Halfway between Melbourne and Sydney is a very special property call Tarcutta Hills Reserve.  It is one of the largest remaining areas of grassy white box woodland left in Australia and is rich with plant and bird life, including Turquoise Parrots, Brown Treecreepers, Superb Parrots, Speckled Warblers, Black-chinned Honeyeaters, Hooded Robins and Diamond Firetails.

It is also provides vital habitat for the endangered Swift Parrot as it migrates between Tasmania, Victoria and New South Wales. This trip is timed to maximise our chance of seeing the Swift Parrot, but it's not the main focus of the visit.

Bush Heritage has owned Tarcutta Hills since 1999. This trip provides you with a great chance hear about our work on the property and experience the place first hand.

While the winter nights may be chilly, we will have a lovely warm fire to gather around in the evenings.
