IFFA outing Bush Heritage Nardoo Hills Reserve

Published 12/07/12

Non-members welcome

Come and join Bush Heritage’s Victorian Reserves Manager Jeroen van Veen for an exclusive visit to Nardoo Hills Reserve.

This 817 ha reserve supports a large diversity of vegetation communities including grey box grassy woodland, boxironbark and mallee, providing vital habitats for a range of wildlife. Since Bush Heritage acquired the first property in 2004 and actively managed it for conservation outcomes, the transformation has been remarkable.

After an initial introduction over a cup of tea we will set off on foot to explore more of this wonderful property; taking in some of the key features and management practices. The terrain is rather rocky and hilly but the pace will be gentle to allow for plenty of looking and talking. We are likely to cover around 3-5km. Don’t forget to bring your cameras and binoculars.

Visit details: 10.30am – 3pm at reserve, reachable by 2WD, ~210km NW of

Melbourne (allow 3hrs driving time), nearest town is Wedderburn 12km.

We’ll organise a carpool for people who are without transport. Composting toilet on site. The cost of the tour will be a voluntary donation to the Bush Heritage Reserve.

You will need: BYO all food and drinks, reasonable level of fitness/mobility, arrange own transport to and from the reserve (or carpool), wear comfortable clothing and sturdy foot wear for off-track walking.

For bookings call Fam Charko 04 02519124 or email: bookings@iffa.org.au.

Please state your name, phone number, number of people attending and if you need a spot in the carpool. Some members may be staying overnight nearby; you may be interested too.
