The Ashbury landscape is imbued with rustic charm, a relic of its history as a former farming land site. There is an abundance of protected flora and fauna on estate grounds, as well beautiful conservation areas nearby, such as Hoopers Paddock.
Many of the characteristic stag trees will be retained to provide important shelter for local wildlife. Parks and reserves will feature indigenous plantings that are in harmony with the area’s historic bushland, while natural materials such as timber, brick and brush fencing will be featured to enhance Ashbury’s country character.
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.
Keeping active is easy with over 8.6 hectares devoted to cricket and football ovals, including cricket practice nets, a lawn bowls green and netball courts. There will also be playgrounds and two ‘pocket parks’ throughout the estate. More than 18km of shared walking and cycling paths provide family-friendly activity and safe on-road cycling. Best of all, this extensive network of paths connects with the greater Armstrong Creek precinct.
Whether you want to build sandcastles, ride some waves or walk through stunning coastal bushland, there’s no shortage of places where you can feel the sand beneath your feet and taste salt in the air.
