Karte Conservation Park comprises of thick, low scrub covering steep sand dunes which rise up to 40 metres. During the early twentieth century much of the surrounding land was cleared, except for areas that were unsuitable for agriculture.
Interpretive signs along the 1.5km walking trail in the park provide an insight into the importance of the area’s remaining vegetation, which provides a habitat for the threatened malleefowl.
Picnic areas and campsites are located near the start of the trail and provide an opportunity to enjoy the park’s vast expanse of wilderness and admire stunning views across the district. You may even encounter some of the park’s residents such as the western grey kangaroos, echidnas or fat-tailed dunnarts.

If you have a smartphone or tablet you can download the free Avenza Map app and have interactive national park maps on hand when you need them.
The app uses your device’s built-in GPS to plot your real-time location within the park onto a map. The app can be used without a network connection and without roaming charges. You can also measure area and distance, plot photos and drop placemark pins.

2. Open up the app and click the shopping cart icon.
3. Click ‘Find’ and type the name of the national park or reserve you are looking for.
4. Click on the map you are after and install it (all our maps are free).
5. You will now find a list of your installed maps on the home page of the Avenza Maps app.
