About the region
Mowantjie Willauwar Conservation Park was proclaimed on the 2nd June 2005, and conserves nearly 143 hectares of Southern Cyprus Pine Forest. It is situated about 6 km south west of Tailem Bend. Mowantjie is the aboriginal name for the native pine found in the park, while Willauwar is a plural word meaning ‘forest of species’. Therefore the name Mowantjie Willauwar means ‘Native Pine Forest’, and this is a very accurate description of the park. The park was originally known as the Tailem Bend Forest and still appears on Google maps as such.
