Beachfront Lots at Skennars Head

Beachfront Lots at Skennars Head

The beachfront Aureus community at Skennars Head has reached a milestone with titles for the first stages expected in the coming weeks.  While most home sites in these stages are sold, a limited number are available, which means no waiting periods for purchasers ready to build.

On the Coast Road with uninterrupted views over Sharpes Beach to Flat Rock, Aureus will encompass 4.6 hectares of parklands and a village centre with its very own ‘local’.

Between the Ballina Nature Reserve wetlands and Aureus a conservation buffer is being established, based on the Skennars Head Wetland Rehabilitation and Monitoring Plan.  ‘We are nine months into the five year rehabilitation plan’ outlined Trent Doyle from Horizon 5, who are working with Intrapac Property to implement environmental programs.  ‘Our work in the wetland buffer has already shown a high success rate of native species regrowth and eradication of weeds’.

Horizon 5 are also working on the Skennars Head Wildlife Corridor Restoration Plan, which aims to improve connectivity for native fauna between the wetland and vegetation to the south.  ‘We have recently commenced planting trees within the corridor, with thousands more planned for the coming months’ said Trent.

Eventually the planting will extend from these wetlands to Flat Rock, to create a buffer between Skennars Head and East Ballina.

The trees and plants for these projects have been supplied by the Cumbalum Farm native plant nursery next to Bayhan Hill residential community. Cumbalum Farm was set up by Horizon 5 on behalf of Intrapac Property to ensure a steady and high quality supply of native plants for both Aureus and Banyan Hill.  Through the wetland and wildlife corridor rehabilitation works and growing of trees at the nursery, Cumbalum Farm provides permanent employment and training for a dozen locals, from experienced bushland regenerators to trainees.

Land currently for sale at Aureus is priced from $493,000 to $653,000 for home sites between 451m2 and 661m2.
