The National Trust of South Australia has had an active interest in nature conservation since its inception in 1955, with some of the first properties donated to the Trust were nature reserves. Since then the National Trust has become responsible for a total of 23 reserves.

Our reserves are carefully maintained by a team of dedicated volunteers across the state. Vital conservation work is crucial not only for protecting South Australia’s biodiversity, but also to ensure that these pockets of nature are open to the public to enjoy and explore.

For more information about our reserves and working bees, you can email our Natural Heritage Manager Alex Emmins at or call 8202 9227.
