Nangawooka is a small 5 acre reserve on the main Victor Harbor road not far from McCracken Golf Club. (corner of Waterport Road and Adelaide-Victor Harbor Rd)

It’s a beautiful place for a walk with many varieties of native plants, trees and flowers as well as over 60 species of birds including a large population of Blue Wrens. You might even spot a few lizards, insects and even an echidna or two! There are nesting boxes among the trees and a bird hide in the centre of the reserve which is wheelchair accessible and has multi-level viewing ports for bird watching and photos.

The area is accessed by well-defined winding pathways through the plantings, which are very easily walked. The main paths are wheelchair friendly and the scented garden area has paved pathways.
There are seats dotted around the place as well as a gazebo for a picnic lunch and onsite, accessible toilet.

Visit the reserve in May or June at night and you might be lucky enough to spy a ghost mushroom! The below photos were taken by local photographer Nicole Rix in 2020. The bottom image is what they look like during the day, the top images are what they look like at night. How cool is that!

Find it on the corner of Waterport Road and Adelaide-Victor Harbor Rd
