Wildlife Land Trust / Sanctuaries / NSW / Kinabo

Kinabo is a 77 hectare property located in Gundaroo and owned by Narelle Jensz and Luke Tyrrell. The sanctuary shares a boundary with fellow WLT sanctuary Sleepy Burrows and is intersected by a permanent river. The property was purchased with the intent of being a dedicated wildlife sanctuary used for wildlife rehabilitation and minor agriculture (llamas). Narelle and Luke intend to rehabilitate the sanctuary (which was left in poor condition by the previous owners), maintain it as a wildlife refuge for the release of native species, and revegetate to create and maintain ongoing native vegetation corridors.

The vegetation on the property is domianted by yellow box (Eucalyptus melliodora), red box (Eucalyptus polyanthemos), wattles (Acacia spp.), lomandras and various native shrubs.

Wildlife present includes bare-nosed wombats (Vombatus ursinus), eastern grey kangaroos (Macropus giganteus), swamp wallabies (Wallabia bicolor), brushtail possums (Trichosurus vulpecula), wedge-tailed eagles (Aquila audax), crimson (Platycercus elegans) and eastern (Platycercus eximus) rosellas, magpies (Cracticus tibicen), galahs (Eolophus roseicapilla) and many other bird species.
