Macedon

If you share a love for all things earthy, revel in the wonder of creation and are passionate about enjoying and protecting our natural environment, this may be just the property for you.

Close to Macedon township on the outer edge of the Wombat State Forest, this almost untouched parcel of land is protected by a Trust for Nature Covenant. Coupled with State and local council planning regulations, please note this means that building a home is not on the cards.

The successful purchaser may be eligible to apply for a further two stewardship payments equaling up to $68,000 - STRICT CONDITIONS APPLY.

Adjacent to the Slaty Creek Calder Freeway underpass, the site provides a small but important corridor for species between the Macedon Regional Park to the east, and the Lerderderg State Park to the west.

Acquired by Cassinia in 2012, the site is now protected in perpetuity by a conservation covenant. Being located close to the Macedon Plantation, this is significant for the preservation of local biodiversity in what may have become a contested space.

The site is located in Black Forest and is mostly covered by dense Lowland forest and Riparian Woodland. Native grasses, ferns, and orchids populate the forest floor beneath a dense canopy of tall Eucalypts. The trickling Slaty Creek runs through the heart of the property, offering a water source for many species, and a home for Platypuses - which have been sighted there on multiple occasions.

The property is accessible by four-wheel-drive only.
