THE LAND

TOWERING MANNA GUMS AND BLACKWOOD TREES FORM A DENSE CANOPY IN WHICH KOOKABURRAS SIT STILL IN THE NATIVE BUSHLAND SURROUNDS. KING PARROTS JOSTLE IN BRANCHES NEARBY WHILE THE BLACK AND WHITE FLASH OF A TINY FINCH RUSTLES THE UNDERGROWTH.

The Hummingbird Eco-Retreat sits on 76 acres of National Trust bushland with one of its main features being The Endeavour Fern Gully. Of historical and scientific significance, the site is home to a wide variety of plants and animals and has links to the original landowners, the Bunerong people.

Massive tree ferns on the site provide a backdrop for a wide variety of native grasses, mosses, lillies and orchids and two rare plants: the Silk Pod and Austral Mulberry.

As one of the remaining damp forest habitats on the Mornington Peninsula the area is also an important seedbank for future revegetation programs in the area to which the Hummingbird Eco-Retreat is committed.

Hummingbird Eco-Retreat offers direct access to The Endeavour Fern Gully which is available to guests as part of a number of retreat packages and business conference activities.
