New for 2012 - Self-Guided Drive
The Turlee Heritage Loop Tour, a 24km self-guided track around the northern end of the property, provides guests with a pastoralist’s perspective of the Willandra Lakes World Heritage Area, the Wakefield family history and local outback culture.
Through the Lower Murray Darling Catchment Management Authority (LMDCMA)’s incentives program using funds from Caring For Our Country, the drive tour aims to protect the delicate Willandra Lakes World Heritage Area, with a designated track restricting traffic on the lunette, which highlights both the natural and cultural points of interest.
There are 20 points of interest on the drive tour with informational handouts available on station as well as picnic tables located half way around the track.
The self-guided drive tour will take guests on average 2 hours to complete and is 4wd preferred but not essential.
