Fri. 8 to Sun. 10 Sep.
If you'd like to discover more about the ‘back of Bourke’, join our Reserve Managers David and Sue Akers for a short tag-along camping trip at Naree Station Reserve.
This 14,400 hectare property was bought for conservation in 2012 after 150 years of sheep and cattle grazing. It's a patchwork of woodlands, grasslands and ephemeral wetlands and just the right size to explore in a long weekend.
The reserve has a wide variety of wetland, grassland and woodland birds, both sedentary and migratory. Red, Eastern and Western Grey Kangaroos are all here, and there's a range of smaller mammals – frogs, reptiles and other creatures (though they're often reclusive and may not be seen).
David and Sue have lived and worked in the outback for many years and enjoy sharing their knowledge and experience.
Naree is in north-western NSW, 150km north-west of Bourke, 130km west of Enngonia and 65km south of Hungerford. Note: This is a remote area – service providers, medical and emergency services aren't close at hand.
