A total of 30 hectares has been set aside as open space and conservation areas throughout the Ashbury estate, including a healthy 16.5 hectares for tree retention, conservation and growth.

The landscape is home to protected flora and fauna in beautiful conservation areas such as Hoopers Paddock.

Ashbury offers a tranquil escape with many of the characteristic stag trees having been retained to provide important shelter for local wildlife and in recognition and preservation of Ashbury’s rich rural heritage. 

Parks and reserves feature indigenous plantings that are sympathetic to the bush land heritage of the landscape. And natural materials such as timber, brick and brush fencing are featured to enhance Ashbury’s country character.
