Nocoleche Nature Reserve

Open, check current alerts 


Nocoleche Nature Reserve was created in September 1979. It covers an area of 74000ha. View the detailed park and fire management documents.

Nocoleche Nature Reserve is dominated by mulga and white wood vegetation communities. Poplar box and black box are present in lower, more fertile areas. The reserve has an eight kilometre frontage to the Paroo River, which supports the largest stand of yapunya within its limited range.

It is regularly used for wetlands and water fowl research, feral animal research and educational activities.

To visit Nocoleche Nature Reserve, head to King Charlie Waterhole picnic area. This peaceful spot near a relatively permanent outback waterhole is the only part of the reserve accessible to the public.
