About Moora Moora
Founded in 1974 on Mount Toolebewong, the Moora Moora Cooperative Community is home to around 60 people who live on the property under a cooperative arrangement. The community includes six hamlets and a farming area.
The property, featuring 80-year-old mountain ash forests, is important habitat for the critically endangered Leadbeater’s Possum, which were found on the property for the first time in 2020.
One hundred and eighty hectares of the community is now protected under a conservation covenant through Trust for Nature.
Supported by the Victorian Government Faunal Emblems project, the covenant protects habitat for Leadbeater’s Possums and other threatened species such as Lace Monitors and Powerful Owls.
