Go birding: Lawari Conservation Park

28 September, 2018 at 12:00 am2 October, 2018 at 12:00 am

The October long weekend Campout this year will be at the recently proclaimed Lawari Conservation Park on Hindmarsh Island. Just 100km south from Adelaide this location will enable most members to also participate on a day excursion basis if they wish. If you are choosing this option please arrange to be at the homestead by 8.30am on your chosen day. We have secured ‘Wyndgate’ Homestead located off Denver Road within the Conservation Park for our camp base. The Homestead has a shower, two toilets, a fully equipped kitchen and some rooms that can be used for limited numbers to stay in communal accommodation.Please make your dormitory bookings through the camp leader ASAP. There are plenty of campsites for those wishing to use tents, caravans or motorhomes. Alternatively you may choose to book accommodation at nearby places such as Goolwa.

Camp access for Birds SA will be from noon on Friday 28th September to noon on Tuesday 2nd October and a fee of $10 per person for the weekend will be collected from those staying on the property. This fee will cover some costs and to boost our Birds SA Conservation Fund. The Campout Organiser will issue a receipt for all fees collected.

If possible please bring a handheld UHF radio or vehicle mounted unit as we will use UHF Channel 14 for our Birds SA communication over the weekend. Mobile phones should work around this location, so if you arrive late call Lynton on 0498466092 for directions to our current birding location.

Our resident Fleurieu Birds members will assist with guiding and sharing their best birding spots at this location with us. I encourage new and younger members to join us at this fun event to improve both your bird watching skills and your knowledge.
