TAS: Lumera Chalets - Peter and Ian Power-Lawrence
Peter and Ian Power-Lawrence are the owners of 'Lumera Chalets', a property located approximately 10km south of Scamander. The property is a dedicated wildlife sanctuary offering eco-friendly accommodation in the form of three solar-powered chalets. It is Peter and Ian's intent for it to continue to be used for the benefit of the local environment, with the 24 hectares of the property formally recognised as a Private Nature Reserve. The sanctuary is also a member of Land for Wildlife and the Protected Areas on Private Land Program.
