David and Joyce Turner are the owners of 'Giba Khan', a property located approximately 28km from Kyogle and approximately 73km northwest of Lismore. The property is a dedicated wildlife-friendly sanctuary and it has been David and Joy's intent to assist in the rehabilitation of flora and fauna on the property while continuing to allow access for people to experience historical trails on the site. It has now come time for David and Joy to move on, and they are looking for a conservation-minded buyer who will continue their legacy of protecting wildlife and habitat at Giba Khan. The property features a low maintenance, two bedroom, steel and hardy plank home located on a large, Geotech approved house site with room for extension. There are also additional building sites available. The house runs on solar power with a backup generator, with hot water generated by both solar and gas, and has a land line phone, satellite internet and TV as well as a septic toilet. There is also a pumping licence for Warrazambil Creek.
The property covers 6.5 hectares of regenerating wet sclerophyll and rainforest vegetation as well as historical pasture, with a creek providing a valuable source of water for wildlife species. A range of eucalypt species including tallowwoods (Eucalyptus microcorys) and red box gums (Eucaylptus polyanthemos) exist on the property as well as many rainforest species. The property is fronted by Warrazambil Creek Mixed Cool Temperate and Rainforest slopes and forms part of the wildlife corridor connecting Border Ranges National Park. There are well drained easy walking paths across the block allowing access to recorded local and indigenous history. The property also features a large, established vegetable garden (pictured below) which includes assorted fruit trees. Exceptional rainfall in the area produces a seasonal waterfall gully.
Giba Khan is incredibly abundant in birds, wildlife and plant diversity. Wildlife species known to inhabit the sanctuary include dingoes (Canis lupus dingo), Victorian rifle birds (Ptiloris victoriae), azure kingfishers (Alcedo azurea), red-necked pademelons (Thylogale thetis), superb fairy-wrens (Malurus cyaneus), brush turkeys (Alectura lathami), and Australian logrunners (Orthonyx temminckii).
