We have enjoyed a few odd bird sightings on the island of late. Strong-billed Honeyeaters, one of our favourite endemics, as well as several other species, have been exhibiting winter nesting behaviour. This is rather unusual to say the least; Strong-billed Honeyeaters typically breed from early spring through summer! A regular species...Read more

Wildlife care (the 'babies report')

More goings-on at Inala

Property works Our Property Manager Bori has been busy fencing and planting an area in front of the Inala office with native species to screen the raptor hide from the driveway (access to the cottages).
