The Cape is a sustainable housing estate situated on the traditional land of the Bunurong people. Using bio-diverse sensitive urban design principles, extensive areas of the estate area have been set aside to re-establish native fauna and indigenous flora habitat to co-exist with housing and community infrastructure.
The Cape is located on the western edge of the seaside village of Cape Paterson on Victoria’s Bass Coast, bordered on the south by the Bunurong Coastal Reserve and a wild surf coast which is part of the Bunurong Marine Coastal Park.
The Cape Chatter Blog, as part of the Cape Chatter website, is a periodic newsletter which will record interesting and seasonal nature observations within the borders of The Cape estate and abutting Bunurong Coastal Reserve. It will also photo-document the restoration of the estates natural habitat. The website has been designed to provide a useful resource to enhance resident and visitor awareness of the surrounding natural world, and the benefits this can bring to our daily lives and the community as a whole.
