Totadgin Conservation Park offers a picturesque setting for a picnic and provides an ideal location to discover much of the native flora and fauna inhabiting the area. Take a gentle stroll along the bottom of the Totadgin Rock, which is a granite outcrop with a similar wave formation to the more famous Wave Rock in Hyden. Discover the plethora of native birds that live in the reserve, including the White-eared Honeyeater and Chestnut-rumped Thornbill.

Relax at the picnic area under the shade of the woodlands and enjoy a barbecue lunch before continuing on to explore more of the reserve. A visit to the reserve in spring is even more spectacular with the diverse assortment of wildflowers out on display.

Totadgin Dam Reserve is located 14 kilometres or just five minutes drive south of the Central Wheatbelt town of Merredin which is three hours drive north east of Perth. Discover more of the surroundings by taking the 75 minute walk along the Merredin Peak Heritage Trail and take in the superb views along the way.
