Wombat Weekend

10/10

I traveled to South Australia to do this 2-day tour which was great value for money, informative and a great way to escape the city and contribute to wildlife conservation. I did it to add practical experience to my University Degree in Sustainable Development and Conservation and Wildlife Biology, and enjoy a holiday in Adelaide at the same time. I was very pleased to be involved with the vegetation survey, animal detection through scat analysis, spotlighting and installation of camera raps at wombat burrows. Accommodation was satisfactory and the food excellent.

How can this program be improved?

I would have loved to stay an extra day/night to do an overnight wombat stakeout. These animals are nocturnal and very cryptic.

Brookfield Wombat Habitat

10/10

I can not speak highly enough of this program. The staff in Adelaide at the Conservation Counsel Office was very approachable, professional and knowledgeable. They have an excellent staff not only in the administrative office but especially on the many locations where they provide volunteer opportunities. Coming from Canada, I learned a lot about the local flora/fauna and the endangerment of sensitive environmental areas. Our time spent at Brookfield was extremely interesting and very educational. It was great to be involved in a project on ground level and actually get your hands dirty.
I can not speak highly enough of the professionalism and the commitment to which the staff dedicate their time. It was one of my most memorable experiences in South Australia.
Wish we could have stayed longer,
Marjory McFadyen.

How can this program be improved?

The program is excellent the way it is.
I would have enjoyed a half hour of free time to roam around and explore the area around the homestead a little. (I enjoy photography)

A meaningful program that made an impact in my life

10/10

The Brookfield Wombat tour is a tour thats close to my heart. Before this tour I knew very little about the natural habitats of the Murray Region of South Australia, knew very little about the different species of kangaroos, wombats, birds and plants of the region, and knew nothing about the history of this region and people.
By joining this tour I've learned about the complex natural systems that lives in the ground, learned to identify some different species of birds by their flight pattern and posture, got to know A LOT more of the native animals in the region, and stories of the people that lived in Brookfield regions.

A great tour for its value. A great cause too, this tour supports the survival of the Brookfield Wombats.

P.S. definitely recommend sleeping in swags out on the front porch. The night sky is amazing. But choose a windy day to do so, otherwise the mosquitos...
