Wildlife Land Trust / Sanctuaries / NSW / Mookerwah Station

Glen Thomson is the owner of Mookerwah Station, a property situated in Mookerwah, approximately 30km northwest of Bega, New South Wales. The property is a home and dedicated wildlife sanctuary, also used to rehabilitate native species and for honey production. The property was severely burned during the Black Summer bushfires, and along with his rehabilitation work Glen is currently cleaning up and regenerating native vegetation.

The property spans approximately 303.5 hectares adjoining Brogo Dam, Jacobs Creek, Gillroy Creek and Magic Creek, and is situated close to Wadbilliga National Park. The land largely consists of steep to undulating native forest. Vegetation is dominated by stringybark woodland and mahogany forest, along with areas currently undergoing revegetation.

A vast array of native species are present on the property including spotted-tailed quolls (Dasyurus maculatus), long-nosed bandicoots (Perameles nasuta), bare-nosed wombats (Vombatus ursinus), brush-tailed rock wallabies (Petrogale penicillata), red-necked (Macropus rufogriseus) and swamp (Wallabia bicolor) wallabies, platypuses (Ornithorhynchus anatinus), short-beaked echidnas (Tachyglossus aculeatus), eastern grey kangaroos (Macropus giganetus), mountain brushtail possums (Trichosurus cunninghami), koalas (Phascolarctos cinereus) and cockatoos.
