Previous experience

"Taldumande", Kurrajong - Rural residential development

An abandoned dairy farm at Kurrajong, western Sydney, had the Endangered Ecological Communities (EECs) Shale/Sandstone Transition Forest and Western Sydney Dry Rainforest, and was overgrown with weeds.

The final design consisted of one Community Lot containing the EECs, and the remaining area subdivided into smaller Lots, which required a change in zoning and a change to the LEP by the local Council.

Extensive weeding and planting has seen recovery in the EECís and infringing native grasslands.



Lantana Control

Abel Ecology was the only successful private proponent for funding to remove lantana in the EEC Shale/Sandstone Transition Forest. Funding for that project on private land was provided by Department of Environment and Climate Change (OEH).



Camden Lakeside Country Club

A degraded grazing property in western Sydney was redeveloped as a golf course and was subject to weeds, dryland salinity, erosion and turf grass insect pests. The remnant vegetation was the EEC Cumberland Plain Woodland for which a habitat restoration plan was implemented.


The course has been self sufficient for water for the life of the development. There has been a doubling of species of birds, reptiles and frogs, and insectivorous bats have increased from none to eight species.


One Endangered and one Vulnerable plant species have emerged on the site.



Liverpool City Council, Brickmakerís Creek reconstruction

A one-kilometre reach of Brickmakerís Creek at Liverpool was to be reconstructed for flood mitigation and habitat reconstruction. Abel Ecology had the role of designing an appropriate natural ecosystem reconstruction to reinstate riparian ecological functions. This included collaboration with the hydraulic engineer and council to develop a project management plan, vegetation and fauna habitat management, and a landscape plan.
