Introducing Geegeela

Nature foundation’s newest nature reserve is located between Naracoorte and Bordertown in the state’s southeast in an area known as Bangham. It comprises open to slightly undulating country with a medium to dense cover of remnant eucalypt and buloke woodlands with an understorey of annual grasses, sedges and shrubs. 

Geegeela Nature Reserve abuts the Geegeela Conservation Park, with a combined area of 960 hectares.

The property was generously donated to Nature Foundation by long term member, Karen Foale.

Reserve Management

The property is under a native vegetation heritage agreement and contains self-sustaining intact native vegetation requiring low ongoing maintenance. 

A baseline biological survey of the property has been conducted and the resulting report provides some initial management recommendations. This survey will inform a more detailed management plan.

Traditional owners

We are committed to developing partnerships with Aboriginal people to enhance conservation outcomes and increase cultural understanding. 

Visit Geegeela Nature Reserve

Nature Foundation may in the future open Geegeela Nature Reserve during volunteer events that support conservation work on the property.
