Mikkira is about 30km southwest of Port Lincoln on the Fishery Bay Road. It is open to the public every day-except over the summer months and is closed from the 1st of November to the 1st of March (guided tour group excepted) due to high fire risk. There are many Manna Gum trees that the koalas live in. The leaves on those interesting trees are the koala's favorite food. Visitors to Mikkira enjoy the space and tranquility of the natural bush environment. It is a great place for bird-watching, picnics, koala spotting and camping. In late winter (or around April for Parsons Band) there are tiny native orchids to find on the short walk to the giant yakkas. You can visit for the day or camp overnight in your caravan, motor-home or tent. There is no electricity or sullage, but there are flush toilets and a hot shower.
