Benloch

Embedded in a large area of native vegetation within the Cobaw Ranges, the Benloch property is a mixture of Herb-rich Foothills Forest and Grassy Dry Forest which provides habitat for a suite of vulnerable and endangered flora and fauna. The site is home to thousands of centuries-old trees, providing the hollows for many Australian species of birds and mammals, including the Square Tailed Kite, Brush Tailed Phascogale and Powerful Owl. In 2015, the site experienced a significant bushfire event, and exemplifies the extraordinary regenerative capacity of Australian landscapes in response to fire – now covered by shrub and tree recruitment. The site's journey through fire is documented in the video below.
