This property has had a colourful history.  The previous owner developed it as a motor cross training park which divided the community.  There were major earthworks done to create jumps which lead to disputes with council.  When it was purchased by the present owners in July of 2007, the first job at hand was to restore the natural land fall,  particularly in the riparian zone of the Obi Obi creek.  There are still areas of the property to be restored, however this is a work in progress.

There was a major cleanup ahead and the removal of all internal barbed wire fencing that was no longer required.  It poses a great threat to wildlife and with some help from the Wildlife Friendly Fencing project, the boundary fencing was also replaced and with the use of a top strand of sighter wire, this drastically reduced the risk of future entanglements.
