Wildlife Land Trust / Sanctuaries / QLD / Kabul

Sally Jenyns is the owner of Kabul, a 25 hectare property located in Burbank, approximately 20km southeast of Brisbane, Queensland. Sally intends to continue to protect and enhance Kabul’s biodiversity to create a refuge for the local wildlife through the conservation of native bushland found on the property.

The properties conservation values are protected by a Conservation Covenant with the Brisbane City Council, and it is predominantly composed of two basic vegetation types: open eucalypt woodland with a grassy understory on the more exposed slopes and ridges; and eucalypt woodland with a rainforest species-dominated midstorey on the lower slopes and along gullies and watercourses.

Wildlife known to be present on Kabul includes red-necked (Macropus rufogriseus) and swamp (Wallabia bicolor) wallabies, sugar gliders (Petaurus breviceps), koalas (Phascolarctos cinereus), short-beaked echidnas (Tachyglossus aculeatus), powerful owls (Ninox strenua), white-throated nightjars (Eurostopodus mystacalis) and rufous fantails (Rhipidura rufifrons), and wedge-tailed eagles (Aquila audax) nest on the property.  The site has a range of habitat features including exposed rocks on the hillcrests and ridges, grass tussocks, fallen timber and watercourses.  Many advanced age trees and habitat hollows are common.
