jerusalem National Park.
