Potential Hazards

Please be aware that this is a country property and there are many features  that are potential hazards.  If you visit Bandusia with children,  you do need to supervise them at all times.  For example, there is a dam on the property that is unfenced.  There are also the usual attractions and hazards of the Australian bush – such as snakes, kangaroos, spiders and koalas – and we’ve heard rumours we have platypus in the creek!
