“Tarwyn Park” is a living blueprint for landscape restoration in the 21st century.
It has been the developmental cradle of Peter Andrews’ “Natural Sequence Farming” approach to the repair of broken landscapes and it is historically significant as having been one of Australia’s leading thoroughbred horse studs.
Hundreds of thousands of people across the country have gotten to know Tarwyn Park and the Andrews family through Australian Story.
Korean company KEPCO has purchased the property, which the Andrews family has been leasing back. But KEPCO takes over full control of Tarwyn Park from the Andrews family on August 1st. KEPCO is planning to develop its enormous Bylong open-cut and underground coal mine on and around Tarwyn Park
But just because KEPCO now owns the place it doesn't mean they should be allowed to do with it whatever they want.
Tarwyn Park should be heritage listed not only to preserve the history of a significant Australian thoroughbred stud but also – and even more importantly – to showcase the brilliance of Peter Andrews’ pioneering Natural Sequence Farming methods.
All levels of government – local, state and federal – need to work together to make this happen. And we need your help to make sure all the key decision makers get the message loud and clear.
