Newhaven Wildlife Sanctuary

General Information | Trips that go here

One of Central Australia’s best kept secrets is the Newhaven Wildlife Sanctuary. Wholly owned by the Australian Wildlife Conservancy, Newhaven is situated 360km’s north-west of Alice Springs. Measuring some 647,000 acres and containing 10 differing vegetation communities and landforms unique to any other reserve in Northern Australia.

Newhaven supports over 160 species of birds including the last reported sighting of the critically endangered Night Parrot.

Should our summer be generous with rain, Newhaven will flourish with species usually only seen on the Coastal Wetlands of this great country. Without generous rainfalls the arid land species are abundant as this is one of those rarely visited or interfered locations.
