Visit our reserves

Guided trips for 2020

As some of our properties were affected by the summer fires and due to the current impacts from COVID 19, we have postponed a number of our planned trips.  We hope to still run some guided activities later in the spring months and will update our website and communicate through our Bush Banter emails later in the year.  

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.

Please check conditions on one of the many emergency fire and weather apps before taking a self-guided visit to one of our properties. Please do not visit in adverse weather or if fire danger is rated 'very high' or above.

Details of guided tours in 2020 will be available soon.
