Easter Campout – Mary Seymour Conservation Park (SE) 360km

March 28April 2

Easter Campout: Birds SA

EXCURSION TERRAIN DIFFICULTY: Moderate

The 2024 Easter Campout will be held at Mary
Seymour Conservation Park in the southeast, about
360km from Adelaide. Our last visit there was in 2019,
and our return will provide an opportunity to also visit
nearby Bool Lagoon, Big Heath and Glen Roy
Conservation Parks to update the bird records for
these locations.

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.
  • Birds SA signage will be posted from Thursday
    morning onwards.

Please note:

  • There are no facilities in the Conservation Park, and
    pets and fires are not permitted.
  • A portable toilet will be installed for the duration of the camp.
  • Campers will need to be self-sufficient with shelter, food and
    water supplies.
  • A camping fee of $40 per person covering the duration of the campout
    will be collected during the weekend and a receipt issued.
  • The traditional Sunday gas barbecue lunch is
    planned. Please provide your own tucker
    (suggested bacon and eggs, and/or pancakes) for
    the Committee Members present to do the cooking.
