The Pilot Station house site is located within a public bushland reserve. From time to time mowing and community bush regeneration activities occur. If you wish to join the Pilot Stations Land Care team please let us know in advanced so the team can be informed and we will let you know what you will need to be covered under our insurance and OH&S protocols. Under no circumstance may guests plant or remove any vegetation from the Pilot Station grounds (except under direct supervision and direction from Ian our Land Care Co-ordinator).
The Pilot Station’s charter is to protect and conserve the natural and cultural heritage of the reserve and surrounding areas. Conserving Australia’s fauna and flora is an important part of the function of the Pilot Station. A diverse range of animals may be seen during a visit including goannas – (Lace Monitor), kangaroos, wallabies, and many birds. You may be extremely lucky and see an echidna.
There are other animals including snakes, lizards and spiders living around the property. A red bellied black snake has been sighted on occasions. Red-bellied black snakes are mostly active during the day, prefer swampy, moist areas and are not particularly aggressive. They are venomous. When threatened, they will flatten their bodies and hiss loudly, but will usually attempt to escape if possible. If you come across a snake, just calmly walk the other way. Ensure that you and your guests do not approach any wildlife.
