Description

Margaret and Peter Hall are the owners of Wayilahr, a sanctuary situated in Wilsons Creek, approximately 13km west of Mullumbimby, NSW. Margaret and Peter recently purchased the property with the intent to maintain it as a wildlife sanctuary. They plan to transition the property's unmaintained macadamia plantation into rainforest, and are currently managing weeds on the property.

Wayilahr covers 15.13 hectares and consists of mixed North Coast Subtropical Rainforest, North Coast Wet Sclerophyll Forest and North Coast Dry Sclerophyll Forest.

Wildlife known to inhabit the sanctuary includes swamp wallabies (Wallabia bicolor), koalas (Phascolarctos cinereus) and red-necked pademelons (Thylogale thetis). The property also houses a diverse array of birdlife including yellow-tailed black cockatoos (Calyptorhynchus funereus), satin bowerbirds (Ptilonorhynchus violaceus), Wompoo fruit doves (Ptilinopus magnificus), marbled frogmouths (Podargus ocellatus) and wedge-tailed eagles (Aquila audax).
