'Bronte Views' comprises 7 forested blocks on the ridge-line between Bronte Park and London Lakes (about 6km south east of Bronte Park and about 20km east of Derwent Bridge). With sunny house sites, views, good roads and quick and easy access to great trout fishing, these recreational blocks offer great value for money to anyone looking for their own patch of bush in the central highlands.

The properties contain a mix of different forest types providing good habitat diversity and some very attractive bush. Good regeneration is occurring along the ridge-line where logging has occurred. The property provides suitable habitat for several threatened fauna species, including Wedge-tailed Eagles and Tasmanian Devils.
Protecting the Conservation Values
To provide permanent protection for the conservation values on the property, the TLC registers Conservation Covenants against the titles of the land prior to sale. Part of each title will be excluded from the covenants to allow for use and development by future owners. Within these areas future owners may clear vegetation, construct a home and undertake all the usual activities associated with residential use (subject to Council approval where required). Elsewhere on the blocks the covenants restrict any activities that may degrade the conservation values of the land, but still allow for essential management activities (such as construction and maintenance of boundary fences) and for appropriate recreational activities (eg walking and walking tracks).
A management plan will be developed with the new owners, ensuring that they are able to manage any threats to conservation values into the future. The TLC is also able to offer ongoing advice and assistance to the new owners in managing the natural values of the land.
Infrastructure and Services
Legal access to the properties is via direct frontage to Victoria Valley Rd. The nearest services are available 6km away in Bronte Park, which contains a shop, restaurant/bar and fuel.
This property was acquired as part of the New Leaf Project through the generous support of philanthropist Jan Cameron. Proceeds from the sale of this property will be used to repay the outstanding debt to Ms Cameron.
