Whilst together we are all affected in various ways through this extremely challenging time, we must continue to create the world we believe in. We must protect the world we want to see and ensure it exists for our children and the future.
We aren’t letting the pandemic stop us. In fact, we’re not slowing down.
We have a very unique and special opportunity to buy Lot 24 Cape Tribulation Road.
This beautiful rainforest is near prior rescues and connects directly to the National Park. It is in close proximity to 10 properties protected by Rainforest Rescue that form the Cape Kimberley Wildlife Corridor and the Milky Pine Wildlife Refuge; its protection further enhances these areas.
