About Carly Corcoran - Caretaker
Ben Ricketts is owned by a group of families who have been staying here since the late 1940s. The original owners, Ray and Peter Page welcomed guests to Ben Ricketts for more than 50 years. 'Ben Ricketts Environmental Preserve' came into being when these several families came together to preserve Peter & Ray's legacy. We care for the property's cabins and 40 hectares of rainforest and have a voluntary conservation agreement with the NSW government, protecting the rainforest and its inhabitants in perpetuity.
Carly Corcoran - Caretaker purchased this Cabin in 2004
Why Carly Corcoran - Caretaker chose Jamberoo
Ben Ricketts is a hugely important part of the life of its shareholders, many of whom have visited for three generations. We came together to preserve both the environment and this community, and to share it with others.
