A number of bird monitoring programs are in place at Bowra and all visitors are encouraged to assist. The main program is a Daily Bird Call which records the species seen each day and fixed route survey forms are available for those who wish to assist in bird monitoring. Bird lists and maps are supplied for all visitors. Our staff, volunteers and other visitors are a wonderful source of bird information.
Camping is in open areas adjacent to the amenities. There are facilities for a few caravans or camper trailers to access 240 volt power. This power is quite limited and not suitable for air conditioning, heating, cooking or other power-hungry uses. The water supply is bore water from the Great Artesian Basin. There are a couple of marked walks nearby including the nearby lagoon. Access to amenities (shower and toilet facilities) and power are dependent on your booking selection – please see booking and pricing details below.
