Reimagining Landscapes

Naturally reconnecting land, biodiversity and people

Pioneers in Landscape Restoration

Cassinia has been a leader in landscape restoration and biodiversity protection since 2004. We deliver projects which restore, reconnect and protect Australia’s natural systems. We seek to see all of Australia’s national parks reconnected through biodiversity-based revegetation projects, and seek to incorporate conservation management into agricultural systems that make landscapes both productive and ecologically resilient.

In the past 15 years we have delivered over 75 landscape-scale projects across four states, and in the process become Trust for Nature’s largest covenantor - that means we have permanently protected for nature almost 20,000 acres (8000 hectares) of Victoria - more than any other organisation.

We exist to help other businesses develop projects which can heal the planet, and we work to develop solutions in Carbon, Biodiversity Protection and Sustainable Agriculture.

Forging meaningful partnerships is a core element of our collaborative business approach.
