Boom-Ber-Pee Private Nature Retreat was established by the owners over the majority of the 20 hectare site. Boom-Ber-Pee, meaning ‘koala’, was the name given by the Quandamooka people, the traditional owner of the lands here.
The site is located in the Koala Coast Corridor and has 3 distinct eco systems, namely:
- The Blackbutt Forests – are considered ‘endangered’
- Open Forest – is ‘of concern’ due to its importance in maintaining biodiversity
- The Spotted Gum forests – are also dominant on the site.
Over 80 species of birds call Boom-Ber-Pee home along with 2 species of wallabies, koalas, echidnas, gliders and possums, goannas, rocket frogs and so much more. Birds come to the bird feeders around the property and bird identification books and binoculars are available.
