The Wild Mountains Trust is an independent, community focussed, non-profit organisation providing leadership in environmental education and conservation.

The Trust has acquired land south of Rathdowney adjoining the World Heritage Border Ranges National Park for a nature reserve and venue for education. On this magnificent site a world class Centre is being built. Here, using the unique purpose-built residential facility, quality experiential environmental education for the whole community will be provided.

In subtropical and eucalypt forests participants will have the opportunity to discover an amazing natural world. At the same time Wild Mountains can reinforce its educational programs with examples of renewable power generation.

Lantana… love the stuff… well sort of. When it comes to weeds it’s my favourite.


It’s leaves smell nice, it has lovely flowers, it seems to enrich the soil and even provides a home for birds.

All things considered we are excited to be able to report that we have successfully lodged the BA with council.

Lizz has done wonders to collate all the various pieces of data required to enable council to approve the thing.

It seems funny to me that with all their technology and staff they still require us to do their photocopying for them and submit 3 copies of everything and 4 of some others.

Still I suppose it keeps the printers in business.

Our profound thanks go out to Rob Peagram, Alison Orr, John Zhang, Dennis Edwards, Emma Scragg, Shaun O'Donnell, Ray (the fire guy), Jo Grodecki & Richard for all thier help in putting all this together. We now await council's response on what we have missed.
