Arid Recovery Sunset Tour
Arid Recovery has opened its arid ecosystem restoration project to guided tag-a-long interpretive sunset tours where members of the public can experience how vibrant and widely inhabited Australia's outback was before European settlement and before the introduction of pastoralism and feral animals.
A unique exclusion fence protects the reserve inside of which cats, foxes and rabbits have been removed. Visitors will see reintroduced locally extinct species in their natural habitat and will gain an understanding of the importance of these creatures in the ecosystem.
Visitors will tag-a-long with a guide to watch the sunset from a spectacular dune lookout while discussing the latest conservation research happening at Arid Recovery. After dark, the guide will take guests spotlighting to the nocturnal hide for a chance to see bilbies, bettongs, bandicoots and stick-nest rats.
Operates: Start times vary according to sunset times - please contact the Roxby Downs Visitor Information Centre for enquiries and bookings.
