#PlacesOfNRM – Bowgada Nature Reserve

Bowgada Nature Reserve is located within the Shire of Perenjori, approximately 30 minutes’ drive west of Bowgada and 15 minutes north of Perenjori.

The reserve is approximately 20ha and provides an important sanctuary for native flora and fauna in the region. The Bowgada Nature Reserve is part of the Wildflower Way which starts in Geraldton and finishes in Dalwallinu.

There are a number of beautiful local trees here, including the York gum (Eucalyptus laxophleba) and the Bowgada (Acacia linophylla). The York gums play a crucial role in these woodlands, providing hollows for animals such as the Western spiny-tailed skink (Egernia stokesii badia) and previously, the Brushtail possums, who once frequented York gum woodlands like these.
