Meldanda is a reserve near Cambrai which has nature trails, gardens and a campsite. And some excellent trees. Peramangk, Ngaiawang, Ngarrindjeri and Nganguruku country.
We’ve had a few outings to Kaisterstuhl Conservation Park, which is a glorious place for a walk. On our last visit (in May) we took the longer trail, Wallowa, which heads up the hill to the Kaiserstuhl Native Forest Reserve.
