NATURE LOVERS

CRATER welcomes special interest groups with a passion for ecology, the natural environment, and conservation. There are extensive forests and waterways at Goondicum where nature lovers can observe native species in their natural habitat.

Located in an ancient volcanic crater with a river gorge running through it, the property is rich in wildlife. Whether you’re looking for a colony of rock wallabies in the gorge or observing flocks of glossy black cockatoos streaming across the skies at sunset, Goondicum is a hive of biodiversity.

Animals on the property include:

WHO WE WELCOME

As CRATER is located on a private working cattle station, the site is not open to the public. Only those groups who align with the objectives of CRATER will be considered for entry on this private property.

Having said that, who we do welcome is a very broad church! From frogging groups to birdwatchers to conservation groups and amateur biologists, we welcome people who love nature and have a genuine interest in understanding how it can coexist alongside agriculture.

With thousands of hectares of natural habitat, there are many areas of interest to explore at CRATER. One of our team members will be available to guide visitors around the property and provide general assistance.

ACCOMMODATION & FACILITIES

There is accommodation available on site for visiting groups, with a mixture of a fixed ‘donga’ style building and tents set at the foot of Mt Goondicum. Onsite catering can be provided.  See our FACILITIES page for details of our ‘base camp’.
