Curricabark, NSW - 245 hectares - 0 bedrooms - 0 bathrooms - 1 garages


Curricabark Wildlife Refuge is a 245 hectare (600 acre) sanctuary situated between Woko and Barrington Tops National Parks, one hour’s drive north-west of Gloucester in NSW.  As a registered Wildlife Refuge for 40 years and a Conservation Agreement in place with the NSW Environment Minister since 2017, Curricabark is a significant conservation reserve. Its habitats consist of Dry Rainforest Vine Thickets, Open Forest and Low Woodland, including red and white stringybark, red gum and grey box, and with 30 threatened species known to occur within a 10 mile radius.

There are spectacular views from the top of the rainforest ridge. Koalas and glossy black cockatoos are two threatened species of note on the Refuge which also protects a threatened rainforest climber, a rare moth species of conservation significance, white-headed pigeons and brown treecreepers.

There is currently no road access. For 40 years we have walked for five minutes along the fence line, or driven a four wheel drive to the nominal entrance. There is a legal right of way, but could also be possible to re-open an old track by the eastern fence line in cooperation with the next-door land owner.

The Refuge is fenced on two sides with a dam that needs repairing and a permanent stream. Curricabark is eligible for NSW conservation management grants, and there is a 15 acre exclusion zone included in the Conservation Agreement for building or other purposes. We are unable to take interested parties to view but can provide a map directing you to the Refuge heading out of Gloucester. We are looking for the very best home possible for Curricabark, with a very low asking price of $120,000.
