Opening Wormholes to a cleaner future.

In early 2019 we began renovating a waterfront property which required a septic system upgrade to handle both human and greywater waste more effectively whilst being substantially more sympathetic to its natural surrounds.  Keeping in mind our 10-year campaign to attract environmentally conscious visitors wishing to experience the rare natural gamut of what our nature accommodation sanctuaries offer was bearing fruit, we also wanted to future-proof our dwellings by shifting the purpose of existing waste infrastructure, but avoid the environmental impact of decommissioning what we originally acquired.

Therefore, our prerequisites were obvious—the system(s) had to be the most environmentally apposite without the need for harsh chemicals or constant maintenance; ‘the availability of such, was not so.’ But while researching suitable types for our above needs, Willie (our Construction Manager), discovered a novel worm-farm system available in other states by A & A Worm Farms that could meet all our requirements—as well as—the additional bene?t of coping with the disposal of environmental weeds accumulated from our regular environmental restorations (wildlife habitat initiative); unfortunately, the system was not yet approved in Tasmania.

The next step, was to rectify this situation and have this extreme green and fabulously efficient system approved by our local Kingborough Council. So, with a few phone-calls and subsequent emails between all parties concerned, we are ecstatic to announce the first two Worm Farm waste managers of their type in Tasmania!

The smaller system is attached to our latest accommodation offering, St. Claires; and whilst our guests are flushing, our worms are flourishing.  The other larger system is situated at Cloudy Bay where we manage all operational bio waste—and when the time arises—‘Sludge’ from our other sanctuary dwellings.  

We would like to acknowledge, recommend, and thank Alan Duke from A & A Worms Farms along with the vision of Kingborough Council for effectively allowing us to operate a completely in-house and self-contained environmentally friendly waste management system that we couldn’t be prouder of!

Like what we do? Then why not rewild yourself at one of our nature accommodation sanctuaries—and support the direct preservation and maintenance of our various habitat initiatives.
