Michele Bain and Nick Cureton are the owners of Yondah Beach House, a property situated on the Yorke Peninsula, South Australia.  The property is an eco-friendly tourist accommodation and dedicated wildlife sanctuary. Michele and Nick aim to maintain the property for these uses, with future plans for revegetation and establishing a wildlife release program as part of the Great Southern Ark project.

The property covers approximately 121 hectares on the coastline and comprises cliffs, dunes and heathland backed by mallee on limestone. Vegetation consists of coastal tussock grasses and heathland vegetation backed by South Australian coastal mallee (Eucalyptus diversifolia) woodland. The understorey consists mainly of cockies tongues (Templetonia retusa), coastal daisybush (Olearia axillaris) and 30 species of orchid.

The property provides habitat for a range of wildlife including western grey kangaroos (Macropus fuliginosus), western pygmy possums (Cercartetus concinnus), long-nosed fur seals (Arctocephalus forsteri) and Rosenberg’s goannas (Varanus rosenbergi). A variety of birdlife is also present including malleefowl (Leipoa ocellata), hooded plovers (Thinornis rubricollis), ospreys (Pandion spp.) and white-bellied sea eagles (Haliaeetus leucogaster).
