Bringing Your Garden to Life

To attract wildlife to your backyard you need to have features that specific species would require and look for in natural bushland environments such as opportunities for foraging, shelter, protection and for breeding and raising young.

If you want wildlife to live in your backyard or become regular visitors then you will also need to ensure your garden has a permanent source of water and sufficient food resources to sustain them.

For all animals, including humans, a reliable source of water and food is essential for continued survival and habitat of an area.

By incorporating a combination of these resources you can significantly increase the habitat opportunities and value of your backyard for local native wildlife species.
