Wildlife carers and cattle breeders, Andrew and Meredith Ryan copped the full brunt of the Sunday evening storm.

Their shed, roof and walls were blown 150 metres up the paddock by the fierce north-westerly winds on Sunday March 24.

"We watched the barbecue being blown off the verandah and only an hour after the storm passed did we realise the full extent of the damage", Meredith from charity FAWNA said.

They report that their wallaby and kangaroo joeys, while shaken, don't seem any the worse for their frightening experience.

"It is going to be a huge clean-up job and very expensive to replace lost farm and wildlife care infrastructure," said Mrs Ryan.

FAWNA (For Australian Wildlife Needing Aid) needs more volunteers to rescue and care for injured and orphaned animals.
