Illamurta Springs Conservation Reserve
The Illamurta Springs Conservation Reserve is one of the most beautiful and peaceful spots you can visit.
Its natural values are due to the impressive southern foothills of the James Range and the presence of a permanent natural spring.
The site is a moist habitat for several relict aquatic plant species and it protects the ruins of the old Illamurta Springs Police Camp, open between 1893 and 1912.
This served as an administration centre and distribution point for rations for Aboriginal people.
