Davydd Shaw's happy place

"In the bush, magic comes to you when you slow down and be very quiet, listening to the breeze’s gentle whoosh through the casuarina, observing a curious fairy-wren, or the cheeky laughter that stirs when catching an unperturbed wombat waddle."

My happy place (Judy Henderson)

My happy place is nestled between the dunes and ocean at Tuckers Rock, north of the Bellinger River’s entrance. Freshwater flows east from the mountains, it thunders down waterfalls into calm, clear pools, navigates green paddocks and rainforests, before emerging through Melaleuca-stained estuaries and spilling into the Pacific Ocean.

In Memory of Margaret Anne Wilson

Bob and Margie Wilson spent a brief period in the early days of their life together enjoying the stunning landscapes of the Stirling Ranges in the Fitz-Stirling region of Western Australia. Recently, I spoke with Bob who reached out to Bush Heritage in a really profound way - to give a gift to honour Margie, who sadly passed away last September. Enclosed with his donation was a beautiful letter which he's kindly allowed us to share.

John’s lasting legacy at Boolcoomatta

It was an emotional moment for Meredith Geyer and her family as they arrived at South Australia's Boolcoomatta Reserve and entered the renovated shearers' quarters. Fixed to the wall beside the fireplace is a stained timber board acknowledging the generous donors and benefactors who have helped to fund Bush Heritage's work at Boolcoomatta. Meredith's father, John Weightman, who passed away two years ago, is the latest name to be included on the plaque.
