Protected Property # 15
Lot 83 Rosewood Rd, Cow Bay, Qld, australia

Lot-83-Rosewood-Road-Street-SignLot 83 Rosewood Road (RP 738146) is a 1 hectare property that was purchased and protected buy Rainforest Rescue in June 2011. It is the sixth protected property to be included in the Baralba Corridor Nature Refuge.

The Refuge was named by local Aboriginal people, the kuki yalanji, with the word 'Baralba' meaning 'wildlife track'. The corridor provides a vital link between two isolated areas of the Daintree National Park/World Heritage Area.


The property is located north of the Alexandra Range in the Cow Bay precinct. The property lies adjacent to Rainforest Rescue’s 5th property, Lot 97 Rosewood Road. It’s purchase has therefore effectively increased the size of the Corridor which has been identified as essential habitat for the Endangered Southern Cassowary (Casuarius Casuarius johnsonii).

Although it lies within the Rainforest Conservation Precinct, Lot 83 Rosewood Road was one of the few remaining properties in the area that still had building approval. It’s purchase by Rainforest Rescue has ensured this property is not developed and indeed, protected forever.
