Or why not travel two hours north of Adelaide for the weekend….

Wombat Conservation at Brookfield Conservation Park, Blanchetown                                     
Saturday 26 to Sunday 27 September

Over the past 18 months, increasing numbers of southern hairy-nosed wombats in the Murray Mallee have been found in poor condition with damage to their skin and other organs.  The cause of this has not been determined but is likely to be nutritional stress. In the areas affected wombats have been found, very few native grasses remain. Instead, the habitat is often dominated by weeds. This weekend, you will be involved in wombat warren or vegetation surveys involving the collection of data. The surveys plays a critical role in helping the long term survival of wombat populations in the region.

You will also have the opportunity to enjoy beautiful sunsets, view wildlife and discover the history of the park from sheep station to scientific research centre, visiting the woodcutter’s hut, charcoal pits and turn of the century homestead. Accommodation is at the Scientific Camp in bunks or swags with an open bush kitchen, long drop toilets and solar bag showers.

Enjoy this 2 day / 1 night experience for $80. Food, accommodation and return transport from Adelaide is included.
