Two guided tours at Portobello on Monday 26th April through a property that is ‘forever protected’ under a QEII covenant with owner Shaun Murphy. Good level of fitness required and not suitable for children. Tours at 10am-11.30am and 3pm-4.30pm - maximum 12 people per tour.

Meet at Portobello Hall and carpool to property.

Shaun and Helen Murphy are the proud owners of a rewilding property and we thank them for sharing their place for this event.

Shaun has provided some background information on aptly named 'Possums' End'. "In the 1950s Dicksons Hill was almost entirely sheep pasture. By the late 1960s and early '70s global downturns made this marginal land uneconomic to farm. gorse and kānuka started to invade pasture and in wetter areas broadleaf forest started to return. Forest succession is underway and we have placed 10ha of the property under QEII covenants, ensuring that the forest continues to grow for future generations. We encourage this rewilding of the land by carrying out intensive multi species predator control of introduced mammals, selective removal of some weed species and replanting of some keystone species of tree that would otherwise not make it back naturally."

The walk is not particularly child friendly because of the various hazards - tree nettle, drops offs, steep tracks, etc.

A good level of physical fitness is required and mobility as it involves a steep climb and uneven ground.

You are welcome after the walk to have a cup of tea or coffee at the Portobello Hall kitchen as we will be setting up for the Post Possum event that evening.

We ask that you carpool from Portobello because there is limited space to park at the property.

Should it be wet this event will be cancelled for Health and Safety reasons.
