“Bettens” 7the May, Cooran, Noosa


“In 1983 the hills around Cooran were bare. Massive rainforest and eucalypt trees had been felled for timber, followed by dairy farming, pineapples and other orchards. The landscape we see now is a direct result of these recent past land-uses. We first planted trees for timber, but soon after changed track as we wanted the trees to stay. They say ‘If you build it, they will come’, and that is exactly what has happened with this forest. Wildlife has arrived.”
