Secret Creek Sanctuary

Located on Wiradjuri country in Lithgow, on the edge of Newnes Plateau and the Blue Mountains World Heritage Area, Secret Creek Sanctuary was established in 2003 with the creation of the Eastern Quoll breeding facility.

 

The next step in developing Secret Creek as a conservation reserve was to construct a ten acre feral-proof fence to exclude foxes, cats, wild dogs and rabbits from the area, creating a protected bushland environment. Within the sanctuary, many breeding conservation programs have been established to secure the future of threatened native species; including pure-bred Dingos, Parma Wallabies, Long-nosed Potoroos, endangered Spotted-tailed Quolls and Brush-tailed Rock-wallabies, as well as Red-necked Pademelons and Emus.

 

Secret Creek Sanctuary is the keystone of AEFI's wildlife conservation programs. Many of the species that are in captive breeding programs at Secret Creek will eventually be reintroduced to their natural habitats.
