Two-thirds of Highfield protects Box Gum Grassy Woodland – a critically endangered habitat. This habitat now only exists in 5% of its former range. The remaining one-third of Highfield is largely native grass pasture. Disturbingly native temperate grasslands only exist in 1% of their former range and yet are not protected. These statistics have resulted in us considering the whole of Highfield as a site for environmental repair.

This is our purpose, our motivation.

At Highfield, everything we do is aimed at addressing the climate and extinction crisis, increasing biodiversity, protecting our soils and improving the health of our waterways.
