Hello, I’m hoping someone can help me again. I’m trying to find out if Ida Valley station is now definitely a “former” pastoral lease and turned into a nature reserve (like Bulga & Cashmere nearby). What I’ve googled has sort of lead me to believe it is or part of it is now a nature reserve but I cannot locate a map/boundaries showing exactly what of the former station is now nature reserve.

I’d like to go exploring this region next year, so starting my research now. Other than Mt Forrest range and Depot Spring has anyone else travelled this nature reserve and got points of interest to visit?

Is anyone able to shed some light on this.

Thank you.

"This IMG has been prepared for the Bulga/Cashmere Downs and Ida Valley/MtForrest proposedreserves. These proposedreserves were purchased by the Department of Conservation and Land Management (CALM) between March and May 2002 for conservation purposes ..."

2006 document

Sounds like the land was transferred. But no map was included with that document. And I couldn't find any further updates.

Westprint Maps' Aust Outback Tracks 1M shows some info re Bulga Downs and Cashmere Downs, but nothing for Ida Valley. It looks to me as though not all of Bulga and Cashmere stations were declared, so I wonder if it's the same for Ida Valley.

My map is 2nd Edition. They are up to edition 5, so perhaps the later map has an Ida Valley update.

I'm about to order it. If it's a download I'll update this screenshot and post. If it's a CD there will be a delay for postage.

Cheers

EDIT: There is no change to that part of the map in Edition 5.

Thanks Candace, yes I did find that report which sort of cemented to me it was going to be or is a reserve, but would like to find a detailed map or boundary.

Thanks FrankP, yes that does help that map you provided, i can work with that.

have a look at this managment document
https://library.dbca.wa.gov.au/static/FullTextFiles/070954.pdf

Looks like only part of Ida Valley, Cashmere, and Bulga stations are in the reserves.
Document has good summary of all the information about the area. These management plans are great resources for trip planning.

That's the same document Candace linked to. Unfortunately it doesn't contain any maps. However on pages 8 and 9, areas are described by adjoining lease boundaries, so if someone has access to or can find a map of WA Pastoral leases, perhaps a map could be derived.

Thanks Gary, I had found that brochure, even though old, I needed to use it to show Dbca and Landgate, but I think I've finally got the info I'm after, got some boundaries and track info from Landgate, so look forward to exploring this conservation park in a few months.
