Wildlife Land Trust / Sanctuaries / NSW / Katmandu

Ursula and Terry Prince are the owners of Katmandu, a property located approximately 65km north west of Gosford. The property is a dedicated wildlife sanctuary and a residence used mainly for wildlife rehabilitation. It is Ursula and Terry’s intent to continue to utilise the property for the benefit of the local environment.

Wildlife known to inhabit the property includes koalas (Phascolarctos cinereus), gliders (Petaurus spp.), brushtail (Trichosurus vulpecula) and ringtail (Pseudocheirus peregrinus) possums, brust-tailed rock-wallabies (Petrogale penicillata), superb lyrebirds (Menura novaehollandiae), bare-nosed wombats (Vombatus ursinus), feathertail gliders (Acrobates pygmaeus) and 65 types of bird including eight different species of honeyeaters.
