Visit our reserves

Where possible we provide chances for people to visit our reserves.

Everyone has a role to play in keeping themselves and others safe. We're implementing all government directives around COVID-19 and take into account the remoteness of our properties, to ensure the safety of staff, partners and visitors.

Self-guided day visits: A great chance to explore some of our less remote properties, but visitors still need to be self-sufficient and come prepared for being out in the bush. No bookings required. Please check the weather and don't visit on days of Total Fire Ban or that are rated as High Fire Danger or greater. Also avoid visiting in stormy weather or during flooding events.

Camping stays: Possible on some of our remote properties. Visitors need to be well equipped and experienced remote travellers. Campsites are basic but provide a great base to explore self-guided tracks at your own pace. Bookings are required (at least one week in advance please). Campgrounds open seasonally with bookings open two months prior.

Guided trips: In 2022 we look forward to once again running guided trips. These are a great way for people to learn about a property, guided around by our knowledgeable reserve staff and other field experts. Trips range from day visits to multi-day stays, depending on the location and focus of the trip. Usually we advertise these activities from the end of February.
