The Hiltaba Nature Reserve borders the Gawler Ranges National Park on the Eyre Peninsula. The reserve is located on Bungala, Kokatha and Wirangu countries. It is a wonderful environment for hiking. The geological interest, the distinctive vegetation, the wildlife and varieties of bird species can all be appreciated intimately when walking.
At the western end of the Gawler Ranges, the unique geological formations of this 770 square kilometre property provide habitat for species such as the Yellow-footed Rock Wallaby, the Slender-billed Thornbill and Desert Green-hood Orchid.
Hiltaba is home to more than 40 state-listed species and nine species listed for their conservation significance. For bird watchers, this is a must-see reserve, but eventhose without a pair of binoculars will appreciate Hiltaba’s birdlife.
The Nature Foundation is an apolitical not-for-profit foundation
that invests in conserving, restoring and protecting South Australian landscapes, flora and fauna to ensure their survival.
