About the Co-Operative
Round the Bend Conservation Co-operative (RTBCC) is a unique community living in a bush environment and sharing the experience of managing the integrity of the 128 hectares of dry schlerophyl forest.
It was formed in 1971 by a group of people who thought that a community settlement would be an active and positive way of preserving the Australian bush on a small scale. It does not aspire to self-sufficiency.
Registered under the Victorian Co-operation Act (2014) as a non-distributing small co-operative, the RTBCC is limited to 32 shares, which can be jointly or individually owned.
Living independently of each other, shareholders come together for various activities e.g.
• land management
• social get togethers
• monthly management
• involvement with various other organisations and flora and bird walks
To purchase a share in the co-operative one must qualify and be accepted as a member, this process takes on average 12 months. The Bend of Islands is a protected area, no domestic animals are permiitted.
As the property is part of a co-operative a standard mortgage is not available. Vendor finance may be available to an approved purchaser. Private inspection only
