Duffy's Forest, NSW, Australia
Waratah Park Nature Reserve Foundation is dedicated to the preservation of the Iconic home of Skippy the Bush Kangaroo, and the location of the hit 1960’s TV series. Located at Duffy’s Forest in Sydney, this beautiful 13 hectare property is under constant threat of development. Our group is dedicated to making sure that this does not happen. We do not want to see another piece of Australian history lost to development. As one supporter has aptly said “Knocking down Waratah Park would be like knocking down the Opera House”.

Friday 21st August, 2009

Today I contacted several people in relation to being able to save the Park.
The first person I contacted was a representative of Prudentia Investments.
Had a long chat with him in regards to what was going on but got the feeling that
they are not to bothered about the whole thing. Was told that they are open to ideas
of how to best use the site, that they had put forward some planning to the council and had been rejected.
So I rang council, had a lovely long chat with a guy there, only to discover we have a little bit of conflicting information.
I decided then that I needed more help so I contacted the MP that is in charge of that area.
He is on Leave till the 31st.. so I have to wait.
