Description

Louise Freckelton and David Bray are the owners of Highfield Farm and Woodland, a property situated in Adelong, approximately 70km east of Wagga Wagga, New South Wales. The property is a small-scale farm and dedicated conservation area, and it is Louise and David’s intent to establish eco-friendly accommodation on the property in the near future.  Two-thirds of Highfield Farm and Woodland are protected with a Conservation Agreement and the property is also registered with Land for Wildlife.

This area is comprised of Box Gum and Stringybark Grassy Woodland, Carex Sedgelands and riparian areas. The remainder of the property consists of grasslands and is dedicated to grazing and stock.

The property provides habitat for a wide range of wildlife including eastern grey kangaroos (Macropus giganteus), euros (Macropus robustus), swamp wallabies (Wallabia bicolor), bare-nosed wombats (Vombatus ursinus), squirrel (Petaurus norfolcensis) and feathertail (Acrobates pygmaeus) gliders and various antechinus species.
