Birds SA Easter Campout: Mary Seymour Conservation Park (SE)

April 18 at 8:00 amApril 23 at 5:00 pm

Easter Campout – Thursday 18 to Tuesday 23 April: Mary Seymour Conservation Park (SE) 360km (Easy + fun time).  Given the continued very dry conditions in the north of our State the campout will be in the south-east at Mary Seymour (last visited in 2013) and will provide an opportunity to also visit nearby Bool Lagoon, Big Heath and Glen Roy Conservation Parks.  A visit to the outstanding Bourne’s Bird Museum is also planned.

 

To get there from Adelaide take the M1 freeway to Tailem Bend and then the A8 to Keith where you change onto the A66 and drive though Naracoorte towards Coonawarra and Penola.  About 17km south of Naracoorte, turn right at Bool Lagoon Road (large Bool Lagoon sign) and drive to the end of this road.  At the T junction turn right onto Bool Lagoon West Road and follow the signs to and then drive past Bourne’s Bird Museum until the road turns sharp left.  The entrance to the conservation park is on your left, near the southwestern corner of the park.  Our Birds SA signage will be posted from Thursday morning onwards.

 

There are no facilities in the park and pets and fires are not permitted. Whilst a portable toilet will be installed for the duration of the camp, participants will need to be self-sufficient with shelter, food and water supplies.   A camping fee of $15 per person covering the duration of the campout will be collected during the weekend and a receipt issued. The traditional Sunday gas barbeque lunch is planned (but remember you will need to provide your own tucker   {suggested bacon and eggs and/or pancakes}   – for the Committee Members present to do the cooking).

 

It would be most helpful if you could contact me on email: lyntonhuxley@gmail.com to secure your attendance or to get more information on this Birds SA Annual event.
