Located 30km north-east of Seymour in Victoria's Goulburn Valley, Locksley is focused on protecting and enhancing the region's depleted biodiversity. Half of the site comprises one of the region's last remaining patches of remnant vegetation, which now acts as a haven for native plants and wildlife in an otherwise agricultural landscape.
Now protected in perpetuity, the old trees and impressive array of native grasses will remain a source for seed and habitat for species endemic to the locals. The remainder of the property has been set aside for revegetation, incorporating native species to bolster the patch's size, biodiversity and resilience.
