NSW: Roseberry Forest Hermitage - Sonja Tritapepe and Arne Schaafsma

 

Sonja and Arne are the current caretakers of 'Roseberry Forest Hermitage'. The property is located approximately 30km north-west of Kyogle and is part of the upper catchment area of the Richmond River. Geographical features include gullies, plateaus, steep and undulating areas and a riparian zone. The riparian zone borders Roseberry Creek on the north-eastern side of the property while Toonumbar National Park borders the south-western side. As a result, the property acts as a wildlife corridor between these two locations.

Roseberry Forest Hermitage covers 44.08 hectares with the majority of the land consisting of rainforest and wet sclerophyll forest. There is a small area cleared for a residence and there are 3 paddocks of various sizes. Since moving to the property a large amount of bush regeneration has been done and continues to be carried out, with the aim to enhance and protect the native flora and fauna. The intention is to continue to utilise the property for conservation purposes and to dedicate the property as a wildlife sanctuary. Currently Arne and Sonja are in the process of placing a Conservation Covenant on the property.
