Wildlife Land Trust / Sanctuaries / NSW / Elsewhere

Peter Chadney is the owner of Elsewhere, a property located approximately 25km south of Grafton. The property is a dedicated wildlife sanctuary used by Peter and his family to enjoy the bush while providing a safe haven for native flora and fauna. It is Peter’s intent to continue to utilise the property for conservation purposes

Elsewhere covers approximately 8.09 hectares of pristine, virtually untouched bushland and fronts on to the Orara River which provides a good water source for local fauna. A slight incline from the riverfront leads up to the family residence, with rock caves and bush rock providing shelter for wildlife along the way. The predominant vegetation type is eucalypt woodland and includes a variety of eucalypts, acacias, ferns and native grasses.

Wildlife abounds at Elsewhere and includes eastern grey kangaroos (Macropus giganteus), brushtail (Trichosurus vulpecula) and ringtail (Pseudocheirus peregrinus) possums, king parrots (Alisterus scapularis), laughing kookaburras (Dacelo novaeguineae), carpet pythons (Morelia spilota), swamp wallabies (Wallabia bicolor), and an abundance of other birdlife. Peter also suspects koalas (Phascolarctos cinereus) are present on the property.
