Murray Mallee Ecology
Illawonga offers a beautiful 1800 acre mallee reserve which has been allowed to regenerate free from the pressures of farming, for over 20 years. The property is home to hundreds of wombats and kangaroos and a host of native bird species. Students are guided through an interpretive program explaining why the early settlers cleared the mallee trees and what effects this has had on Murray River.
Transport is on the Safari Trailer, and activities include treasure hunt, a short hike and observational games.
