On the Eyre Peninsula the Nature Foundation's Hiltaba Station offers two walking trails:
The 780sq km sanctuary borders the Gawler Ranges. Magnificent granite hills overlooking plains of diverse grass and woodlands are the landscapes that make up Hiltaba nature reserve. Hiltaba is a crucial link in the East Meets West NatureLinks Corridor. It carries a diverse range of habitats, from Acacia shrublands and Casuarina woodlands to Mallee forest and tussock grasslands, making it ideal country for over forty state?listed species and nine species listed by the Commonwealth for their conservation significance. For bird watchers, Hiltaba is a reserve worth making the trip for.

About the region
The Gawler Ranges National Park is a special place where history, conservation and Aboriginal culture come together. Proclaimed as a national park in 2002, the landscape teems with wildlife and protects rare and threatened plants and animals, including crimson mallee and the yellow-footed rock-wallaby.
The park is famous for the magnificent Organ Pipes, formed over 1500 million years ago as a result of volcanic eruptions. You can find equally stunning rocky outcrops at Yandinga Falls and Kolay Mirica Falls.
