OUR LITTLE SLICE OF EARTH
17 years ago, my parents purchased five acres of uncleared, rugged land and began transforming it into the eco-sanctuary that 'The Wild Exchange' calls home.
Our family have seen three generations run barefoot through its' forest of melaleucas. But we acknowledge and pay our respects to the traditional custodians of this land, the Gubbi Gubbi people, and we recognise their continuing connection to this land. The trees we gratefully seek shade from today, hold stories of wisdom and courage from long before our time.
We also share this land with families of Kangaroos, Wallabies, and plenty of native birdlife. In the rain, we welcome a generous population of mosquitos. And in the summer, if you look hard enough you might find a snake, but you only have to open your eyes to see a toad! We are in Queensland after all.
Today, the nature walks, food forest, and mud kitchen that make this property a nature-play haven, are open to the Sunshine Coast's most curious little explorers.
In 2022, we will be relocating to our new Lake MacDonald slice of native paradise. Boasting 2.5acres of elevated land with nature walks through Koala habitat, our new nature play sanctuary is going to be breathtaking!
We can't wait to welcome you and your family soon!
