Sprites at Swanport creek

 

TAS: The Sprites at Swanport - Bart Jenniches and Kelly Blackford

 

Bart and Kelly are the owners of The Sprites at Swanport, a property located north of Triabunna. The property is a dedicated wildlife sanctuary with large portions of the land protected in-perpetuity by a conservation covenant. It is Bart and Kelly's intent to continue to protect the native bushland allowing the land to recover from its previous uses for grazing and agriculture and, ultimately, to serve as a wildlife corridor through to an adjoining Nature Reserve.

 

Sprites at Swanport undulating hills

 

The Sprites at Swanport covers 80.9 hectares comprising of a variety of vegetation types, from open tussock and themeda grasslands, through dryland scrub, to mature dry sclerophyll woodland. All atop an equally diverse undulating landscape of hilltop vistas with views to the coast, open paddocks and closed bush, rocky hillocks, secluded gullies and breathtaking views along the river basin.
