Nangawooka Flora Reserve offers wheelchair accessible viewing of a magnificent collection of Australian native plant species - lovingly & expertly curated over many years by Friends of Nangawooka Flora Reserve.

Nangawooka is the Aboriginal place name for Hindmarsh Valley and in Aboriginal, means 'place of springs'. Nangawooka Flora Reserve was established in 1982 and is a valuable open space and public asset of City of Victor Harbor. Read more about the history of Nangawooka Flora Reserve here.

Nangawooka Flora Reserve's bird-hide was named in honour of Field Naturalist Don Overall, who was instrumental in establishing Nangawooka Flora Reserve - to-date 80 different species of birds have been recorded.

Not only is there a beautifully curated 5 acre Australian native garden to explore (majority of plants have botanical identification plates) - there's a wheelchair accessible bird-hide (aptly named after past-president and founding member/Field Naturalist Don Overall), which contains 10 seats and multi-level viewing ports, offering non-invasive bird-watching/photography opportunities as the many species of native birds visit the watering point outside the bird-hide.

With Adelaide's improved North-South corridor, a day trip to Nangawooka Flora Reserve, Victor Harbor offers the perfect opportunity to escape the daily grind at any time of the year.
