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.
Birds come to the bird feeders around the property and bird identification books and binoculars are available.
