Visit our reserves

With COVID-19 restrictions easing in most states and territories, we've re-opened self-guided day access at Reedy Creek and Currumbin reserves in Queensland, at Kojonup Reserve in Western Australia and Liffey River and Oura Oura reserves in Tasmania. If you plan to visit, please first check and adhere to state travel restrictions and follow physical distancing and hygiene practices.

Camp bookings for Charles Darwin (WA), Boolcoomatta (SA) and Carnarvon Station (QLD) continue to be on hold, and our guided trip program remains temporarily suspended.

Hamelin Outback Station Stay is closed but please check their website for updates on proposed opening.

We continue to assess these measures as the State, Territory and Federal Governments update the COVID-19 restrictions.  We look forward to your involvement in the field with us sometime soon. 

We want to give supporters a chance to visit the properties they generously help conserve, so we open reserves when conservation and safety considerations permit.

Some reserves are open for day trips only. Others have basic camping facilities and each year we offer a number of guided tours. Bookings are essential for camping and guided visits. Please allow up to 48 hours for confirmation.
