Wildlife Land Trust / Sanctuaries / QLD / Richard’s Refuge

Richard Scothern is the owner of Richard’s Refuge, a property located in Trinity Beach, approximately 20km north of Cairns, Queensland. The property is a residence and dedicated wildlife sanctuary, also used to graze livestock. This property is the only wildlife-friendly block in the area, and Richard intends for it to remain as such.

The property covers approximately 1.5 hectares and consists mainly of native grasslands and eucalypt forest. Wildlife found on the property includes agile wallabies (Macropus agilis) as well as various native bird species including brush turkeys (Alectura lathami) and orange-footed scrubfowl (Megapodius reinwardt).
