BushBank Revolving Fund
Imagine a future where ecosystems are protected and species decline has been halted...
Operating within the real estate marketplace, BushBank SA facilitates long-term protection and conservation of valuable areas of remnant native vegetation.
BushBank SA has sound business relationships with the rural real estate industry and is a key player vital for making connections between sellers, buyers and the new conservation land marketplace.
Under the program, land with high conservation value is purchased, a covenant is applied and the land is re-sold to owners with the means and commitment to manage it for conservation.
The process includes assessing the suitability of the native vegetation on the property for a nature conservation covenant (a Heritage Agreement under the Native Vegetation Act) and ensuring it meets land acquisition criteria, preparing a management plan and assisting the new owners with this stewardship.
BushBank SA's Role
BushBank SA works to:
- Make a long-lasting contribution to the conservation of valuable native vegetation on private land
- Provide a benefit to the community through the preservation of South Australia’s beautiful natural environment
- Assist new owners to make an important contribution to our natural environment
- Return all proceeds from sales to the fund to support further purchases and to protect our natural environment.
Threatened species and ecosystems already protected through the BushBank SA program include:
- Southern brown bandicoot
- Diamond firetail
- Peppermint box woodland
“I love spending time camping out there, exploring the block and having my 'nature breaks'. Buying one of the Blanchetown blocks has been one of the best decisions I have ever made.”

Current properties for sale
Blanchetown Bushland Estate
3 allotments available. This 10,000 ha conservation estate comprises 11 community title allotments of between 900 and 964 ha each. There are three allotments left for sale.
Located 6 km west of Blanchetown, adjacent to the Brookfield Conservation Park, this beautiful patch of Mallee Woodland also has some open sugarwood areas and is bustling with wombats, echidnas and birds.
Access throughout the estate is by un-formed tracks in good condition. To reduce the impact on the movement of native animals, particularly kangaroos and wombats, fences within the estate are not permitted. Water is available to all properties through the community title but there is no power connection. Each property has a one-hectare parcel set aside to build your getaway home or weekender (subject to Nature Foundation approval).
