Witchelina and Hiltaba Nature Reserves are open between 1 April and 31 October to day visitors, campers and visitors staying in accommodation. The reserves are closed during the summer months.

 

Witchelina and Hiltaba Nature Reserves are such beautiful and important landscapes that we are keen to share them with our members and supporters.

Our Nature Reserves are examples of excellence in private conservation management where biodiversity conservation gains are achieved through landscape scale initiatives.

We have opened up the reserves for selected nature-based tourism and geo-tourism activities, within guidelines that manage the impact of visitation. Visitors to our reserves will gain a far deeper and more profound insight into Nature Foundation's work, and the importance of nature conservation, by experiencing it first-hand.
 

Witchelina

Witchelina is a magnificent outback reserve extending from Lake Torrens in the south to Marree in South Australia’s far north. This former pastoral property reserve is home to Thick-billed Grasswrens, Wedge-tailed Eagles, Spinifex Hopping Mice, Stripe-faced Dunnarts, Plains Mice, River Red Gum and Coolibah Woodland and Blue Bush shrublands, and includes spectacular geological sites.

Hiltaba

Hiltaba is a must-see for bird watchers, and even those without binoculars will appreciate the birdlife on this beautiful property at the western end of the Gawler Ranges. Discover ancient granite hills overlooking plains of diverse grass and woodlands, home to species including the Yellow‐footed Rock-wallaby, the Slender‐billed Thornbill and Desert Green-hood Orchid.
