ABOUT US

Located on 500 acres in the picturesque Hindmarsh Valley, South Australia, (near Victor Harbor) Softfoot is a family owned conservation property. 

 Softfoot has of a herd of around 200 world class environment friendly alpacas and also has a breeding facility for rare and endangered Australian marsupials

The Retallick family, the founders of Softfoot, have endeavoured to improve their lands in an eco-friendly manner by:-

Extensive native tree and shrub planting 50,000 plus to absorb many tons of CO2 and to encourage the return of native species to the property.

The construction of a Murray-Darling based wetland ecosystem that provides habitat for rescued long neck tortoises and endangered fresh water fish species the Purple spotted gudgeon (Mogurnda adspersa) and Climbing galaxias (Mogurnda adspersa). We also support the work of the Aquasave organisation by providing a surrogate dam for the breeding  of the endangered Pygmy Perch. 

Many species of water bird now inhabit this our wetlands including pelicans, black swans and many more.

The creation of 4 fully fenced feral proof wildlife sanctuaries to help breed for eventual wild release of a variety of endangered Australian marsupials.  These include the brush tailed betting, long nosed potoroos and Southern Brown bandicoot. 

Alpacas were selected for the property to mirror our conservation goals as they are an animal that does not damage the fragile soil surface due to their soft feet.
