The Gaangan property is approximately 128ha and contains a rainforest wonderland perched high up on the Dorrigo Plateau. With magnificent views north towards Cascade National Park and a frontage to the Little Murray River which is in the Clarence River catchment. The property is about 30 minutes from the township of Dorrigo and a further 90 to Coffs Harbour which provides some of the most spectacular scenery along the New South Wales coastline. A 2WD access road on the property leads to a possible house site subject to council approval (STCA) where sensitive design could capture the northern scenery over the Dorrigo Plateau.
Gaangan contains rainforest communities that also support the particularly significant Antarctic Beech (Nothofagus moorei) which is an important Gondwana relic of rainforests in the southern hemisphere. This species' origins can be traced back to a time when Australia was connected to Antarctica and Africa some 175 million years ago. Nowhere in the BCT property portfolio have we protected this species, making Gaangan a unique contribution to the BCT family.
One threatened frog species, the Pouched Frog (Assa darlingtoni), has been recorded on site by the BCT. It is expected that a range of other threatened species, both plants and animals, occur onsite.
Currently there are no improvements, however, dwellings are permissible STCA. It would also make a practical base for bushwalkers, river rafters or kayakers as the region is renowned for the multitude of rivers including the Bellinger and the Nymboida.
