A short distance from Canberra, on the banks of the Murrumbidgee River, is a hidden treasure called Scottsdale Reserve. This November, join Reserve Manager Phil Palmer and other Bush Heritage staff for a one-day guided visit of this conservation reserve, and see how it’s being returned to good health.

At 1328 hectares, Scottsdale is home to some of Australia’s most threatened temperate ecosystems and an incredibly diverse range of species.

On this visit, you will drive through varied landscapes and hear first-hand about some of the innovative projects currently underway, from developing a hi-tech water recycling nursery to, restoring native grasslands and working with key partners on improving the health of the Murrumbidgee river.

To get around the property efficiently, we travel by 4WD and stop regularly to get out and explore. Participants need to have good mobility and be comfortable walking on uneven and sometimes steep terrain.
