Our updated Bushwalking in Lincoln National Park brochure is hot off the press and now available as a comprehensive guide to the more than 100 km of walking trails that we maintain in the Park, spanning a diverse range of natural environments. If you are coming this way, copies of the brochure can be purchased at the Visitor Information Centre or the DEWNR office in Port Lincoln, or it can be downloaded from the DEWNR website.

Another recently completed project is the preparation of a herbarium of Lower Eyre Peninsula native flora by Ian and Chris Abbott, dedicated members of our group. This complements the herbarium of the Coffin Bay National Park prepared by the late Sally and Barney Williams. Both are now housed in the Eyre Natural Resource Centre in Port Lincoln, and are available as a community educational and reference resource.

Our "Day in the Park” event in October provided an opportunity for our members and the public to learn about the history of the Lincoln National Park, and its resident plants and birds, from our own member “experts”. A very enjoyable day was had by all, and the open invitation to the public has had the positive result of attracting several new members.

Members recently spent two days giving the Donington Cottage and surrounds a thorough spring clean and checkup of facilities.The Cottage, originally the Cape Donington lighthouse keeper’s residence, is a popular overnight accommodation venue for visitors to the Lincoln National Park. It overlooks a beautiful secluded beach, and is close by to the Park walking trail network. Bookings can be made through the Port Lincoln Visitor Information Centre.
