Scott Barber is the owner of Ouroboros, a property situated in Woodside, approximately 20km west of Tenterfield, New South Wales. Scott recently purchased the property with the intention of regenerating the land and enhancing its biodiversity.

The property covers 127 hectares, with around 66 hectares comprised of native vegetation with some cleared areas.

A wide range of wildlife is present on the property including brush-tailed rock wallabies (Petrogale penicillata), eastern grey kangaroos (Macropus giganteus), brushtail possums (Trichosurus vulpecula), short-beaked echidnas (Tachyglossus aculeatus), Bell’s turtles (Myuchelys bellii), wood geckos (Diplodactylus vittatus), laughing kookaburras (Dacelo novaeguineae), magpies (Gymnorhina tibicen), Torresian crows (Corvus orru) and grassbirds.
