Selected PROJECTS 


Nunduk is an Off Grid luxury spa retreat using regenerative sustainabilty principles. The proposed land for this project is located on the southern shores of Lake Wellington in Gippsland, Victoria. The project will be a multifaceted development currently planned to be 6 star Greenstar, including using site specific geothermal assets for spas and associated agricultural activities as well generating it’s own power and water and taking care of its waste.

The site is significantly degraded from salt water entering the Gippsland Lakes system and the degradation is continuing rapidly. The development plans to use a touch lightly approach preserving significant and valuable habitat and regenerate some degraded areas to create land with improved ecological value. Lifted above the salt layer this land will bring back a broader diversity and vitality to the natural environment.
