Woodlands Sanctuary is the private property of Garth and Audrey Willey, bought back in 1977 'on impulse.' The property is 16 hectares (220 metres frontage by 725 metres depth) in an area classified as "Rural Conservation."

It has been registered with the Victorian DNRE "Land for Wildlife" scheme since 1992 and the bush areas are the habitat of many flora and fauna species. Wombats, wallabies and echidnas are common - as are rabbits, foxes and bull ants! And less frequently spied creatures are goannas, kangaroos, koala bears, fallow deer, snakes, scorpions and the like.

Bird life abounds, attracted by the native vegetation; and favourites are the kookaburras, wedge-tailed eagles, robins and wrens visiting in wintertime, and the periodic migration of gang-gang cockatoos.
