Wildlife Land Trust / Sanctuaries / NSW / Misty Hills Sanctuary

Liesl Perryman and Michael Pottinger are the owners of Misty Hills Sanctuary, a property situated in Carwoola, approximately 85km south of Goulburn, NSW. The property is a residence used for recreation and as a wildlife refuge. In addition, Liesl and Michael own and manage a wombat rescue and rehabilitation program on the property.  They intend to continue allowing the native flora to regenerate on the property whilst providing a safe area for wildlife. The property is also registered with Land for Wildlife.

The property covers approximately 16 hectares of undulating native grassland and mixed native woodlands, intersected by a non-permanent creek. Two dams also provide water and habitat for wildlife.

A range of wildlife is found on the property including eastern grey kangaroos (Macropus giganteus), short-beaked echidnas (Tachyglossus aculeatus) and a vast array of native frog and bird species. Bare-nosed wombats (Vombatus ursinus) are locally native and the owners rehabilitate rescued wombats on the property.
