What makes us an ECO park?

The entire park is deep sewered and does not impact on local groundwater
We support the local economy / purchase local and eco-friendly goods
Re-cycling bins have been installed which take paper, plastic and glass
A composting programme is on-going for use on the park grounds.
No wood fires are allowed and heating is provided by reverse cycle air-conditioning which is proven to be energy efficient.
Installed an 18.8kw solar photovoltaic system with 66 solar panels and a 60 tube solar hot water system, both generating over 158kw of power per day. Reducing the parks carbon emissions by an estimated 15% or 53 tonnes per year. Energy efficient lighting and timers are used in and around the park
Over 1600 native trees and plants have been planted on the property. This helps in reducing the salinity levels in the ground and helps fight erosion
Of paramount importance was keeping the existing Western Ringtail Possum families (Psuedocheirusoccidentalis) on the property. These have been identified as schedule 1 endangered species i.e. they are in danger of becoming extinct within ten years. A number of artificial nets were constructed from old doormats, grass and shredded bark and lodges into the forks of peppermint trees to act as new homes.
We are regularly in touch with the Busselton Wildlife and Possum Environment Centre keeping up to date on how to care for our Park’s Possum Family. Information leaflets are given to our guests and also advise on how best to view the possums at night.
