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.
