Starting from the car park off Sturt Highway, Blanchetown, this walk takes you on a circuit within Brookfield Conservation Park via the Three Habitat Walk. Brookfield Conservation Park lies within a semi-arid plain of mallee, sugarwood and bluebush, providing a protected habitat for an abundance of birdlife and native animals, including wombats, kangaroos, dunnarts and emus. This short and easy walk follows a gently undulating loop through the park, with benches at each stop and interpretive signs explaining the habitats, allowing walkers to pause, take in the landscape and look out for wildlife. Early in the morning, southern hairy-nosed wombats can often be spotted venturing out to graze on dewy spear grasses. This loop consists of fairly flat dirt trails suitable for all fitness levels and can be done in either direction. Toilets are located at the picnic area near the car park. Dogs are not permitted in this park. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
Before you start any bushwalk ensure you;
• Tell someone you trust where you are going and what to do if you are overdue
• Have adequate equipment, supplies, skills & knowledge for the whole journey
• Consider the impact of weather forecasts, park/track closures & fire dangers
• Can respond to emergencies & call for help at any point
• Are healthy and fit enough for this journey
If not, change plans and stay safe. It is okay to delay and ask people for help.
