Bowra is a hotspot for Australia's threatened birdlife. It is renowned as one of the country's most rewarding birdwatching destinations, featuring iconic species such as Hall's Babbler, Chestnut-breasted Quail Thrush and the Grey Falcon.

Located in the heart of the Mulga Lands, on the Warrego River plains, Bowra is a vitally important property for the conservation of Australia's wildlife.

After being in the McLaren family for five generations, Ian and Julie McLaren made the difficult decision that Bowra must be sold. Fortunately, Australian Wildlife Conservancy secured the contract to acquire Bowra to ensure that its diversity of habitats and extraordinary wildlife - particularly its birds - will be protected in perpetuity.

The Federal Government made a generous grant from the National Reserve System to assist with the purchase of Bowra.

We have received generous assistance from Birds Australia, the Bird Observer's Club and other groups committed to providing a secure future for Bowra and ensuring that birdwatchers from around Australia (and the world) can continue to enjoy this remarkable destination. Please join the campaign to protect Bowra.
