Wildlife Land Trust / Sanctuaries / NSW / Nerring Hill

Timothy Pembroke and Louise Pryor are the owners of Nerring Hill, a property situated in Bendalong, approximately 50km south of Nowra, New South Wales. The property is a private residence and dedicated wildlife sanctuary, featuring a vegetable garden and open walking areas. Timothy and Louise are planning to rehabilitate the riparian zones along the creek, while maintaining the land for its current uses.

Nerring Hill spans 10 hectares at the bottom of an alluvial valley, featuring rich soils and high biodiversity. The property adjoins Conjola National Park, forming habitat corridors through its riparian creek zones. The property and its wildlife corridors were devastated by the Currowan Fire in 2020.

The property is home to an abundance of wildlife including eastern grey kangaroos (Macropus giganteus), swamp (Wallabia bicolor) and red-necked (Macropus rufogriseus) wallabies, bare-nosed wombats (Vombatus ursinus), superb lyrebirds (Menura novaehollandiae), red-bellied black snakes (Pseudechis porphyriacus), ducks and a wide range of native frogs and birdlife.
