Wild Wings & Swampy Things is the home of Barbara Maslen and Allen Sheather. This 40ha property is a Nature Refuge situated on Barratt Creek in Daintree, Queensland, Australia.
Once cleared and marginally productive farming land it has, over the last 35 years, been restored to a productive eco-system inhabited by many species of both resident and migratory wildlife. The various habitats represented on the property support a diverse bird population, numerous reptiles, amphibians, small mammals and an abundance of insect life.
Our house is a simple, practical design giving us a cool, well ventilated living space with beautiful views of the garden. The long wide verandah provides a comfortable outdoor area in which to relax and enjoy the birds.
