Destination Conservation Experience - Outback Conservation - Ironbark Station - South East Queenslan

333 Bennetts Road, Morningside, Queensland, 4170

Help protect and create habitat for threatened Australian wildlife.

The Ironbark Station at Blackbutt is a 1400 hectare property located 170km north West of Brisbane. In 1994 the property was purchased for conservation by Steve Irwin (Crikey!) and Australia Zoo. Ironbark is a designated wildlife sanctuary with a rehabilitation facility and a full-time wildlife rehabilitator for injured and orphaned iconic Australian macropods – kangaroos, wallabies, bettongs, pademelons and potoroos, and other wildlife including possums, gliders, cockatoos and birds of prey. So far over 44,000 trees have been planted and future plans are in place to continue habitat restoration, further expand sanctuary facilities and re-introduce critically endangered local species into the landscape.

Join us for this off the beaten track adventure and experience the magic of the Australian bush while making a meaningful contribution to wildlife conservation!

Carry on Steve Irwin’s legacy by helping to rehabilitate a property that was purchased by the Crocodile hunter himself!
