Wildlife Land Trust / Sanctuaries / TAS / Erica Beach House

Jessica Adams is the owner of Erica Beach House, a property situated in Tasmania. The property features a beach house which is used as a holiday home and cabins which provide tourist accommodation, and it is Jessica’s intention to continue utilising them for these purposes whilst preserving the natural values of the surrounding bushland on the property.

The property covers approximately 0.4 hectares of grasses interspersed with native trees and scrub. The main vegetative species present are eucalypts and native grasses which provide habitat for wildlife.

Wildlife present on the property includes Bennett’s wallabies (Macropus rufogriseus), short-beaked echidnas (Tachyglossus aculeatus) and brushtail (Trichosurus vulpecula) and ringtail (Pseudocheirus peregrinus) possums. A variety of birdlife is also present including tawny frogmouths (Podargus strigoides), magpies (Cracticus tibicen) and galahs (Eolophus roseicapilla).
