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 will be guided through an interpretive program
explaining why the early settlers cleared the mallee trees and what
effects this has had on Murray River.
