NSW: Cabins in the Clouds - Sean Collier

 

Sean Collier is the owner of Cabins in the Clouds, a property located approximately 40km north of Maitland. The property is a wildlife-friendly sanctuary offering short-term eco-accommodation in the form of boutique bushland cabins. It is Sean's intent for the property to continue in these purposes.

 

Cabins in the Clouds covers approximately 5 hectares at the top of Mount George, on the edge of an escarpment with views across to Barrington Tops. There are four cabins on the property, plus a common building and two sheds.

 

The natural vegetation of the site is a typical dry sclerophyll forest with an adjacent small segment of a dry rainforest. The forest classification is a Spotted Gum – Iron Bark Forest and this classification applies to the general forest of the area. Due to clearing (possibly for fire control) there is very little understorey. From a recent survey, flora on the property of note includes broad leafed grass trees (Xanthorrhoea arborea), which are common, but these are enormous, possibly more than 2000 years old; flax lilies (Dianella longifolia); three-leafed water vine (Tetrastigma nitens) a very large specimen; stiff jasmine (Jasminum volubile); slender grape (Cayratia clematidea); hairy cleros (Clerodendron tomentosum); rough-fruited pittosporums (Pittosporum undulatum); kurrajongs (Brachychiton populneus); red ashes (Alphitonia excels); hairy birds eyes (Alectryon tomentosa); native quinces (Alectryon subcinereus) and prickly moses' (Acacia ulicifolia).


Wildlife known to inhabit the property includes eastern grey kangaroos (Macropus giganteus), Bennetts wallabies (M. rufogriseus), euro wallaroos (M. robustus), short-beaked echidnas (Tachyglossus aculeatus); bare-nosed wombats (Vombatus ursinus); eastern long-necked turtles (Chelodina longicollis), green tree snakes (Dendrelaphis punctulata), red-bellied black snakes (Pseudechis porphyriacus), eastern brown snakes (Pseudonaja textilis), diamond pythons (Morelia spilota), wedge-tailed eagles (Aquila audax), yellow-tailed black-cockatoos (Calyptorhynchus funereus), crimson rosellas (Platycercus elegans), brushtail possums (Trichosurus vulpecula), king parrots (Alisterus scapularis), wonga pigeons (Leucosarcia melanoleuca), laughing kookaburras (Dacelo novaeguineae), lace monitors (Varanus varius), grey-headed flying foxes (Pteropus poliocephalus), microbats and various other frogs, birds and small marsupials.
