Wildlife Land Trust / Sanctuaries / NSW / McLeod Hill Farm

Shane and Shannon Thompson are the owners of Mcleod Hill Farm, a property located in Brogo, approximately 20km north of Bega, NSW. The property is a residence, dedicated wildlife sanctuary and wildlife rehabilitation site. Shannon is a licensed wildlife carer and releases rescued possums on the property. Shane and Shannon intend to maintain the property as a residence and wildlife-friendly sanctuary, with no current plans for further development of the land.

The property covers approximately 7 hectares of rolling hills, grasslands and native bush. A creek running through the property feeds into a large dam which provides water and habitat for wildlife. Vegetation is dense and dominated by eucalypts and other native trees.

A wide range of wildlife is found on the property and includes eastern grey kangaroos (Macropus giganteus), swamp wallabies (Wallabia bicolor), bare-nosed wombats (Vombatus ursinus), brushtail (Trichosurus vulpecula) and ringtail (Pseudocheirus peregrinus) possums and short-beaked echidnas (Tachyglossus aculeatus). Fallow deer (Dama dama) also roam the property.

Birdife on the property includes wedge-tailed eagles (Aquila audax) and yellow-tailed black cockatoos (Calyptorhynchus funereus).
