Other incidents: Visitation restrictions

There are a number of restrictions on visitation and access by the general public to Yathong, Nombinnie and Round Hill Nature Reserves and Nombinnie State Conservation Area. 

  • These reserves are not available for overnight camping or hiking. Visitation is restricted to day visits only.
  • Vehicle access is restricted to the public roads passing through or adjoining the reserves. Management trails are closed to vehicles. However you are welcome to walk on the trails.
  • Bird watchers are welcome to walk into the reserves and along management trails. However take care to make sure you can navigate back to your car - it is easy to get disorientated in mallee country.
  • Trips to Round Hill Nature Reserve by bird watching clubs can be done by prior arrangement.
  • There are a number of scientific research programs happening in the reserves and visitors should not disturb any field equipment if they come across it.
