Conservationists for Bruny Island acreage of 20 ha; an eco property full of Tasmanian Natural and Environmental Values
This quiet and secluded block of 20ha has more than 15 acres of sunny, cleared land with the balance comprising heaths and mature native forest. Access is by a good all-weather 2WD track from Cloudy Bay Road. The entire property is a fine example of an eco property as it is under a Conservation Covenant with a Nature Conservation Plan in place, so 589 Cloudy Bay Road will appeal to someone who understands and appreciates the natural and environmental values of the land and is prepared to maintain and enhance them into the future.
The current owner bought the land in 1998 and grew organic vegetable seed on the fertile soil until 2008. Up to that date, the property was fully certified organic. No chemicals or sprays have been used and only organic fertilisers, composts and rock dust have been applied. The only stock that has been on the land in the past 21 years have been a couple of alpacas and some draught horses.
The cleared land has a long east-west axis, so it attracts all-day sun. There are three dams, including a large dam that is full year-round, plus another on a winter-flowing creek. Water is piped underground to the existing home site. An underground Telstra phone line runs from the road and there’s an underground power cable to the home site which has never been connected. Eucalypts in the forested areas provide habitat for rare and endangered species such as forty-spotted pardalotes and swift parrots. Wedge-tailed eagles and other raptors are often sighted.
There are three rustic bush structures that have been built within the conservation zone and these have to be removed under a Kingborough Council order. The conservation area must be cleared and rehabilitated under the terms of the Nature Conservation Plan.
