Callum Brae is a family operated, heritage listed working rural property. Created in 1920, the property is the finest working example of a soldier settlement lease in the ACT. It is significant because it characterises the principles and hardships endured by servicemen after the First World War. The heritage citation not only conserves the buildings but also the rural landscape, which is deemed significant because it captures a range of historical issues over a small geographical area. Callum Brae is located in one of the largest, best connected and most diverse ecosystems in Australia. The native grassland provides habitat for endangered species such as the Striped Legless Lizard, Grassland Earless Dragon and Perunga Grasshopper. The native woodland provides habitat for threatened species such as the Button Wrinklewort, Diamond Firetail and Scarlet Robin. Work continues to ensure the unique historical and ecological significance of the property is conserved for future generations.
