From the early 20th century to the 1970’s the Nullaki Peninsula was used as a pastoral area. Thereafter, the area was left largely untouched and allowed to return to its wild condition except for a few small grazing areas. In the late 1990’s the western end of the peninsula was rezoned as “private property; conservation zone” and a vermin proof fence and electric road gate installed to minimise feral predator entry. A fox baiting program was carried out reducing fox numbers thus allowing native species to begin expanding their numbers. Shoreline areas on ocean and inlet sides and other areas were set aside as reserves. The bulk of the remaining property was subdivided into approximately 100 acre blocks which were sold to private parties.
