More About Mark..

From 1994 to 2012 Dr Mark Ravensdale provided a veterinary service to the Augusta-Margaret River region which extended from Augusta through the Scott River properties and Nannup  up to Busselton.  The original veterinary clinic was situated in Kudardup on the highway and after many years moved into Augusta’s industrial area.

 He then spent four years as a veterinarian for AQIS in most of the export abattoirs from Geralton to Albany before joining the adventure industry as a facilitator and trekking guide.  

 He still occasionally attends properties in the region and subcontracts to Landmark Breeding for cattle insemination.  He lives in Bunbury with his wife Fiona who is a paediatric nurse and lactation consultant now working in the Southwest Aboriginal Medical Service.



At the end of the presentation we'll relax & throw some snaggers on the barbie. It will be a great chance to keep talking about this key topic, network with our presenter & local landholders who have experiences to share.

Can't make it to the presentation? Don't worry, you are still very welcome to come along to this part of the event, we'd love to see you there!
