Friends of Great Victoria Desert Parks

The Friends of Great Victoria Desert Parks was formed in March 1994. We are supported by the Ceduna-based Alinytjara Wilurara Landscape Board and the Department of Environment and Water (DEW). Our activities are planned with them and the traditional owners of the area.

Field work in the Desert is our main focus and we have published a vegetation field guide - Shrubs and Trees of the Great Victoria Desert.

Our members come from all walks of life. Some are retired and some are in full-time or part-time work. All have a passion for the bush and a keen interest in natural and cultural history. The group has expertise in identifying flora and fauna and our volunteers enjoy sharing their skills and knowledge.
