Wildlife Land Trust / Sanctuaries / NSW / Corang River B&B

Tracey Davis and Todd Farrawell are the owners of Corang River B&B, a property located in Corang, approximately 35km northeast of Braidwood, NSW. The property is a residence as well as a dedicated wildlife sanctuary and bush retreat for tourists. Tracey and Todd intend to continue utilising the property for these purposes, whilst controlling feral species such as foxes, preserving natural vegetation and developing attractions such as birdwatching, photography and education for guests to experience.

Corang River B&B covers approximately 119.3 hectares and is bordered on one side by the Corang River. The property consists of undulating hills and features several dams and some large open areas of grassland; however most of the property is vegetated with largely untouched areas of native bushland.

Vegetation on the property varies between dry sclerophyll shrub forest, grass forest, heathland, riparian vegetation and pine forest. Vegetative species present include various eucalypts, she-oaks (Casuarina spp.), pines and native grasses.
