David G Stead Memorial Wild Life Research Foundation of Australia
Wirrimbirra Sanctuary is a 95 hectare property that was created in the 1960s by Thistle Harris, in memory of her husband David Stead, to preserve the original 'Bargo Brush' and Australia's flora and fauna, and promote the use and propagation of Australian native plants. (David Stead and Thistle Harris were 2 of the pioneers of the Australian Conservation movement.)
Today Wirrimbirra continues to operate as a flora and fauna sanctuary and is a unique example of the original Australian bush. The Sanctuary's main focus remains to preserve the last remnants of the Bargo Brush, to educate the general public on Australian environmental and wildlife issues, and to propagate and promote Australian plants.
Our vision is to foster an awareness of the unique natural and cultural heritage of Australian wildlife and environment and to promote conservation of these values.
