Fogg Dam Conservation Reserve

Fogg Dam was built in the 1950s to provide irrigation to the Humpty Doo Rice Project. The agricultural scheme failed, but the dam became a dry-season refuge for an amazing range of wildlife, especially waterbirds. It’s best to visit the Fogg Dam Conservation Reserve at sunrise or sunset, when there is the most activity. There are a few lovely walks through the park, such as the Monsoon Forest Walk, a 2.7 km trail that traverses a variety of fascinating habitats. Guided tours of Fogg Dam Conservation Reserve are available during the day and at dusk; also inquire about ranger-guided nocturnal walks (for bookings call (08) 8988 8188). Several walks also reveal the Adelaide flood plains’ natural beauty.
